What year? Came 9th in the 7th series, 2010
Best moment? Singing a moody version of Mad World during the live shows
Where are they now? After remaining quiet for a few years, Aiden has been busy recording new music, posting pictures to his Twitter of album covers and of himself spending time in the studio. He shared this pic with fellow X Factor star Matt Cardle!
