Soul Group Wows Judges With James Bay Cover on The X Factor UK 2015 (VIDEO)

Self-described “soul/R&B” group BEKLN wowed the judges with their cover of James Bay’s “Hold Back the River” on The X Factor UK 2015!

This may have been the best audition from any group so far this season. Seriously, these are the kinds of vocal harmonies a lot of groups could only dream about being able to pull off. My only issue is that this didn’t feel all that current. Sure, they can sing, but can they sell? But the judges will have plenty of time to come to a decision in Boot Camp. But for right now, they ABSOLUTELY deserved to go through. This was very impressive, and very deserving of a spot at Boot Camp, and perhaps beyond. I could easily see them making the Six-Chair Challenge, at least. Watch BEKLN’s audition video below:
