8 incredibly talented artists. 1 big band. X Factor UK 11 alumni has decided to split after 11 months of being brought together by Simon and the crew. Such a same, these group of lads had the most potential to be successful post X Factor UK but none of the labels were willing to take at risk at them. To be fair, even without a label, their one and only single “Love Me So” charted at no. 31 on UK Top 40 Charts and no. 12 on UK Mid-Week Charts. Their single album also occupied the no. 1 album sales for two consecutive weeks. But then again, none of this matter if none of the labels are willing to bet on them.
Recently, they held their last and final gig together as a band and it was both an emotional and outstanding send off performance from the boys. Of course, they performed their original songs “Love Me So” and “The One That Got Away”, and covered a multiple number of songs that surprisingly suited them.
Check out the performances below:
ED SHEERAN – SING!
THE KOOKS – NAIVE
G.R.L – UGLY HEART
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE – MIRROS
*This is their song during the judges home. You may want to check that out. They actually proved how good they are during this week last year. To think they were just put together all of a sudden.
BEATLES – LET IT BE/HEY JUDE
*This is their breakout moment during their X Factor UK run. After weeks of questions and nonbelievers digging them down, they pulled this incredible ballad out of nowhere and proved how well they do with ballads. The harmonies were on point.
*James Graham is incredibly amazing! He is the one who sings those high notes and he was flawless! Even his verses sounded amazing. This isn’t the perfect version of this song but I must say I like their cover. There is something compelling with their version that I particularly like.
TAYLOR SWIFT – BLANK SPACE
*This is the time when most of them starts cracking. Aww. *tears*
COLDPLAY – FIX YOU/STEREO KICKS – LOVE ME SO (RAP ACOUSTIC)
SNOW PATROL – RUN
*This is what they sang during the 6 chair challenge week and that is also a night before they were all put together. You can check their performance online whih they sound quite good. They performed this again during the Top 5 week of X Factor UK and again they improved a lot and were so good. This has been their staple go to song!! And this is the last performance they did on their Final Concert. Very nostalgic!
