X Factor 2012: Mia and The Moon sing in memory of a dead pigeon

Mia and The Moon

Singing sister Mia and the Moon perform for the X Factor judges this weekend in memory of a dead pigeon.

The duo - make up of sisters Laura and Mary-Ann - tell Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack that they are singing in memory of a pet pigeon they once had.

Mary-Ann reveals to Caroline: “Our mum has loved animals since she was tiny and we’ve always had random pets coming in and out. Anything from horses, to dogs, to birds of prey, to rodents. Anything and everything.”

Laura adds: “A pigeon called Pickle.”

Mary-Ann: “Do you remember when Pickle and Leo the kitten played together? Really sad story though, because Pickle went outside one day, on his own, and I think he went up to another cat and thought that cat would be just as friendly, and that was the end of his life. He died.”

Laura claims: “We’re doing this for Pickle.”

The girls sing Shackles by Mary Mary for the judges, but will they make of it all?!

The Xtra Factor airs on Saturday, August 25 at 9:15PM on ITV2.

Also on this week's Xtra Factor, Gary finds himself getting touchy feely with one excited hopeful!
