Meanwhile on Simon Cowell's other big UK show, 25-year-old magician Richard Jones became the tenth champion of Britain's Got Talent.
X-citement grew at some familiar faces
It was all change at the X Factor in May. Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger returned to the judging panel after Nick Grimshaw, Cheryl and Rita Ora all left. Dermot O'Leary was also back, as filming began for the news series of the show he had left a year earlier.
Euro-oh no again
It was another poor year for the British act at Eurovision. Joe and Jake were a dismal 24th in Stockholm.
Babs on the big screen
Plans were announced for a film about the life of former Carry On and Eastenders actress Dame Barbara Windsor. Produced to coincide with her 80th birthday, it'll be released in 2017.
