JLS

JLS (an initialism of Jack the Lad Swing) are an English boy band consisting of members Aston Merrygold, Oritsé Williams, J.B. Gill and Marvin Humes. They originally signed to Tracklacers production company New Track City and then went on to become runners-up of the fifth series of ITV reality talent show The X Factor in 2008, coming second to Alexandra Burke.

Following their appearance on The X Factor, JLS signed to Epic Records, later playing a gig at Curzon Green infront of 200 fans. Their first two singles "Beat Again" and "Everybody in Love" both went to number one on the UK Singles Chart. The band's self-titled debut album was released on 9 November 2009, and has since sold over one million copies in the UK. JLS won the awards for British Breakthrough and British Single ("Beat Again") at the 2010 BRIT Awards. They also won several awards at the Mobo awards for Best song for "Beat Again" in 2009 and also Best Newcomer in the same year. In 2010 they won the MOBO Awards for Best UK act and Best Album. They also went on to win their fifth MOBO Award in 2012 by winning Best Video for "Do You Feel What I Feel".

In 2010, JLS signed an American record deal with Jive Records, and released "Everybody in Love" as their debut U.S. single, but it failed to chart. "The Club Is Alive", the lead single from their second studio album, was released in the UK in July 2010, and earned the band their third number-one on the UK Singles Chart. Their single "Love You More", the official single for Children in Need in 2010, was the group's fourth UK number-one. Their single "She Makes Me Wanna" featuring Dev was their fifth UK number one. JLS have sold more than 10 million records worldwide.
