Sam Bailey wins X Factor 2013

Story Highlight

After a shamazing performance on Saturday night with judge Nicole, Sam took the 2013 X Factor crown.

Sam Bailey is the 2013 X Factor champion.

The former prison officer, dubbed Screwbo due to her Susan Boyle-esque transformation from scruffy singer to champ, beat 17-year old Nicholas McDonald to the top spot.

The 36-year old blew away the judges and audience when she duetted with Nicole Scherzinger on Saturday night.

The two women took to the stage and did their best to outdiva one another with a huge performance of And I’m Telling You from the musical Dream Girls.

While the majority of people were blown away by the battle of the lungs, many others – including Louis Walsh – accused Nicole of hogging the limelight and stealing Sam’s moment.
