The talent show appeared to be on the decline over the years but it was still very popular at its peak, attracting more than 14,000,000 viewers Saturday night.
The broadcast was the first to be made in 2004. Crowing Steve Brookstein (now 52) is the winner.
The show’s win gave the winners a Christmas number one and a contract with Cowell.
Dalton Harris was the last winner of The X Factor in 2018.
