Alex & Sierra’s mentor, judge Simon Cowell, couldn’t seem more thrilled with his team’s popularity: “Alex and Sierra are number 1 again on iTunes! Thanks to everyone who has bought it,” he tweeted December 12.
With the remaining X Factor contestants gearing up for next week’s two-part finale, Alex & Sierra’s market success would seem to indicate a likely win for the couple. They’re the team to beat according to two of the couple’s fellow X Factor contestants.
“I think Alex & Sierra are definitely one of the front-runners of this competition,” Colton Pack of X Factor trio Restless Road told Wetpaint Entertainment in an exclusive interview. “They have such a unique sound and there’s no one like them out there right now. America really loves them and loves their story.”
