X Factor 2018 contestants

NO LABELS
The first act of The X Factor 2018 is boy band No Labels made up of Ollie, Jake, Jordan and Ben. They think there's a "really big gap" for boy bands. They say of their name: "We all got our own individual stamp and we didn't want to get put in one single genre." Can the group's cover of Justin Timberlake's Suit and Tie win over the judges?

He previously sang for Simon Cowell on Pop Idol and tells him tonight: "I’ve waited 17 years to sing back in front of you to show you I’ve still got it, I’ve still got the same passion as before.” Danny sings Jennifer Hudson's And I’m Telling You at his audition.
