X Factor 2012: Union J 'will focus on the vocals' this week

Union J (X Factor 2012)

X Factor stars Union J have said they hope to focus on the vocals this weekend.

This Saturday night is dancefloor fillers week, the boy band are hoping to go all out to show off their voices.

Saturday night saw the foursome win over the panel with a cover of Leona Lewis' Bleeding Love, after a shaky first live show performance earlier in the series.

Nicole Scherzinger said: “I hate to be the one to break it to you but you got everything right for you. It was beautiful and it was simple. You’re going to be selling out the O2 one day.”

Discussing their upcoming third live performance, the boys revealed this week: "We've just been focusing on rehearsing like mad. We're focusing on the vocals, this week we're really concentrating on nailing the vocals.

And despite obvious comparisons to the likes of The Wanted or One Direction, Union J admitted they had another group in mind when it came to acts they wanted to emulate.

They said: "When we were at our first x factor audition, we ere asked who we looked up to, and JJ said the Sugababes!"

In which case we can probably expect them to have another new member by the end of the series...


The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV1.

This weekend will see the remaining eleven finalists singing tracks with a Club Classics theme.
