About Olly Murs
Olly Murs rose to fame through The X Factor in 2009. Mentored by pop impresario Simon Cowell during his time on the show, the hotly tipped Murs won many fans for his performances of Don’t Stop Me Now, We Can Work It Out and Twist and Shout.
Standout performances that set Olly Murs apart from his competitors included the duet of Angels with Robbie Williams and his rendition of Stevie Wonder’s Superstition. The latter prompted Simon Cowell’s response, "the easiest 'yes' I've ever given“.
Despite being a favourite to win, Murs lost out to Joe McElderry. However, this didn’t stop the singing sensation.
Olly Murs’ music success
The Essex-born star went on to release his first album in 2010 with Simon Cowell’s label Syco Music. The fan base he earned on the X Factor proved they were loyal giving Murs his first Top 5 album in the UK charts. The self-titled debut peaked at No.2.
The following year he managed to do one better by landing his first UK No.1 with In Case You Didn’t Know. The success continued in 2012 with his third album, Right Place Right Time. The album became his second consecutive No.1.
During this time, the singer was busy spending time with One Direction and Robbie Williams. Murs opened for One Direction during their Up All Night Tour in 2012. The following year he teamed up with Robbie Williams by providing support for the singer on his Take The Crown stadium tour during 2013.
The singer-songwriter was also busy writing new material for his fourth album, Never Been Better, which was released in November 2014.
Along with his success as a musician, Murs has accomplished a successful career as a presenter. Most notably, he returned to The X Factor where he presented the spin-off show The Xtra Factor during 2011 and 2012.
