X Factor judge Louis Walsh has claimed that GMD3 are better than One Direction.
The trio made the X Factor 2012 live shows on Sunday night, as Louis iced his finalists.
GMD3 join Union J and MK1 in the finals, which start on Saturday night.
Chatting to Caroline Flack on Xtra Factor, Louis said of the boys: "From the very first audition I knew they were something special. They were just naturally amazing vocals."
And quizzed on the comparisons between the group and former X Factor stars One Direction, Louis added: "Vocally, yes [they are better than One Direction]. They are world class."
However the boys revealed today that they would soon be changing their name.
Their current moniker - made up from their initials - was compared to a disease by Sharon Osbourne at judges' houses.
The group's new name will be revealed on Saturday night's first live show on ITV1.
