Louisa Johnson’s winners single FLOPS in worst X Factor debut ever

With her pop star good looks and amazing voice, we had an inkling that Louisa Johnson was going to be in the X Factor competition for the long haul.

However, as most of us are fully aware, winning the show does not guarantee success. In fact, the majority of winners and runners up of the talent contest don't actually become the break out stars that the show promises to make them. 

Could this be the case for our Louisa?

Louisa's first winners single, Forever Young, has become the worst X Factor debut track in the history of the show. 

The single entered the UK charts at number nine making it the lowest chart level entry of any previous contestant. 

Despite winning the competition with 53.9% of the vote last Saturday, Louisa's Bob Dylan cover only racked up a measly 39,000. 

By comparison, last years winner Ben Haenow's winners single went on to sell 214,000 and became 2014's Christmas number one. 

While this may not sound like a terrible outcome (she's still in the top ten!), in X Factor terms this is pretty much a flop. 

The single has debuted at an even lower chart position in the Irish charts coming in at number 12. 

Many are speculating that the success of Justin Bieber's Purpose album may be costing Louisa a higher chart position.

The Biebs is smashing records by holding the first and second chart spots at the same time as well as holding three of the top five chart positions in the UK.
