Boy Band Gets Judges Singing Along to ‘Uptown Funk’ on The X Factor UK 2015 (VIDEO)
Boy band The First Kings sang “Uptown Funk” and got the judges singing along in their seats on The X Factor UK 2015!
The guys got things started with a really melodramatic, cinematic opening video, and then picked things up with the entrance of dancers who helped get the crowd hyped up. The guys are outstanding live performers, but I wasn’t feeling the vocal. Part of it had to do with the audio quality, as this sounded really tinny and hollow. But I also think it’s an issue of song choice, since the guys were doing so much onstage that I think it hurt their vocal. Still, I thought the overall performance was exciting, and it was a blast to see Cheryl, Rita and Nick get so into it, particularly Cheryl, who was singing along practically the entire time! The First Kings seriously have something here. Watch the audition video below:
