It was a tough road this season for all of The X Factor contestants and after months of waiting we finally have a Season 3 winner. The $1 million prize and all the added bonuses went to Alex & Sierra, which means Jeff Gutt and Carlito Olivero were sent home packing.

Jeff’s had a great run of it this year, however. The single dad from Detroit, last remaining member of Kelly Rowland’s Over 25 crew, and returning X Factor contestant proved cutting him from Season 2’s Boot Camp was a major mistake. From his moving audition performance of “Creep” by Radiohead to his duet with John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls, Jeff’s proven he’s a rocker worth listening to.
