X Factor 2012: Gary Barlow LOVES new boyband Rough Copy – but they’ve been booted because of Kazeem Ajobe’s visa!

Tonight sees the very last of this year’s X Factor auditions and one act who just squeezed onto the series at the last minute was hunky boyband Rough Copy.

The band consists of Joey , 25, electrical engineer, Sterling, 24, teaching assistant and Kas, 22, Carpenter. Speaking backstage to producers, Sterling revealed that he thinks their act will appeal to female viewers, saying:

“I think ladies and young girls are all going to love our music!”

Dermot O’Leary asked:

“Are you ready for all these girls to know your names?”

The hopeful singer replied:

“Well I need to make some more space in my phone book. In 2 years’ time when I have at least 4 numbers 1’s, 1 Brit award, 1 MOBO award. It’s all games and fun, but it’s serious. There is not a group out there like us, it’s time for a change.”

The lads then took to the stage and delivered a pretty darn great rendition of ‘Use Somebody’ by Kings of Leon. The audience seemed to like it, as did the judges.

Judges’ Comments:

Gary: Guys you were born to be on the stage. And I think you are going to be an absolute nightmare to mentor.

Kas: So that would be you yeah?

Gary: I hope not!

Tulisa: Guys, thank you. You have made my day. You come up there and you are entertainers. I thought it was a brilliant audition….I could mentor you.

Rita: So listen, I need to tell you lot something. Don’t ever change, because what you are doing right now, is what everyone loves.

Tune into the X Factor tonight to see Rough Cut’s full audition. We reported back in August that the lads had made it through to bootcamp but later got eliminated, as one of their members had some visa issues. You can read the full story here.
