ak-Su have won "The X Factor".

The quartet were overcome with emotion when host Dermot O'Leary revealed they had beaten Grace Davies to take the crown at the ExCel in London on Sunday (03.12.17) evening.

The band members - which comprise Mustafa, Ashley, Jamaal and Myles - thanked their family and friends for their support on hearing the news, while their mentor, Simon Cowell, was delighted for the "gentlemen".

Simon said: "Congratulations to Grace, and obviously, to you guys, Rak-Su, you are gentlemen, you are stars. And to everyone who voted, thank you."

For the first time, both finalists sang original songs in the last show of the series, as they had done throughout the process, with Grace performing "Nothing But Words", and "Too Young", and Rak-Su impressing with their tracks "Touché" and "Mona Lisa".
