XFactor 2012: Lucy Spraggan an online hit

Lucy Spraggan (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Lucy Spraggan has moved to be an online hit, becoming the UK's fourth biggest video trend this year.

The singer impressed the judges back at her first audition with her own track, Beer Fear.

Making the live shows, Lucy continued to notch up the views before she was ruled out of the show with illness.

But despite only spending a few weeks in the competition, Lucy has still proved the most popular of this year's finalists.

And perhaps rather embarrassingly, X Factor reject '£1 Fish Man' rated just behind, and ahead of all of the other acts that did make it through to the live shows.

Unsurprisingly, Psy's Gangnam Style topped the list of video trends, with Kony 2012 a close second after its viral spread earlier in the year.

In more good news for Simon Cowell however, Britain's Got Talent runners up Charlotte and Jonathan also made the list with their first audition.

They, like Lucy, proved more popular than the Queen's surprise role in the Olympian opening ceremony which concluded the list.
