X Factor 2012: Union J had everything but the vocals on the live shows (VIDEO)

Union J (X Factor 2012)

Union J struggled on The X Factor 2012 live shows tonight, with criticism from the judges.

The group performed Queen's Don't Stop Me Now during tonight's first live show, but seemed to struggle with the huge song.

Fortunately, a rather loud backing track drowned out the boys as their first ever live performance together came to end... with a stage packed full of scantily clad girls.

Nicole said: "I know it was hard but the song choice wasn't winning it, I don't know if you guys were having a good time up there."

Gary Barlow said: "I had to agree, Louis, you have destroyed their night, it was so dated. "

Tulisa said: "Guys, it pains me to say this, but I just wasn't feeling that. I don't think you were at your full potential. I didn't agree with the song choice, the vocals were missing."

Louis Walsh said: "I didn't think the song choice was great, I wanted to test the boys.

"I wasn't playing it safe, let's hope people at home vote for you."

The X Factor 2012 live shows continue tomorrow night on ITV1 at 8PM with the first results show, featuring performances from Ne-Yo and Leona Lewis.
