Alex & Sierra are a popular music duo from America, which consists of Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton. They are best known as the winner of the third and final season of music competition television series, The X Factor US. They were the first and only music group to have ever won the show, and they were mentored by Simon Cowell, who is a renowned television personality.
In 2014, the music duo released its debut album “It’s About Us.” After working together for more than three years, they broke up in 2017 and branch out into their own solo careers.
Alex & Sierra started their musical career in 2013 when they auditioned for the music television competition, The X Factor. They sang a sultry version of Britney Spears‘ “Toxic” and wowed the judges. They reached the top forty and got Simon Cowell as their mentor.
In one of the rounds, they sang their own version of “You’re The One That I Want.” The judges praised the duo for their effort. At the same time, Alex & Sierra composed the song “little do you know,” which was an instant hit. When they were in the top 12, the duo performed a stripped-down version of the song “Blurred Lines.” The judges praised their performance, calling it “original” and “unique.”
The couple sang the classical song “Addicted to Love,” which earned them negative reviews from the judges as well as the audience. They bounced back and performed on the One Direction hit song “Best Song Ever,” which the judges called it their best performance. Their version of the song charted at the top 40 on the iTunes chart.
Later, the duo performed on several hit songs, including “I Knew You Were Trouble,” “Say My Name,” and “Say Something,” which became the first song from the US X Factor television show to hit number one on the US iTunes charts. In the semi-finals of the show, the audience chose the song “Little Talks” for them to perform. They nailed it, and the judges said that they might be looking at the winners.
For the finals, Alex & Sierra performed on five songs, including “song to win,” “Give Me Love,” “Bleeding Love,” “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” and “Say Something.” They received a mixed response for their performances and was declared the winner of the season on December 19, 2013. Later, it was revealed that the duo received the most number of public votes every week of the competition.
After winning the music competition, they collaborated with several famous musicians and artists, including John Shanks, Jason Mraz, Julian Bunetta, and John Legend. In 2014, they released their debut single, “Scarecrow.” In the same year, the duo released their first music album “It’s About Us,” which consists of hit songs like “Little Do You Know,” “Just Kids,” “Bumper Cars,” and others. Their fourth promotional single “Here We Go” peaked at number four on the iTunes single chart.
