And they're off!
Amelia Lily is the first of last year's X Factor contestants to sign a record deal - which is sure to spark at least a bit of rage in Frankie Cocozza.
After making her cry in a car park during the competition, he got booted off the show when he bragged about drug use, and she was allowed back in.
Now she's signed a £500,000 deal as the first artist to be signed to Xenomania's record label - the songwriters who have written tracks for Girls Aloud and The Gossip.
It's not just for one album - they reckon that the pink-haired singer has three records in her.
A source told the Mirror:
"Amelia will be the perfect popstar and has fantastic hit-makers who were behind some of The Saturdays' and Girls Aloud's best songs. It'll be a great combination."
Right now it sounds like she won't be disappearing without a trace like the majority of contestants… but what's the betting we'll actually remember her in five years time?
She rightly predicted her biggest competition last year.
