‘We did it!’ Rak-Su thank fans after X Factor win

Simon Cowell called Rak-Su ‘stars’ after they won the competition.

Rak-Su have thanked fans after winning the X Factor 2017, saying: “WE FLIPPING DID IT.”

The singers beat Grace Davies to be crowned winners of the ITV singing competition during Sunday night’s final.

Shortly afterwards they posted a photograph of themselves in a huddle on Instagram, writing: “OMFG THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH WE FLIPPING DID IT THANK YOH THANK OU THANK YOU!!!!!!!

“WE LOVE YOU ALL.”

The I’m Feeling You singers looked stunned as host Dermot O’Leary announced they had won the show, before hugging each other and their mentor Simon Cowell.

They are the first boy band to take the X Factor title.

An emotional Cowell called Rak-Su “gentlemen”, saying: “You are stars.”

He also praised runner-up Davies, saying: “Congratulations to Grace who is really an outstanding, outstanding artist.”

The band’s win capped a star-studded final that included performances from Pink, Sam Smith and Little Mix, who won X Factor themselves in 2011.

Rak-Su have now released Dimelo, their winner’s duet with Wyclef Jean and Naughty Boy, which they first performed during Saturday night’s show.
