The 'Hottest Girl In The World' four-piece say they look up to Robbie as one of the country's best performers.

JLS have praised Robbie Williams for being the "ultimate pop star" and have hailed the longtime signer for "raising the bar" for live performance in the UK.

The 'She Makes Me Wanna' stars spoke out about Take That star Robbie while asked about their new album 'Evolution' competing against Robbie's latest offering 'Take The Crown' this week, and say it will be a "tough battle".

"Robbie is back to his best," JLS told The Sun this week. "It'll be a tough battle but it can only go to 1-1.

"He's the ultimate pop star. He's just so natural," Marvin Humes went  on to say. "You only had to see him on The X Factor the other week.

"He raises the bar for the level of performance in this country."

When asked which of them is the most like 'Candy' singer Robbie, the boys named band member JB Gill.

Marvin added: "He's a loose cannon. He's up, he's down. You just don't know what you're going to get with him."

JLS launched their new album 'Evolution' this week fresh from their success with lead single 'Hottest Girl In The World'.
