Eoghan Karl Christopher Quigg (pronounced "Owen", born 12 July 1992) is a pop singer from Dungiven, Northern Ireland, who finished third in the fifth series of the British television music talent contest The X Factor in 2008. As a result of his X Factor success, Quigg was due to be signed by Simon Cowell, X Factor creator/producer and owner and CEO of Syco Records, but was instead signed to RCA after Cowell pulled out. Quigg released an eponymous studio album in 2009, to strongly negative reviews. Quigg competed in the Irish national selection for the chance to represent Ireland in 2014 at the Eurovision Song Contest but finished second.

Early life

Eoghan Quigg Eoghan Quigg Tour Dates amp Tickets

Eoghan Karl Christopher Quigg grew up in Dungiven, County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. Singing along to Disney cartoons since the age of two, Quigg found his voice when he was in class and told to stand up and sing as a punishment. To the teacher's surprise he sang well, which led to his becoming a choir boy. From then on he sang lead roles in school musicals, such as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Quigg auditioned for the talent show The X Factor in front of judges Simon Cowell, Dannii Minogue, Louis Walsh and Cheryl Cole in 2008. Quigg got past the "judges' houses" stage of the competition, and made it to the live shows in Cowell's 14–24 boys group, along with Scott Bruton and Austin Drage, both of whom were eliminated early in the live shows. On the first live show, Quigg sang "Imagine" and was highly praised by the judges. On the second live show (Michael Jackson week) he sang "Ben" which was also praised. On Big Band week Quigg sang "L-O-V-E" and received a standing ovation from the judges and the crowd. He made it to the semi-finals and after performances of "Year 3000" and "Does Your Mother Know" was voted through to the final.

Quigg appeared at the Cheerios Childline Concert at the Dublin O2 in Dublin on 16 December 2008, among acts including Enrique Iglesias, Anastasia and Irish boyband Boyzone. In December he also appeared on The Late Late Show where it was announced that Boyzone had invited him on their UK and Ireland Better Tour. After Alexandra Burke won the X Factor, Simon Cowell's Syco Music announced that it intended to sign Quigg, along with Burke, second place JLS, and fourth place Diana Vickers. On 15 January 2009 it was announced that Quigg had landed a record deal with Syco's parent company Sony BMG. The Sun later reported that Cowell had revoked his offer to Quigg and that he has been signed to RCA Records.

2009: Studio album

Quigg released his only album, titled Eoghan Quigg, on 6 April 2009. "28,000 Friends", the sole single from Quigg, peaked at no. 96 in the UK Singles Chart. The album charted at number 14 and spent 3 weeks in the top 100. It debuted at Number 1 on the Irish Albums Chart, and left the charts eight weeks later. The album met with what Matthew McCreary in The Independent described as a critical "savaging". Many reviewers, including Peter Robinson of The Guardian, called it the worst record ever made. Criticism was directed at its lack of original material, low production values and poor singing performance from Quigg. Following disappointing album sales, Quigg was dropped by RCA Records.
