One Direction back Little Mix to win X Factor

One DirectionBoyband One Direction are backing Little Mix to win this year’s series of the X Factor.

One Direction are hoping the girl-group are the winners of this year’s series. Little Mix are now emerging as the favourites to win. One Direction came third in last year’s competition and have gone on to enjoy chart success. Louis Tomlinson told The Sun ‘They’re different to most girl groups who go on the show.’ The band also endorsed Little Mix during a video chat with fans.

Craig Colton, who was voted off the X Factor on Sunday, has also given his support to the group. In a post-exit interview he told Lorraine Kelly ‘I think out of everyone who has made the biggest journey and has improved the most, I think it’s got to be Little Mix. They’ve come out of nowhere….They were always favourite to go early on and they have literally come out of nowhere’

If Little Mix were to win the competition they would be the first group to do so. So far the competition has always been won by solo singers with Alexandra Burke and Leona Lewis being notable winners.
