X Factor 2012: Union J tease "amazing song" for love and heartbreak week

Union J (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Union J have revealed they've got an "amazing song" lined up for this weekend's show.

The boys - formed of trio Triple J and soloist George Shelley - didn't get off to the best of starts last week.

Even mentor Louis Walsh admitted that they didn't manage to tackle the big song - Queen's Don't Stop Me Now - he had given them.

Speaking to the Journal, the boys admitted: “We had so much fun with the song. It wasn’t necessarily the right song for us, but I suppose that the comments from the judges have just made us push for success even more and work harder for the upcoming weeks."

This weekend is a love and heartbreak theme for the performances, and Union J have been putting their all into the series.

“We have got an amazing song prepared and are so excited to be able to perform it," the group explained.

They teased: "We are really focusing on making sure that before we walk on to that stage on Saturday night we have prepared ourselves as much as we can, and are 100 per cent happy with everything we have done.

“We have been rehearsing non-stop.”

And the boys were up early this morning to squeeze in more time in rehearsals.

The group's George tweeted: "Just about to run through this weeks performance again! Can't wait! George X"

And Josh added to their over 240,000 followers online: "Sound check.....mic check mic check! Really excited for tommorow now.... Joshy x"

The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday night on ITV1, with the results show following on Sunday night with performances from Taylor Swift and Rebecca Ferguson.
