Union J are JJ (24), George Shelley (19), Josh Cuthbert (20), Jaymi Hensley (22) from Newmarket, Bristol, Ascot and Luton. Or as they put it: “We’re four normal down to earth guys who love to sing.”
Jaymi, Josh and JJ auditioned for The X Factor as a three piece called Triple J and got through to Bootcamp. After Rough Copy left the show Louis asked them to come back to the competition for Judges Houses and he added 19 year-old George Shelley to the group. They then became Union J, saying “We’re so happy to be a four piece. The group feels so right together, it feels like we’ve been together for years!”
The lads showcased their trademark heavenly harmonies and smoking good looks in a performance after performance. From the perfect pop of “I’ll Be There” by The Jackson Five to “Beneath You’re Beautiful” by Emeli Sande and Labrinth (accompanied by a gospel choir in shimmering pyro extravaganza) – these boys left the audience begging for more!
