Biography

Martin Hoberg Hedegaard (born October 9, 1992), also known as simply Martin, is a young Danish singer who recently won the first Danish series of the talent show The X Factor on March 28, 2008. The fact that Martin is just 15 years old makes him the youngest winner of an X Factor series in the history of the show, after the original UK version of the show lowered the age minimum from 16 to 14 in 2007. He sings with a distinctive nasal voice.

Martin was born in the small town Ørum in central Jutland, Denmark, and has spent his whole life there with his mother Gitta, his father Peder, and his two older brothers Anders and Simon. Before participating in X Factor, he took singing lessons, and had a minor role in a school musical. His primary idols are Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Queen and Michael Bublé.

Through the X Factor shows, Martin has continuously been praised by the three X Factor judges. During the auditions, one of the judges, his future mentor Remee, rose from his chair to shake his hand “before he became a superstar”. Later during the live shows, Martin became a national idol after singing songs such as ‘Kiss From A Rose’, ‘Rock With You’ and ‘Somebody To Love’. In addition he has also been praised internationally by Simon Cowell and Queen amongst others. In the final, Martin beat the 23-year-old contestant Laura Arensbak Kjærgaard, with whom he had made good friends.

Martin’s debut album, Show The World, was released on 30th May 2008. For now he has released two singles:
