X Factor boyband The Reason, who were eliminated from the competition at last year's judges' houses stage, have warned this year's hopefuls that the show isn't just about talent. Speaking to the Daily Star, the group - who release their debut single this week - said the acts weren't in control.
The group, made up Marc Higgins, Glen Vine, Scott White, and Nathan Rawlings also complained when they were forced to change their song at judges' houses at the last minute, meaning they had to perform a new track to Simon Cowell without rehearsals.
Glenn said: “We were angry. We came to realise X Factor is not just about talent and singing, it’s about making a TV show.”
And with this year's bootcamp stages kicking off next week, Marc added: “The acts need to know they’re not in control, the producers are.”
TellyMix has followed The Reason ever since their first audition last year, where they were origianlly called The WhiteVine RawHigs. The group describe themselves as a bridge between Take That and JLS, adding that they “put their own unique spin on the ‘boyband’ genre with their a capella harmonies.”
They impressed the panel in London with a cover of Cheryl Cole's 'Promise This'.
Despite being knocked out before the live shows, the group have managed to sign to a label and their debut single 'Take It All' is out on iTunes now.
