"Evergreen" is a pop song, co-written by Jörgen Elofsson, Per Magnusson and David Kreuger, and originally recorded by Irish boy band Westlife. The song appears on their album World of Our Own, and was released as a single only in the Philippines, where it reached number three.

In 2002, the song was chosen to be the winner's single for the first series of Pop Idol and was recorded by the three finalists: Will Young, Gareth Gates and Darius Danesh. During the final, the song was performed by both Young and Gates.

Young went on to win the show, and released "Evergreen" as a double A-side single, along with "Anything Is Possible", which was also recorded by the final three and performed by the final two. The song was later included on Young's debut album, From Now On (2002). Gates' version of the song was also released as a B-side to his single, "Unchained Melody".

"Evergreen" went straight to the number one spot in the UK Singles Chart and stayed there for three consecutive weeks, before being knocked off the top spot by Gates' debut single, "Unchained Melody". It was the best-selling song of 2002 and was also the fastest-selling debut in UK chart history, selling 403,027 copies on its day of release and over 1.1 million copies by the end of the week. The song went on to sell over 1.79 million copies and in 2012 it appeared 14th in the official list of the all-time best-selling singles in the UK.

It was the biggest selling single of the 21st century until 2015, when it was overtaken by "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. Along with "Happy", it is also one of only eight songs to be certified triple Platinum in the UK-the others being Elton John's "Candle in the Wind 1997", Aqua's "Barbie Girl", Cher's "Believe", Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk" featuring Bruno Mars, Clean Bandit's "Rather Be" featuring Jess Glynne and "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran.
