Rough Copy will be back as a trio on The X Factor 2013 live shows, it's been confirmed.

The group is made up of Kaz, Sterling and Joey, having performed together for five years.

Rough Copy made it through to Judges’ Houses last year but had to pull out when Kaz was unable to travel due to visa issues. They re-entered the competition this year in the hope that Kaz’s visa issues could be resolved.

However when it looked like they wouldn’t be sorted in time for this year’s Judges’ Houses with Gary Barlow in New York, the group decided to continue as a duo with Kaz leaving the competition.

Kaz was visibly emotional and proud when Sterling and Joey secured their seat and a place in Gary’s final 6 at Bootcamp.

After winning a place in the live shows on the basis of their strong performance at Judges’ Houses as a duo, Gary felt that the band would be better if they were reunited as a three piece for live shows.

Kazeem was recently told that he was being given a second chance to perform with the boys as a trio in the live shows much to his and his band-mates’ delight.

As well pursuing their own dream of musical stardom, the boys also teach the art of music to underprivileged youngsters. Having grown up in difficult areas themselves, the boys hope to show young people that a better life can be achieved if they are prepared to work hard and follow their dreams.
