While their more recent material points to the contrary, the above is the only word that can be used to describe JLS‘ run atop the UK Pop scene.
Now, before bidding adieu to that scene, the group returned to the ‘X Factor UK‘ to join this year’s contestants in performing their well loved number ‘Everybody In Love.’
How they fared?

As Pop groups go, they don’t get much bigger than JLS.
Since blazing onto the scene in 2008, the British-bred quad have achieved five UK #1 singles and sold a whopping 10 million records worldwide. 10 Million.
Yet, as the age-old adage goes, all good things must come to an end. This April saw Marvin, Aston, Oritse, and JB announce that they are going their separate ways after five years together.
As the guys gear up to bid adieu with a sell-out arena tour next month, we sat down with them for a candid chat.
Few stones were left unturned, with the group waxing honest about their reason for breaking-up, being the most successful Black UK band of all-time, and much more.
Additionally, with all eyes on what each member will do next, Aston revealed exclusively to That Grape Juice that he is currently working on a solo project.
So, what are you waiting for? Hit ‘PLAY’ to watch our interview with JLS!

Despite spawning many a musical mishap, little can take away from JLS‘ impact on the UK’s Pop scene during their short but sweet time at the top.
Now, after losing the bulk of their audience to rival group One Direction, the now inactive JLS saw their lead singer Aston Merrygold take to Balearic Island, with long time pal / Olympic gymnast Louis Smith.
Lighting up while catching a tan at the ‘Ocean Beach Club‘, the vocalist was snapped in the company of friends and fans one year after Smith picked up a silver medal at last year’s Olympics, and months after JLS announced their demise here.

Before JLS bid farewell to the world as a group, member Marvin Humes has assumed DJing and presenting duties over at Ashley Tabor’s ‘Capital FM‘…a role many agree he’s well suited for.
Now watch as he interviews fellow X Factor UK alum James Arthur at this year’s Capital FM Summertime Ball, which saw the ‘Impossible’ performer reveal that he’s eyeing September for the release of his debut album, and the pressure he’s placed on himself to ensure it scores big critically.

Hours after announcing their split, ‘Beat Again’ quartet made their way to the Alan Carr‘s ‘Chatty Man’ to share more on their reasons for breaking up.
Unfortunately for founding member Oritse Williams, addressing the group’s demise proved far too much for him to handle when he broke down in front of the show’s studio audience- comforted by the members he scouted and led to ‘X Factor UK’ glory.

Check out these shots of JLS frontman Aston Merrygold celebrating his 25th birthday party at Essex’s ‘Sugar Hut‘ last week.
Sans the group’s founding member Oritse, the ‘Desert’ singers hit the venue with a number of their closest pals, including British Olympian Louis Smith- almost a year after the group collaborated with Def Jam singer Elijah Blake on their fourth studio album, ‘Evolution’.
