W Factor 2017 Champion Crowned 👑
Tuesday 31st October 2017

Well, what can we say? Would Simon Cowell be impressed with our talented vocalists? Yes! without a doubt. The W Factor, now in its 11th year has grown into a technically professional show with equally professional standard performers.

It was a very tough decision for the Judges, Pete Berry and Graham Cowley, who together with the audience vote had to decide this year’s winner. On another night any one of the six could have taken the title W Factor Champion, however, on this occasion, Charlie Jackson came away as victor, by a narrow margin to Charlotte Barker and Bethan Carter.

Each and every performer would not have been out of place on a professional stage, each performing with a maturity well beyond their tender years.

The buzz backstage was palpable; Six top vocalists from year 8-12 each prepared 2 songs

Singer Song 1 Song 2
Poppy Rigby Fight Song – Rachel Platten Heroes – Alesso
Hannah Stables Words as Weapons – Birdy Arms – Christina Perry
Abi Johnson Make you feel my love – Adele Skyscraper – Demi Levato
Bethan Carter When we were young – Adele Valerie – Amy Winehouse
Charlotte Barker Missed – Ella Henderson Happier – Ed Sheeran
Charlie Jackson Ave Maria – Beyonce Titanium – David Guetta

The customary prolonged hesitation eventually gave way to rapturous applause and an impressive burst of fireworks, announcing the winner – Charlie Jackson! duly crowned as W Factor Champion 2017. She performed the song Titanium by David Guetta as her winner’s song to a massive round of applause.

Watch out for great things from these star performers!
