Sam Bailey dropped by Syco 14 months after winning ‘The X Factor UK’

Sam Bailey has been dropped by Simon Cowell’s label Syco, just 14 months after winning The X Factor UK. Bailey confirmed the news on her Twitter on Feb. 14.

Bailey wrote: “Hi guys yes it’s true I have parted ways with syco!! Don’t worry tho, I’m happy xx lots of exciting things happening xx”

I’m gutted by this news!

Sam Bailey was one of my favorites on this show. She really deserved more success. I guess getting pregnant right after winning, thus stalling momentum, really hurt her chances. What a shame.

Off to the independent artist circuit she goes. Hope the fans rally behind her for the rest of her career.
