'Irish JLS' boygroup Element set to wow the X Factor judges in Liverpool

Louis Walsh

A boygroup who have been described as the "Irish JLS" have been tipped to wow the new X Factor judges in Liverpool later this week. Five-piece boy group Element will be flying into the city in a hope of becoming the first group ever to win the show.

JLS previously finished in second place, while last year One Direction - formed at the show's bootcamp stages - made it to third place.

Element will hope to go all the way when they start their journey on Wednesday in front of new panellists Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh (That's one yes there already then!)

But already there's claims of a fix after it was revealed that one of the members of the hip-hop group is Brook Wright, son of one of Louis Walsh's pals - who also owns a record label, the Daily Mail report.

One boygroup, the Mend, have already been kicked out of the show after it was revealed they were being mentored by a former Take That manager.

Element members Brook Wright, Karl Bowe, Dean Anthony, Simon Anthony and Kevin Johnston - who describe the likes of Justin Timberlake, Usher, and Bruno Mars as their main musical influences - have already been tipped for success however.

Louis Walsh said: "Judging on what we've seen so far, there could be an Irish winner this year. You can't rule anything out."
