JLS: "The Risk's X Factor Exit Is A Travesty"

9 November 2011, 16:16

The 'Take A Chance On Me' singers discuss their feelings on this weekend's double X Factor elimination.

JLS have commented on boy band The Risk's shock exit from The X Factor this weekend, describing the group's elimination as the show's "biggest travesty".

Oritse Williams said he couldn't believe the band received the lowest number of votes from the public and insisted they had given one of the strongest performances during Saturday's X Factor.

"My heart goes out for them," Oritse told OK magazine. "For me that was one of the biggest travesties I've seen on the show.

"They were one of the best performers on Saturday night by far and that was the best performance for me that they've done, so for them to go out, I'm personally gutted for them."

The 'One Shot' singers also discussed how it felt returning to the X Factor this past weekend, where they performed their new single 'Take A Chance On Me'.

"The weirdest thing for me was standing on that stage and seeing a completely different judging panel."

Oritse added: "It's always amazing to go back and pay homage but it's just a different show."

The group will perform as part of the second day line-up of Capital FM's Jingle Bell Ball this December alongside headliner Jessie J and other artists including One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande and Wretch 32.

JLS released 'Take A Chance On Me' this week and third album 'Jukebox' is scheduled to follow on 14th November.
