X Factor losers show why they are winning

Previous X Factor losers have come top of a poll of the hardest working musicians in the business.
JLS are doing well despite not winning the X Factor
Previous X Factor losers have shown that winning isn't everything with their efforts to crack the music industry being recognised by a music industry body.

Pop wannabe Olly Murs and R&B sensation JLS came joint-first in a poll of the hardest working musicians in the music business, which was conducted by PRS For Music.

Olly has defied all odds to secure himself as a serious artist and has put in extra work as a presenter on the X Factor.

JLS meanwhile, have been working non-stop, transforming themselves into one of the biggest and most popular UK R&B artists today.

Barney Hooper from PRS for Music said: "Performing live and going on tour are fundamental to any artist and is a great way for them to engage with their fans.

"Congratulations to both JLS and Olly Murs and all the songwriters who they have worked with to create the music that so many people are enjoying."

Music hard man Liam Gallagher was also named as one of the hardest working musicians.

The rock star, who is known for his no nonsense approach to life, love and music, was bestowed with the top ten place after what has been a extremely successful year for his band Beady Eye.
