After a whirlwind search across four weeks for Britain’s next best band, The X Factor has crowned their winner as girl group, Real Like You!
The final aired on Sunday, December 15th and saw the girls go up against boy band Unwritten Rule. Although it was tough competition, Real Like You blew the boys out of the water with their original song, ‘Be Like Them’.
One of the key vocalists of the band is Luena Martinez. So, let’s get to know Luena better here, before she blows up to singing superstar status!
Who is Luena?
Luena Martinez is a 20-year-old singer from East Finchley in North London.
As she explained before her first audition in Simon Cowell’s offices, Luena has been singing since the age of 3 and before entering X Factor: The Band, was gigging professionally.
But the new competition offered Luena the chance to form and be a key member in a major new pop group. And she was a perfect fit!
Luena blew away the judges in her initial audition, singing her own song. In the arena auditions, she once again impressed with a cover of NSYNC’s ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’.

Who are Luena’s parents?
Not much is known about Luena’s family as of yet.
The X Factor fans were only introduced to her mother while she was on the show, who is clearly one of Luena’s biggest fans. But only her mother was introduced.
Luena has not mentioned her father anywhere and nothing is known about him. Nothing is known about whether Luena has siblings either.
