The Wanted Praised By Ellen DeGeneres After Award Win: "I Think You're Fantastic" - Video

11 January 2013, 16:55

The 'I Found You' stars have thanked Ellen for helping launch their music career in America.

The Wanted thanked Ellen DeGeneres in person today (11th January) for supporting their career over the past year, fresh from dedicating an a cappella performance of 'Afternoon Delight' to the chatshow host at this week's People's Choice Awards 2013.

The 'Glad You Came' singers picked up Favourite Breakthrough Artist this past Wednesday (9th January) at the awards show, and sang a verse of the song as a tribute to The Ellen Show host, crediting Ellen for helping launch them in America.

"We saw you sat there, and it was a lot down to you, you gave us our first break on TV," Max George told Ellen, after the band surprised her on the show today.

"I think it's been a very good year for us, but the whole time we never forgot that you took a bit of a risk," Jay McGuiness added, before Ellen refuted their suggestion and said she had always believed they would be a big success.

"It was not that big of a risk because you all are very talented and I could tell that you were going to go places and I'm happy to be a part of helping you in any way that I can," Ellen replied. "I think you all are fantastic and what a year it's been.

"So congratulations and here's to another year better than that, so that you again dedicate every speech to me!" Ellen added.

The Wanted are currently working on music for their third studio album, expected to drop later this year.
