Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has her work cut out with The X Factor groups. Ahead of this weekend’s show, they’ve all not only been given a fashion make-over, but they’ve changed names too.

Familiarise yourself with their new names and ALL the goss you need:

4th Impact: formerly 4th Power

(Thames/Syco)



(Thames/Syco)

 

The band are: Mylene (23), Irene (25), Almira (27) and Celina (19). The band are four sisters who have grown up singing and dancing together.

In their first audition:

They performed Jessie J’s Bang Bang

How would you describe your own style?

We are very fierce, energetic, powerful performers with angelic harmonies. In terms of our fashion style, it is more of a girly teeny-bop look, with lots of colour and a bit of hip hop.

What makes you stand out from everyone else in your category?

I think the fact that we are sisters makes us stand out and we also perform with a lot of passion, fun and love. We always sing from our hearts.

Alien Uncovered: formerly Alien

In their first audition:

They performed The Black Eyed Peas’ Pump It

Where do you see yourselves in five years time?

We want to go international, touring and performing at Madison Square Gardens and Wembley. We want to spread the Alien message across all continents…

Describe your mentor in three words?

Current, iconic, cool – she could definitely be an Alien!





BEKLN Mile: formerly BEKLN

The band are: Baison (31), Emmanuel (27), Kadeem (22), Lawrence (22) and Nathanael (29).They have been together for six months.

In their first audition:

They performed James Bay’s Hold Back The River

How would you describe your own style?

We get lost in the music so we always allow the music to take over and we leave our hearts on stage whenever we perform. We have a lot of energy, and perform with emotion and conviction, and our style represents that.





Melody Stone: formerly Silver Tone

The band are: Keshia (32), Nicole (22), Rachel-Yvonne (31), Wynter (24) and Santhy (26). They have been together for six months.

In their first audition:

They performed Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water

Fantasy dinner party – which five music industry figures dead or alive would you invite?

Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran and Michael Jackson.

What would it mean to get to the live shows?

It would be great to know Cheryl believed in us and believed that the UK and the rest of the world needs to hear our voices.





New Kings Order: formerly The First Kings

New Kings Order (ITV Pictures)

 

The band are: Cardan (22), Aaron (25), Calum (23), Josh (21) and Hemz (25). The band have been together since April 2015

In their first audition:

The band performed Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk

Describe the toughest point in the competition so far? The Judges’ Houses because Cardan lost his voice, so we really had to pull together. Cardan usually directs everything, so it really tested the rest of us.

What makes you stand out from everyone else in your category?

Definitely the diversity in the group and the fact that we sing and dance, and always put on a performance with every number we do. Our image is just as important as the music – we always concentrate on how we look and ensure it fits with what we’re doing.





Reggie n Bollie: formerly Menn on Point

REGGIE N BOLLIE (ITV PIctures)



REGGIE N BOLLIE (ITV PIctures)

 

The band are: Reggie (31) and Bollie (29). The duo have been together for three and a half years

In their first audition:

The band performed their own song, Turn It Up

Which one artist in the industry most inspires you and why?

Labyrinth as he combines being a producer and a songwriter. We love watching him on stage. He seems very humble.

How well do you know everyone else in the category and have you bonded with anyone in particular?

We are really close to New Kings Order and also Seann Miley Moore, Max Stone and Che Chesterman. Anton also asked us to do a video for his nephew as he was a fan of ours.
