The X Factor 2011 countdown: 2 days to go! A look back at series six...

Jedward

With just two days to go until The X Factor is back on our screens, our countdown of the previous series continues with series six! Back in 2009, Geordie singer Joe McElderry won the show, beating off competition from the likes of Olly Murs and Stacey Solomon in a final watched by nearly 19 million viewers...

But despite the trio topping the votes, none of our top moments from the year came from any of them (although we can't get enough of Stacey's performances!)

Danyl Johnson

Like a lot of viewers, and Cheryl Cole, we couldn't really stand Danyl on the show. However his audition demonstrates a key change to the format made in 2009: A live audience. The first auditions in Glasgow were scrapped halfway through, with Simon deciding to axe to the 'hotel room'-style try outs in favour of auditions in front of a 3,000 strong crowd at concert venues.

Jedward do Britney

Duo Jedward are, somehow, still by far the most talked about stars to come out of The X Factor 2009. From knocking Lucie Jones out of the competition (BOO!) to accusations of miming during the live shows, controversy has followed the pair since their first appearance at the Glasgow auditions.

Since finishing sixth on the show, the pair have become "multi millionaires" thanks to advertising deals, a Eurovision attempt and - starting tonight - being Celebrity Big Brother house housemates.

Check out the pair's wacky performance of Britney below...
