X Factor 2012: District3 have chosen their own song this week, thank God!

District3 (X Factor 2012)

X Factor stars District3 have thankfully revealed that they've chosen their song for their performance this week!

The boys performed All For One hit I Swear for the panel last weekend, 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, Gary Barlow said: “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."

This week however the boys have made sure not to listen to Louis!

The group said: "Louis has been doing this for years and he’s got masses of experience, but this week, we’ve chosen our song and it’s a lot more energetic than you’ve seen before, so hopefully it will go down well.”

Speaking backstage at yesterday's soundcheck, the boys added: “Louis was happy to go with what we wanted to do this week. We don’t argue or anything, it’s a team.”
