Union J To Replace One Direction?

tumblr_mb2tbeZqRb1rhuoyso1_500


Simon Cowell is out to sabotage X Factor favorites Union J and stop them becoming more popular than One Direction, reports Daily Star. Louis Walsh has said that Cowell has deliberately gone cold on Union J to fix the show. Louis ‘He knows Union J are a threat to One Direction so he’s not going to say much about them.’

Walsh, Union J’s mentor, suspects that Cowell is out to wreck their chances by promoting other acts to win the show. But, Simon insistersthere was room in the charts for both 1D and the Union J lads, George Shelley, 19, JJ Hamblett, 24, Jaymi Hensley, 22, and Josh Cuthbert, 20.

Walsh, who also mentors the boyband District 3 in this year’s show, said: ‘There’s always room for a new boyband if they are good enough and they work hard. I think we have got two great boybands. It’s not just Union J, District 3 have come back into the race too.’

The prize for winning the ITV1 show is a £1million record contract with his label, Syco Music. But Cowell will not want a rival band competing for One Direction’s fan base and denting their earning potential.

    Only Liam and Harry can sing in tune. Zayn is always either sounds muffled or just bad and Louis is just the weakest link and Niall border lines average. Their harmonies are boring as well. They just sing loud on top of each other and girls go crazy. Justin can sing, but he’s no R Kelly. The boy needs a new vocal teacher because looks won’t help him survive long. Thank god he plays instruments.

    I would hardly call 1D harmonies amazing. Even their judges houses on X factor was dull. They haven’t got that Boys II men harmonies on point. And their music is cheesy. I voted for them on X Factor because they made the show fun but X factor is over now and if 1D don’t switch it up quick, they are gonna be just another boy band in 2-4 years, especially as this generations taste of music is always evolving.

    A lot, NOT ALL, but a lot of their “fans” like them cuz the only one they know the name of (george sth) looks like the “love child” of larry & all that.
    Whatever.

    Your kidding right? Liam isn’t the beset singer in one direction because there isn’t one. Just because they all have different sounds doesn’t make one better than the other. If we are being honest the person with biggest vocal range is Harry, although liam still has a great range. Liam would never break away from 1D, even if he wanted to he would never do it. I don’t understand what 1D songs your listening too, but from what I can tell we are listening to two different bands. The band I listen to has incredible harmonies and all of them are individually talented. Plus I’d be shocked if someone ever managed to repace 1D at the moment, they are too big.

    Liam is clearly the best singer in one direction, but none of their songs show off his incredible range. He should be singing solo. Justin isn’t a strong singer and if you watch many videos, I think Liam is much better than him. The edge Justin has is better music and he’s actually trying to mature his sound while 1D will keep making the same thing.

    Union J is not good vocally. They have a lot of work to do. Their best singer is Jaymi Hensley BY FAR. He has no pitch issues and his voice is nice, clear, and consistent.

    There’s no point in Simon being angry because 1D won’t last very long. Liam will be the breakout star and his full talent will finally be shown.

    Wow, you sound like the epitome of stupid. Harry has serious pitch issues. And there isn’t a best singer? OH PLEASE. Liam’s vocals surpass the other 4 put together. Louis can’t even sing. I have no idea why he even got put in the group.

    1d can sing? they have the most incredibly average voices. liam is slightly better than the rest but thats about it. justin can not only sing well, with soul and r&b, but he can play every instrument and dance. 1d jumps around and sings pre pubescent songs. just as every boy band does. boy bands suck. get them all out of here haha

    I genuinely prefer District 3, they have better voices and much better harmonies. Union J are only this popular mainly because of George Shelley. I do like them though, but they’ll never be as big as One Direction.

    I don’t know much about Union J , but pushing bands back is so lame… in the end all they wanna do (producers and mgrs) is milk the cow.. they don’t give a damn about the artists…
