The boy band perform their single 'Glad You Came' on the hit chat show.
The Wanted made their first ever American TV performance today (10th January) on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
The boy band performed a rendition of their hit single 'Glad You Came' and took over the set as they made their way into the audience.
Siva Kaneswaran took one fan by the hand and began to sing his verse to her before Nathan Sykes followed suit and gave one audience member a big hug.
Max climaxed the song and changed the words at the end to say "Ellen, we're glad we came" as he put his arm around the host.
Following the performance the crowd erupted into screams before Ellen asked the boy band where they got the reputation as "the bad boys of England" from, to which they all laughed before Max offered an explanation.
"I think it's to do with [that] we like to party and I think with America and there being so many beautiful women about – we're going to have a good time," he said.
The band took to their Twitter account a short while ago to say how pleased they were with the reaction they have received from the performance.
"So pleased you all love our @TheEllenSHow performance! love u all," they tweeted
Meanwhile, The Wanted are now set to head out on their first ever US tour which kicks off on the 17th January.
