Indeed, that’s how long JLS have been on the Pop radar and is also the duration of time it’s taken for them to embrace a more “current” sound. Still, as the saying goes, better late than not.
Tonight saw the quad return to the stage that birthed their careers, The X Factor. There, they showcased an edgier sound and look with new single ‘Hottest Girl In The World’ – the lead release from their forthcoming album ‘Evolution’ (due November 5th).
Have the boys actually progressed as a live act? The answer awaits below…
In being fair and unbias, it’s clear the group have had many a cheesier showing. However, the performance was still the pits given that all bar Aston weren’t doing much of anything, while Oritse was doing entirely too much. I mean, his “faux-MJ” (crotch-grab and all) was every flavour of cringe. When will these guys learn?
For their sake, it needs to be soon-ish, as ironically their success has seen many a boyband surface on the Brit-Pop scene, leaving them the ones at risk of fading away.
