Matt Cardle matt cardle fansite

Matt Cardle is a 27-year-old painter who first appeared on our screens when he auditioned for the X-Factor in London and sang Amy Winehouse's "I'm No Good". Before appearing on the X-Factor he was the guitarist and frontman for the band Seven Summers.

However, it wasn't until bootcamp that he really shone and gave an incredible rendition of Roberta Flack's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and really blew the judges away even prompting Simon Cowell to ask Louis "Why didn't we notice him before?".

He never looked like losing through the live stages and was crowned X-Factor winner 2010 on 12th December.

16/12/2010 - 400 wristbands will be handed out at HMV Bayswater in London from 8am today on a first-come, first-served basis (in other words if you're reading this now- they've already gone!). He'll also be coming out to meet everyone and sign some autographs after the performance which is from 5pm.

Matt appears on the Chris Moyles show on BBC Radio 1

Chris Moyles radio interview14/12/2010 - It must have been an early start for Mr Cardle this morning as he was interviewed live on probably the biggest radio show on BBC radio 1, The Chris Moyles Show. The X Factor winner talks about his life since winning, punching Dannii, his love life and Harry whispering in his ear! Click here to watch the interview.

"When We Collide" looking set to be this years Christmas #1

On course for christmas number 114/12/2010 - To date, Matt's debut single, "When We Collide", has already sold over 112,000 copies since Sunday night when it was officially released. To put that into perspective he is selling twice the amount of Rihanna's "What's My Name" (should have taken that snog when you had the chance Matt, she won't be too happy with you now!). Watch Matt sing When We Collide on the finals night.

It looks like the various campaigns to derail an X-Factor winner scoring a Christmas number 1 have faltered this year with Cage Against the Machine only selling 6,000 copies of silence so far.

Matt apoligises to Danni Minogue for punching her in the face

Matt punches Danni in the face13/12/2010 - That headline got your attention didn't it! It happened as all the contestants rushed the stage last night, Matt (full of emotion we hope) looks to punch the air but connects with our favourite Antipodean.

On watching the incident back on "This Morning" he said he felt so bad and has since tweeted Danni an apology- oops! Don't worry, she wasn't hurt in the least and has laughed it all off.

19.44 million people tune in to see Matt Cardle win the X-Factor

13/12/2010 - Figures released today show that at it's peak last night, the X-Factor had 19.44 million viewers- wow! It's also been revealed that there were more than 15 million phone votes registered in last night's show as well. We're not very good at maths but if Matt had 39.92% of the vote after the first freeze, 39.83% after the second and 44.61% (figures published by ITV) well that means he received... um... a lot!

As soon as he heard the news he had won, Danni was first to congratulate him, and then as always the complete gentleman he went straight over to hug Rebecca Ferguson as the runner-up. Barely able to speak with emotion he thanked everyone from the bottom of his heart for voting.

Matt faced Rebecca Ferguson in the final round as One Direction came a surprise third place. Matt will now release his debut single "When We Collide" in time to compete for the christmas number 1 spot.

Matt covers "Firework" originally by Katy Perry in final X-Factor show

Firework sang by Matt Cardle on final show12/12/2010 - Matt opened the series final show tonight by singing Katy Perry's "Firework". It went down fantastically with all the judges with Simon Cowell's only complaint being the trousers Matt was wearing! Click here to watch the video of Matt covering "Firework" again.

Cher Lloyd is eliminated as Matt marches on to final show

11/12/2010 - She was the bookies favourite to exit the show tonight so it came as no great surprise that Cher Lloyd found herself with the last public votes and was eliminated from the X-factor. It was nervous though as Matt was the last contestant to be named as one of the final 3. He will tomorrow for the final time by One Direction and Rebecca Ferguson.

"Unfaithful"- Matt duets with Rihanna in finals show

Rihanna and Matt duet the song Unfaithful11/12/2010 - Do you think Matt enjoyed this performance? (what a silly question!). Click here to watch Matt Cardle pair up with Rihanna to sing "Unfaithful". This has to go down as one of the highlights (let's add it to all the other highlights for Matt!) of the series- we thought they were going to snog at the end!

Song choices for tonight revealed?

11/12/2010 - Lots and lots of rumours about what the song choices for tonight are but front-runners for Matt are "Here With Me" or "You Know I'm No Good" then to duet with with Rihanna singing "Unfaithful" or "Umbrella". Need to be watching ITV1 from 7pm tonight to find out if any rumours are true. Also it has been revealed that a contestant will be leaving at the end of tonight's show so as soon as lines open- get voting!

Matt to duet with Rihanna in the X-Factor final show!

Matt to duet with Rihanna09/12/2010 - It was confirmed today that Rihanna is to join Matt on stage on Saturdays final show. Speaking at today's press conference Matt said he was "excited" about performing with her.

It was also revealed that Robbie Williams will be singing with One Direction, will join Cher and Rebecca Ferguson will welcome Christina Aguilera to the stage.

Matt Cardle is through to the final show of the X-Factor!

05/12/2010 - We were made to wait as Dermot read the results but Matt is through to the very last show and now has a real chance of winning! Cher Lloyd and Mary Byrne found themselves in the bottom two positions and after a sing-off it was Mary that went home as she only received 1 vote (from Louis) with the other 3 opting to send Cher into the finals. So the final four are Matt Cardle, One Direction, Rebecca Ferguson and Cher Lloyd.

Matt sings "She's Always A Woman" but has he done enough?

She's Always a Woman04/12/2010 - For his second song Matt strayed away from his usual song choice and sang "She's Always A Woman" from Billy Joel's 1977 album The Stranger. It wasn't best received by the judges with Simon going as far to say that "this was your worst song". Oooh nasty Simon! Come on people- Matt needs your votes!

It's the semi-final as Matt sings "You've Got The Love" for his first song

You've Got the Love04/12/2010 - Despite having been ill for the best part of this week, Matt was still able to turn it on again as he sang "You've Got The Love" to huge acclaim from the judges. Louis summed up our thought with "Girls like you, boys like you, and I think you could win the competition"- let's hope so! Click here to watch again and get voting!

Matt Cardle is through to the semi-finals as Wagner and Katie leave

28/11/2010 - Matt is safely through to next week and the semi-finals. It was a double eviction this week as Katie and Wagner were the unlucky two to be sent home.

Rock night part 2- Matt impresses with "Nights in White Satin"

Nights in White Satin27/11/2010 - Whereas in the first performance Matt was surrounded by dancers, for the second song he stripped it straight back and sang a fantastic version of The Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin". Watch the video here

Rock night part 1- Matt loves Rock 'n' Roll!

I love Rock 'n' Roll!27/11/2010 - For the first song tonight Matt performed "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" best known probably for the Joan Jett & the Blackhearts version

Watch the video here

Matt admits swearing at Wagner Carrilho

25/11/2010 - Speaking to X Magazine, Matt Cardle has admitted that he did have a "bust-up" (albeit verbal) with Wagner. It had been widely reported (and exaggerated) in the tabloids that something had happened between the two but this is the first time that Matt has openly spoken about it- "I just told him what I thought of him... yeah I swore at him. yeah I was rude to him, but he's rude to everyone he meets".

However, since the interview Matt has said that he thinks that "it's time to shut the hell up", he also added that when he had confronted Wagner he had been upset at losing Aiden and Paije- "If I offended anyone then I'm genuinely sorry but you get caught up in it."

Matt Cardle is safe but it's the end of the road for Paije Richardson

21/11/2010 - Another elimination night, another shock as Katie and Wagner survive again but Paije and Cher found themselves in the bottom two for the first time. Cher sang "Stay" (probably one of her best songs of the series) again whilst Paije sang Sam Brown's "Stop". For once it didn't go to deadlock as Cher received 3 votes and only Danni voted for Paije. It's really going to hit home now for Matt as he is the last remaining "boy" in the competition with Danni having lost Aiden last week and Paije tonight.

"Come Together" as we look at Matt in his vest!

Come Together sung bu Matt Cardle20/11/2010 - Well we got the song right but I don't think any of us were expecting the production that we saw tonight. Matt was stripped down to his white vest, surrounded by girls and gave a belting version of the Beatles' "Come Together".

Simon wasn't too impressed with his attire but we reckon the girls enjoyed it! Watch the video here

Beatles night tonight but what will Matt Cardle sing?

20/11/2010 - It was confirmed earlier in the week that tonight all the X-Factor acts will be performing songs by the Beatles but reports over what Matt will sing have been a little sketchy. The Sun wrote on Thursday that they had been leaked the song choices and Matt would be singing "Come Together" but we're not so convinced as it was done by Olly Murs last year- what fab4 song would you like to hear Matt sing tonight?

Shock eviction as early favourite Aiden is eliminated from the X-Factor

Aiden Grimshaw is eliminated14/11/2010 - Did we say there was controversy last week? Well double that for this weeks show as one of the early favourites, Aiden Grimshaw, was eliminated tonight.

Katie Waissel found herself in the bottom two for the fourth (FOURTH!) time this series but amazingly the judges didn't send her home and chose instead to let it go to deadlock. Aiden had received the least votes and so off he went- it just goes to show, no matter how much you like your act and think they'll win (i.e. Matt Cardle!) you still have to vote for them.

It's Elton John night so "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" from Matt

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road13/11/2010 - Full details to follow but watch Matt Cardle sing Elton John's "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" by clicking here or download now as a mp3 on iTunes


Matt Cardle misses his anonymity and his dog

11/11/2010 - Speaking in his most recent video diary, Matt has admitted that the cost of fame has come at a price as he misses his family, his dog and being able to go out for a pint with mates. He has also learnt that he has to be careful about what he does or says "in case someone puts it in the papers." However, he does feel that "the pluses way outweigh" all the negatives that appearing on the X-Factor have brought.

Controversy for Cheryl Cole as Treyc Cohen leaves the competition

07/11/2010 - Not a good night for Cheryl as she found her acts occupying both spots for the least amount of votes cast. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Katie Waissel found herself singing for survival again but this time it was against a fellow "Team Cheryl" member- Treyc Cohen. When the voting came, Cheryl refused to chose between her two acts and Cohen was sent packing losing by 2 votes to 1.

Matt Cardle sings "The First Time (Ever I Saw Your Face)" on fifth show

The First Time06/11/2010 - Matt is very much in the running again after tonight's performance. He may have been a little bit shaken after last week but tonight he pulled a blinder as he again sang his bootcamp song "The First Time (Ever I Saw Your Face)". Watch tonight's performance by clicking here or download now as an mp3 on iTunes

It's bye-bye Belle Amie as Katie Waissel survives another week

31/10/2010 - Simon is down to just one act after Belle Amie were eliminated having gained the fewest votes in the deadlock against Katie Waissel. Last week Simon was accused of focusing his efforts on the boy band "One Direction", looks like he'll be doing that for sure now but they are one of the bookies favourites (along with Matt of course!).

Matt takes on the Leona Lewis classic "Bleeding Love"

Bleeding Love30/10/2010 - It was a Halloween themed show tonight and Matt took on one of the previous X-Factor winners songs by sing Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love".

Watch the Bleeding Love video here or download now as an mp3 on iTunes

Matt is bemused by his hats popularity

27/10/2010 - Speaking in an interview with the X Magazine, Cardle thought that the attention his H&M hat has received was hilarious "It's only a hat... Why's everyone so obsessed with the hat?". One good thing is that his head won't be getting cold anytime soon as he also revealed that he had received numerous hats as presents since the show began from fans. The hat even has it's own twitter account apparently!

John Adeleye is elimated as Matt is safely through

24/10/2010 - You have to feel some sympathy for John Adeleye as he was without question one of the better singers in the competition but following some poor song choices (is Louis to question?) and lack of publicity he became the fifth act to leave the X Factor tonight. John found himself in the bottom two alongside Treyc Cohen but lost on judges votes by 3 to 1. Looks like the double evictions are over with for the time being.

Well Matt Cardle really did sing Britney and boy was it good!

Baby One More Time23/10/2010 - He said it was going to be cheesy but to be honest it was anything but. Sung acoustically at first with some backing track coming in for the second verse, Matt sat by himself with no gimmicks, no dancers and banged out possibly his best performance to date.

Matt to perform "Baby One More Time" tonight ??

Britney Spears23/10/2010 - Well if it's true then we have to agree that it's pretty cheesy! Originally a smash hit for Britney Spears way back in 1999 it was a number one in pretty much every country on earth (no smart-arse comments about the countless countries that it wasn't please!).

It's Guilty Pleasures week on X-Factor and Matt admitted that his Guilty Pleasure track is Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry, oh well not as bad as Britney...

20.40- update. WOW! how good was that, didn't even hear what Louis had to say as you couldn't hear him for the crowd, seriously impressed.

Matt Cardle on his song choice- "It's as cheesy as it gets, man"

not convinced by song choice21/10/2010 - Yup, that's Matt's opinion of his song choice for Saturday night. Speaking on his video diary he admitted that he wasn't too convinced by this weeks song choice but that he was still going to try and put in a good performance.

Speaking about last Saturday night he said "it was great, still pretty wobbly in places and still really nervous, but I'm starting to get a handle on that".

Storm Lee and Diva Fever are out of the X-Factor 2010

Diva Fever and Storm17/10/2010 - Storm Lee was the unfortunate act to find himself with the least amount of votes received and so was automatically ejected from the competition. It was left to Diva Fever and Belle Amie to battle it out but it turned out rather one-sided as Diva Fever received all 3 votes cast by the judges to send them home. Simon was saved having to choose between his own acts as his vote would have been meaningless, however, this now leaves him with only 2 acts remaining.

Matt sings "Just The Way You Are" by Bruno Mars

Just The Way You Are16/10/2010 - All the judges loved it and Louis was quick to say that if he released the song it would be an instant hit.

Matt Cardle is safe but its farewell to F.Y.D and Nicolo

FYD and Nicolo leave10/10/2010 - Well it was a surpise double eviction tonight and the unfortune acts to be sent home first were boyband F.Y.D. and Nicolo Festa.

Nicolo was the first to go as he received the least amount of votes from the public which left Katie Waissel to go head-to-head with F.Y.D. Surpisingly all the judges (except for Simon as he was their mentor) chose to send home the boys.

Matt sings "When Love Takes Over" for first live show

When Love Takes Over09/10/2010 - Matt blew us all away again with a fantastic rendition of David Guettas "When Love Takes Over". The original had Keely Rowland on vocals but Matt pulled off a fantastic performance to rival her. Click here to watch the video and let us know your thoughts! You can also download the performance now as an mp3 on iTunes

Also tonight we found that the rumours of a wildcard for each group was true and our final 12 turned into a final 16. Diva Fever, Wagner Caririlo, Paije Richardson and Treyc Cohen were the lucky 4 to find themselves back in the competition.

The Final 12 are revealed- is Matt Cardle through to the finals?

I am a really massive fan of you Matt and I have been since your first audition, I proper love the songs from SevenSummers, Find me there is the best I think.

"I'm very disappointed Matt's next single wont be out till Autumn. Maybe we should shout for it to be released sooner. He really should be being heard not put on hold for 8 months. Who agrees? Oh, Val, not sure who you think am I, but I don't think we know each other."

"So Matt's new single is not out till October. Does anyone else think that's far too long to wait? He deserves to be heard sooner. I'm not on twitter or face book but I did think maybe someone on one of them could start a campaign to get it released earlier, say in the summertime. Any takers?"

February 3, 2011 @ 10:57am

"Can't wait for your album to come out, your voice is brilliant and you look even better, glad you were found, you deserve it x"

Matt I just can't believe that you are not releasing your Album until 24 October, you must get at least a single out before then, we your fans don't want to wait that long.... this must be Simon Cowell because One Direction and Cher are both issuing their singles first both of which I for one won't be buying. PLEASE you have such a fantastic voice and your fans need an early release.... YOU could do this. Matt you WON the X Factor...."

"well done matt sorry but i got a bad feeling simon will leave you high and dry if i had won personally i would hang out with will young for a while and get some advice from him because he said when won he turned up to the offices and asked where's my desk as he was not going to sit back and let them run his career. i really think you need to get more control of things personally..also matt the a group called longpigs the album called THE SUN IS OUT OFTEN great album and i think you can do a great version of ON AND ON or maybe SHE SAID..lead singer since crispin hunt is now a songwriter/producer he worked with many florence and the machine cee-lo green ellie golding and many more. I really wish you a colorful career good matt"

"Congratulations on getting a nomination for the Brits award for 'when we collide'."

January 13, 2011 @ 10:13pm

"I think personally that the record company should get your album out as quick as they can and not leave for 8 months- strike whilst the iron is hot Matt. You are the most talented act to come out of X-Factor and i think they should capitalize on that and not just stick you on the X-Factor treadmill. Are you going to do any folk festivals? I think you would be perfect along side the other artists as a class act. X"

"I don't usually follow X Factor, but from the minute I tuned in and saw his audition, I just knew he would go far. A very talented man indeed, I look forward to seeing a lot more of him."

"Every time I hear your voice I am instantly happy, I love you loads and am wishing for a tweet one day. 89 days until I get to see you and I cant believe it! Already excited, cant imagine what I will be like when there is one week to go! LOVE YOU MATT. and don't forget Mr Grimshaw! Maiden rocks!"

"I loved you but thoroughly dislike this song- the lyrics romanticize violence - so although happy with you getting to No 1 - so sorry about this song choice "
