Not First, or Second When Harry Styles was thrown together with four other teens and given a new return pass into the competition on The X Factor , there were no guarantees that this blending of unknown and untested voices would produce a successful venture or even ear-pleasing music. The challenges they faced were clear from the outset, as they didn’t even win the competition or come close to winning it. Matt Cardle claimed the top honors and is enjoying a successful career as a singer and songwriter, and soul singer Rebecca Ferguson finished a spot ahead of them in second. Styles and his bandmates did their best to work out the kinks of finding a way to unite their voices. They began with a cover of “Torn” by Natalie Imbruglia, and by the time the live shows arrived, they ramped up their performances and generated rave reviews

for nailing Coldplay’s “Viva LaVida” and “My LifeWould SuckWithout You” by Kelly Clarkson.
