The competition is getting real now on
The X Factor: The Band, as we now have our fully-formed girl band.
After a shock twist that saw Virginia invited back into the competition by Nicole Scherzinger despite being rejected first time at the arena audition, our girl group is now a six-piece.
So who are the lucky girls chosen to take a further step in the competition and will they end up being the next big thing in the world of pop music?
Here’s the confirmed line-up of The X Factor: The Band’s first girl group…
Halle from London sang Waterfalls by girlband TLC for her audition with Simon and Nicole.
She studied dance and musical theatre at Urdang Academy, and from a young age would always sing songs by Beyonce, Aaaliyah and Ciara.
Dancing was her first love, and she’d love to bring this aspect to the girl band.

Seorsia is from County Laois in Ireland and sang Little Mix hit Touch for her audition at Simon’s Syco offices in London.
Music has always been her true passion, she’s been singing since the age of two, and professionally since the age of 15 when she released her first song.
Since then she has continued to write music, with one of her songs having 200,000 streams on Spotify.
A singer/ songwriter from Essex, Jess performed an original composition, I Love, which impressed Simon, Nicole and the industry pros in her audition.
She is currently studying music and has started writing original songs a couple of years ago.
In 2017 she won ITV’s The Voice Kids with Pixie Lott mentoring her, and since then she has wanted to take her singing career even further.

Virginia has a large family and says her older sister is the most important figure in her life and shares her love of performing.
She is currently studying for her A Levels and loves to paint as well as sing, but her lifetime ambition is to simply ‘be happy’. Despite not having any formal vocal training, she has always sung and performed since the age of eight.
