“I’d like to thank the man upstairs for taking care of me first and foremost; my family, all the country music fans, God bless you. Thank you so very much for all the votes and this is the best day of my life.”

Those were Tate Stevens’ first words immediately after hearing he was the winner of X-Factor and the recipient of a hefty $5-million recording contract. Even without winning the show, all of the judges throughout the season have agreed that there was no way he wouldn’t have a future in the music industry.

From his first audition when he performed Anything Goes by Randy Houser, audiences fell in love with his humility and Southern charm, yet every performance had him command the stage. Though LA had a meltdown at the beginning after hearing he was the mentor for the over 25s, Tate always delivered for LA week after week. After performing “Dead or Alive” in the top 13, it wasn’t surprising to hear that he was America’s number one and clearly he stayed that way until tonight.

In the final minutes of the show, X-Factor’s past contestants came together on the stage with Tate Stevens as he sang “Tomorrow.” It’s been an emotional journey for everyone and it was nice to see everyone jamming along with the winner.

Here’s the video:

    I hope Mary still have some feelings for Bash

      Even if she does, I think you’re best off to give up hope on that one. Her and Francis aren’t going away. They got married. It’s over for Mash.

    I really think Mary has lost her mind… Loved the Bash scenes with Rowan, but I think Bash and Mary will eventually end up together. It seemed like it was hinted over and over. He’s one of the obstacles of their marriage that keeps it fragile (as mentioned in the carriage scene) and we know he’ll be back in the castle soon enough with a new love interest (sure to make Mary jeaaaaalous) lol

    The Duchess falling out of the window was one of the funniest things ever. I adore this show. It was a great episode. As for Bash thinking that Francis is trying to kill him I think losing Mary has distorted his rational thought.
