Daytona Beach, FL - Local singing stars Alex & Sierra win the reality TV talent show “The X-Factor”.
Alex Kinsey of New Smyrna Beach and Sierra Deaton of Orlando won a recording contract with Syco/Sony Music during Thursday night’s finale aired on the FOX channel.
They and the other 3 acts that made the finals performed in a 2-hour finals show Wednesday night before the winner was announced.
The show aired on the FOX channel not only throughout the United States but in 190 countries as well.
A panel of judges led by former American Idol judge Simon Cowell and singers Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland & Paulina Rubio helped decide the winner, as did the viewing public through a variety of methods, including text voting, vote by phone and via Facebook.
Due to Alex & Sierra being from the area, the City of Daytona Beach held a party on both nights at the Daytona Beach Bandshell which was shown live at various points during the show.
As part of the show, FOX producers also went around the Daytona Beach area filming the story of Alex & Sierra. They are a real-life couple who met in Daytona Beach around 2 years ago.
