The 'I Found You' band have posted messages of best wishes after Obama was re-elected US President.

Lawson and The Wanted have both congratulated US President Barack Obama for winning a second term in the US election last night (6th November).

Democrat Obama beat Republican nominee Mitt Romney by 303 electoral college votes to the latter's 203, and both UK band's have sent messages of congratulations after his victory.

"A massive congratulations to @BarackObama after winning his second term in office :)," The Wanted's Siva Kaneswaran tweeted this morning after hearing the results.

Lawson bassist Ryan Fletcher was similarly excited and posted: "Congratulations to Obama. Amazing outcome for America!"

Stars including Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry have all sent messages of congratulations today after the outcome of this year's US election.

'Taking Over Me' four-piece Lawson wrapped their 'Hometowns' tour last night with a show in London and hailed the concert as the "best thing" they have ever done as a band.

"Last night was the best thing we've done in this band so far!" guitarist Joel Peat wrote, while singer Andy Brown posted: "Now the tour is over just can't wait for next year… that tour is going to be amazing."

Lawson are set to embark on a 17-date UK and Ireland tour starting in February 2013.
