Vote for your favorite winner, considering how much he delivered after he built a platform out of the show.

Well considering the type of music I like Matt, Leona and James. Leona for the epic operatic pop. Matt for the amazing indie rock. James for the good old urban pop stuff.

My favorite would have to be Leona too...ever since she released Glassheart - Fireflies and Glassheart have been listened to every other day AT LEAST.

They've all been a bit hit and miss (I've liked a couple of Leona and Alexandra's singles but not been into their whole bodies of work) but the closest for me is probably Little Mix. They've released some good pure pop stuff that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Leona for me! There's been such a variety of stuff on each of her albums and her voice is just beautiful.

I also think Alexandra, Little Mix & James have all had pretty good post-XF releases.

I'm not a huge fan of LM or James, but I've had their albums on at work, and they've got it 'right' with their sound I think. LM though are at least showing progression into their second album and sound a lot more polished, and more 'expensive' and I'm really enjoying what I've heard so far (much more than their debut!)

The others, I've just never really been that keen on. A lot of the time, I feel like they missed the mark with the 'winners album's sound'... I mean I didn't really 'like' any of the others anyway, they just weren't my cup of tea (but I'm always open to trying new albums!)

Joe hasn't sold on the scale of some others, but he's made four albums and will be releasing a fifth - more than some winners

I think it's Alexandra and Leona. I think Spirit and Overcome are the best albums to have come from the show.

Overcome was managed by RocNation and the material was of really high quality for a reality contestant. The same for Leona and her debut with input from Clive Davis. These albums broke the mould.

I would probably go Little Mix.
I will always have a soft spot for Leon Jackson. Might not of been the best singer but his voice was lovely.
And some of Leona. Well her first era I loved.

My opinions on each of these, in order...

01 Alexandra Burke [my personal favourite taste; I LOVE her free EP that she released not too long ago as well as her first album. Her second album was not too bad either though!]
02 Leona Lewis [so many classes]
03 Little Mix [Very versatile and they have really marketed themselves well]
04 James Arthur [So far doing well, some lovely songs on the album. Will be interesting if he keeps the standard though!]
05 Matt Cardle [A bit hit and miss, but when he hits, he hits!]
------a massive gap of quality-----
06 Shayne Ward
07 Joe McElderry
08 Leon Jackson
09 Steve Brookstein

Steve and Joe I haven't enjoyed anything they've done.

I actually think Leon's comeback single is very underrated. But other than that I don't know anything else that he's done.
James's comeback single is fantastic, but time will tell if he can hold it up.

Shayne's stuff was hit and miss but mostly hit. No Promises and No U Hang Up are great.

Leona's stuff is good but not stuff id choose to listen to over and over. Run is my favourite song of hers, I also love Hurt and Footprints In The Sand but other than that she's just a bit too safe for me.

Little Mix have done so well, I love pretty much all of what they've released so far.

But my favourite is Alexandra, she has released some GREAT songs. Even her winners single is amazing.

Leona, but I did like quite a number of Shayne's tracks! 'Something Worth Living For' is amazing Should've been a single!
