Previous Episode: The X Factor Australia Season Four – Finale (Pt. 1)
After thousands of auditionees, twelve finalists and a countless number of performances and votes, the winner of The X Factor 2012 will…eventually…be announced!
It turns into a massive stage performance that could potentially give last night’s performance a run for its money.
After talking to the judges and looking at last night’s performance, it’s time to get down to some finale-style business.
Guest: Owl City
Again, this includes the entire top eleven.
We then have a look back at the year that was.
Anyway, it’s time for another guest performer, to perform with the final 3.
FINAL THREE PERFORMANCE
And finally, something we all want to know- who has placed third!
THIRD PLACE DECIDED
The act leaving The X Factor Australia 2012 in THIRD PLACE is… THE COLLECTIVE!
Phew, that was close. Look, The Collective are great; but spare me the 12-year old fanfare that would have been associated with their win and let someone with a bit more appeal (Jade or Owen) win this thing!
Now, for a certain X Factor alumni band’s exclusive performance of their new single.
Obviously that was a recording- which may have disappointed some of the female fans in the audience!
Luke then chats to the family of Samantha Jade before reviewing her time on the show with some loving words from her family members.
She then sings for the final time.
This song was picked as her best performance of the season.
Judges’ Comments: Ronan calls her a superstar and is delighted she is in the grand finale. Natalie thinks she is absolutely beautiful and called the performance ‘ridiculous’ in a good way! A REALLY good way! Mel reiterates those comments.
We then go through the same ritual for Jason Owen.
Judges’ Comments: Ronan is proud of him and congratulates Mel. The change in Jason has stunned Natalie. Guy says he is the epitome of what music can offer.
It’s now time for the results.
THE WINNER DECIDED!
THE WINNER OF THE X FACTOR 2012 IS…
Samantha is the first female winner in The X Factor history! Guy is the winning mentor for the second year running!!
This was the final episode of The X Factor Australia Season Four!
