Union J

X Factor's Union J have snubbed both Louis Walsh and JLS' Ortise's management deals.

The boy band, who have signed a record deal with Sony Music, are now with Crown Management.

The boys - George, Jaymi, JJ and Josh - revealed this week that they had spoken to plenty of people and reckon they've made the right decision.

They said: "We've met loads of managers and we love Louis, we did meet JLS' Ortise, it was great to get feedback from someone who's been in a boyband.

"We've made a decision and we're now with Crown management."

Meanwhile, the group confessed they were excited for the X Factor live tour, despite having only had Christmas Day and Boxing Day off since the end of the show.

The group said: " We're excited to meet everyone again. We've just been to rehearsals to see all the stage and what we've got planned. It's gong to be amazing to perform arenas."

Union J went on: "We're in the studio today and recording the first single. It's what we wanted to do for years and years.

"We're excited to get in there and record a hit song, extremely nervous but excited."
