I can't quite work out if Union J are practising their very best mean 'n' moody boyband pouts as they arrive for 'X Factor' rehearsals (in which case, Gorgeous George needs to work on his) or if they've just heard the whispers that Simon Cowell is out to sabotage their chances of winning this year's series.
Louis told the Daily Star: "[Simon] knows Union J are a threat to One Direction so he’s not going to say much about them.”
To be honest, I'm not quite seeing Louis' logic here seeing as whoever wins 'The X Factor' will be signed up to Simon's record label so won't he be making a pot load of cash from them anyway? Louis? Yes? No?
And we all know what a fickle ol' place the world of pop is but new-kids-on-the-pop-block Union J have a long way to go before they get within an inch of One Direction's global success, even if they do have better wardrobes.
Could it be that Louis' just not happy that Simon's favourites aren't in his category?
Sounds like it.
"And there was also James Arthur. They were his three.”
What? Not Rylan?
