Matt Terry was crowned The X Factor winner on Sunday night after beating Finnish singer Saara Aalto in the final.

He picked Sam Smith's James Bond theme tune, Writing's On The Wall, to sing as his favourite song of the series and he also performed Randy Crawford's hit One Day I'll Fly Away.

His first single as The X Factor winner will be When Christmas Comes Around, which is a festive song written by Ed Sheeran.

Did the right person win? What do you think?

I think Saara should have won because she has a really powerful voice and great vocals but Matt was good too.
