XFactor 2012: Union J talk 'crazy week' after getting signed

Union J (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Union J have admitted they've had a crazy week after signing a record deal with Sony Music.

The boys finished fourth in the competition earlier this month and it looks like it's going to set them up for a good career.

Lead singer Jaymi revealed: "It's been a crazy week, the dream was to get a record deal and now we've got a deal."

He explained: "We are going to Sony today to sort out all the contracts. It's amazing."

Right now the boys are back at home, and the group's George Shelley confessed it was nice to be back to normal life.

He said: "It's been nice to have some family time, we've been in a bubble for three months. "

But it won't be long before the group are back on tour with their fellow finalists, with Jaymi adding: "We're going to be spending like six weeks together so we're looking forward to the reunion."

Union J are the third of this year's acts to be officially signed, following winner James Arthur (obviously) and Ella Henderson, who have also both been signed to Sony's labels.

Speaking about her planned debut album at the weekend, Ella said: “Hopefully this time next year I’ll show people why I’m here.”

She continued: “I’m so excited to go into the studio and do what I’ve always wanted to do.

“I’ve written stuff already but I can’t wait to write new stuff. I’ve not written all the way through the period I was on The X Factor and it unlocked so many emotions I’ve never experienced before, it’s going to be very exciting.”
