On The Edge have become the latest group to make The X Factor 2012 bootcamp tonight.

The five lads from Dublin told the judges they have been together for seven months, and hoped to become as big as One Direction and The Wanted.

"We have the talent, we love to do vocal harmonies," the group explained. "We pride ourselves on it. The songs we come out with and the harmonies we deliver are unexpected.

"Being on The X Factor it'd be great to get some female attention, it's not what we're looking for, but we'll take it!"

Auditioning for the show in Liverpool, the group took to the stage singing Olly Murs' hit Dance With Me Tonight.

"The ladies like you! The harmonies were all great, you all sounded amazing together," Tulisa remarked.

"I thought you looked like one of those tribute bands when you came out," Gary started, but added: "I actually really enjoyed the audition, the precision in the harmonies was superb."

Guest judge Geri Halliwell said: "I really, really liked you, I loved it."

Despite being a boy group from Ireland, Louis Walsh wasn't too sure.

"It was a bit dated, I'm not jumping up and down about you," he said. "But five guys from Ireland... it's worked before! I see potential."
