X Factor 2011: Boy group Brooklyn win over the judges in Wales

Brooklyn X Factor

X Factor hopefuls Brooklyn managed to scrape their way through to bootcamp on last night's Xtra Factor, despite a close call after they left the judges split. Billy Humphreys with band mates, Jaymi, Jason and Lee in the end received three yeses as they auditioned in Cardiff.

Speaking before their audition, the four piece said: "Destiny's Child picked their name out of the bible, so we took an Atlas, opened up the index, put our finger in with our eyes closed and picked Bristol... but we chose Brooklyn right below it."

They added: "We've known each for since young kids but the band has been together for about four months."

Launching into a performance of Cee Lo Green's Forget You, the response from the panel was luke warm at best.

Asking for another song, the boys opted for an acapella rendition of Jason Derulo's In My Head.

The group split the panel however, with [tag]Kelly Rowland[/tag] and [tag]Tulisa Contostavlos[/tag] arguing

"It's a lot to work on," Kelly said.

"It was a bit pitchy at times, but that's the beauty of being in a group," Tulisa replied.

But Kelly hit back: "You're only as strong as your weakest link."

Tulisa continued: "I don't think the weakest link is that weak it can't be worked on."

With the girls clearly in disagreement, it was a tense vote, started by Kelly who said: "I'm looking for more, it's a no guys."

With yeses from both Louis and Tulisa, it was [tag]Gary Barlow[/tag] who was left with the deciding vote, in the end putting the [tag]Brooklyn[/tag] through on the promise they'd work hard to iron out the problems.
