Tulisa's last minute decision to change the line up of X Factor boy group The Risk at judges' last paid off tonight, as the group stormed their first ever performance on the live shows. All four of the judges were impressed by the four boys after their rendition of Plan B's She Said.
Kelly Rowland raved: "I am so happy that the four of you are here because what you bring to the table as individuals is really great but as a group I am so excited to watch you, Tulisa you’d better keep them in this competition. I am so excited!"
Louis Walsh added: "This is a risk that has so paid off. I love this band, everybody brings something, Charlie this is your time, you so deserve it. We have JLS, we had One Direction, now we have The Risk."
Take That star Gary Barlow said: "Boys, Tulisa, now this is a band right here. I am so pleased that it’s not all centred around Charlie. Everyone found their line and it was really well put together. Tulisa this is proper mentoring going on here and this is what we thought you’d bring to this competition, the edge, the cool the right song choice, boys you’ve got it all well done."
A rather (but understandably!) smug Tulisa told the boys: "This is why I made the decision that I made at judges houses. We’ve seen it tonight, we’ve seen the reaction and the performance, it was amazing. What different about you guys, there is no cheese with you, you are all credible musicians. Some of you write, you play, this is a credible boyband. Well done guys."
Tune in tomorrow night to see if the group make it through to the rest of the competition.
