With The X Factor all wrapped up for another year, we take a look at this year's biggest performances from the series.

Based on online hits and shares, here are the performances that have garnered the most interest (whether good or bad) these past six months.

Biggest audition

Christian Burrows left the judges emotional with his self-penned original song at the auditions, with the heartbreaking performance notching up 6.5 million views to date.


Biggest bootcamp performance

We only saw brief glimpses of some of the acts at bootcamp but of those we did see, Saara proved the the biggest hit with her (15 second) take on On The Radio.


Biggest six chair challenge performance

Christian Burrows and Matt Terry's sing off was the highlight of the Six Chair Challenge, with over two million watching the pair fight it out for a seat at judges houses' only for them to both to end up going through.


Biggest judges' houses performance

Saara's cover of Winner Takes It All at judges' houses left Robbie Williams feeling cold, but it got Saara through to the live shows.


Biggest live shows performance

Saara's performances from the live shows dominated online each week, no doubt thanks to her fans across the world. The biggest performance was It's Oh So Quiet, with 2.6 million views to date.


Biggest final performance

The biggest of the final performances again comes from Saara and her duet with Adam Lambert on Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. Note however that neither 5 After Midnight nor Matt Terry's duets have been uploaded online due to rights issues.
