Two time Ivor Novello Award Winner

Jörgen also has penned winning songs for “The X Factor”, the music competition created by Simon Cowell. The final of the second season was broadcast on British television on December 17th, 2005. Each of the three finalists sang up to four songs including “That’s My Goal”, co-written by Jörgen. Shayne Ward was crowned winner and the single was released four days later.

By selling more than 313,000 copies on its first day, and 742,000 in four days, it is the fourth fastest-selling single in UK history, capped only by Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind”, Will Young’s “Evergreen” and Gareth Gates’ ”Unchained Melody”. ”That’s My Goal” became that year’s Christmas Number One, staying at the top spot for four consecutive weeks. It went on selling more than 1.10 million copies.

On May 25th, 2006, Jörgen, with his, “That’s My Goal” received the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for the Best Selling British Single of 2005. Twelve months later he would have yet another one in his hands.

It became a Billboard Hot 100 #1 with Kelly Clarkson four years earlier. In 2006, “A Moment Like This” was chosen as the winning song also of The X Factor season three. On the evening of December 16th, Leona Lewis was announced winner and her debut single was available for download immediately after the finals. Thirty minutes later, it had sold 50,000 copies.

Selling more than 570,000 copies in its first week, the single outsold the rest of the entire Top 40 combined. It became that year’s Christmas Number One, holding the #1 position for four weeks.

On May 24th, 2007, Jörgen was back on the stage collecting his second consecutive Ivor Novello Award, this time for the Best Selling British Single of 2006.


Working almost around the clock since his break-through in 1999 with Britney Spears’ “Sometimes”, Jörgen in 2007 decided to take some time-off from writing music. The hiatus would last for almost two years, though during this period he wrote songs for both Céline Dion and the British-Irish girl group “The Saturdays”.
