X Factor 2012: District3 say sorry for 'letting their fans down'

District3 (X Factor 2012)

District3 have said sorry to their fans after their latest live performance on The X Factor.

The boys performed All For One hit I Swear for the panel tonight, and split the judges.

The group were seen being unsure of their song choice in the VT before their performance, admitting: "We were worried about a boyband being a boyband song, and coming across cheesy."

When it came to the comments, Nicole Scherzinger said: "I'm going to be a little tough on you here, I need to see something else from you boys. I need you to rub oil all over your bodies and then sing the song like you mean it... any volunteers, girls?"

Gary Barlow added: "Boys, I think you’ve had a really bad night tonight. The harmonies were off, when you watch this back you’ll be disappointed.

"The song choice was very dated and I think in the battle of the boybands, Union J have taken it tonight.

Despite positive remarks from Tulisa, and obviously mentor Louis, the group seem to be letting Gary and Nicole's comments to get to them.

They tweeted: "Sorry we let u guys down. Hopefully we can prove ourselves next week if we get voted to stay in x"

Speaking on Xtra Factor, the boy added: "We respect Gary's comments, and I hope we'll be fine tomorrow."
