Marlisa wins X-Factor Australia..!

It was the night EVERYONE in Australia was on the edge of their seats, however Marlisa takes out the crown of the reality TV show...

At only 16 years old, the singer is the youngest to take out the title in the 5 years of the show. In a nail biting Grand final of The X-Factor (we actually have no nails left) the singer beat Dean Ray to release her winners single  Stand By You.

It's the first time that Ronan Keating has also won the show, by mentoring the singer, who certainly has come into her own over the last few weeks.
Marlisa will release her self-titled debut album on Friday November 7th, featuring re-recorded studio tracks of some of her incredible performances on the show including Nothing Else Matters, Titanium and Girl On Fire, as well as her winning single, Stand By You.

Australia’s premium songwriting duo, Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci aka DNA Songs wrote Stand By You. The pair have written numerous multi-platinum singles including Grammy award winner and global superstar Ricky Martin’s Come With Me, Jessica Mauboy’s Never Be The Same, and last year’s X Factor winner, Dami Im’s Alive which debuted at #1 on the ARIA charts and achieved Gold sales in the first week of release.

When asked about the win, Marlisa said, “My X Factor Journey has been incredible because of the beautiful people around me. To my loving family, thank you for standing by me through thick and thin, you are my rock and my strength... Thank you also for the rare opportunity that Sony Music Entertainment presents to ordinary Australians like me starting a career in music. Thank you to Ronan Keating for believing in my ability and nurturing my talent, I have enjoyed every single day of working with you.  And to all my supporters, thank you for getting behind me every single week, for I will not be where I am today without your support.”

Marlisa’s album track listing:
Stand By You
All By Myself
Hopelessly Devoted To You
Let It Go
Nothing Else Matters
Somewhere Over The Rainbow
Girl On Fire

The win will mean a life changing experience for the singer, however MASSIVE shout out to runner up Dean Ray, who we believe will still be a pop superstar in his own right.

Congratulations Marlisa from all at SnapCacklePop. A well deserved win. Stand By You is available on iTunes now..!
