The second season of THE X FACTOR came to an exciting conclusion tonight as Tate Stevens was crowned the winner during a special live two-hour season finale on FOX.

Stevens, 37, who was mentored by L.A. Reid, emerged as America's choice and the winner of the coveted THE X FACTOR title and a $5 million recording contract with Sony Music. In addition, this year's winner will also receive production and creative support to develop, create, record and shoot his first original track and music video. The prize culminates with the winner's video premiering as a Pepsi commercial during the live telecast of the "55th Annual GRAMMY Awards(R)."

The star-studded two-night event featured performances from One Direction - the global sensation that rose to fame on the U.K. version of "The X Factor" - and world-renowned rapper Pitbull, as well as a series of duets performed last night by special guests paired up with THE X FACTOR finalists, including country superstar LeAnn Rimes with Carly Rose Sonenclar, pop singer and THE X FACTOR judge Demi Lovato with Fifth Harmony and country music group Little Big Town with Tate Stevens.
