Following the news that Brooks Wayhave left the show, we can announce that girl-group Four Of Diamonds will re-join the competition.
Four Of Diamonds made it through to Louis Walsh's Judge’s House in Ibiza this year and not only impressed him with their version of Lordes' Royals, but Nicole also named them as her favourite girl-group in the competition at their first Audition.
Speaking about his decision to bring them back, Louis, who is mentoring the groups, said: "I was really impressed with the girls at Judges’ Houses but only had three spots to fill for the Live Shows. At the time a lot of viewers were disappointed that I didn’t put the girls through, now that a place has opened up in my category, I’ve listened to the fans and am delighted to be bringing the girls back. They're a great girl group and I'm hoping will take me all the way to the final."
Speaking about their return to the show, Four Of Diamonds said: "We are so excited to be back on The X Factor, we’re really looking forward to performing live, working hard and showing everyone what we’re made of."
The girls had only been performing together as a group for a few weeks before they initially auditioned for the Judges. They describe their sound as a modern twist on the classic sixties style. Each of the girls hails from a different part of the UK; Caroline (19) is from London and has been studying Commercial Music at University; Lauren (21) is from Surrey and has been working part-time in a supermarket and teaching dance; Yasmin (17) from Manchester has been studying a music course and Sophia (19) from Birmingham has been studying Bio-Veterinary Science at University.
