X Factor group Concept are hoping to win over Louis Walsh at Judges' Houses and they don't want their famous connection to play any part in his decision.

Karim Newton, Matt Goodenough, Nathan Gittens, Scott Hicks and Ben Selley - all 20 years of age - have known each other since they were in primary school.

Concept: Ben (far right).

Ben is also the cousin of One Direction's Harry Styles, and while the boys would love to emulate 1D's success, they want to be praised for their own talents.

"We want to be told that we're good for us," they said. "We don't want to be known as Harry Styles' cousin's band, we want to be known as Concept.

"We just mentioned it to Louis and he didn't even realise. It makes us feel like we're good for what we do."

Concept impressed the judges with their room audition and they were even better at Bootcamp when Simon Cowell declared: "We've been waiting for you guys to have a moment... You just had it."

With Tulisa helping Louis to make his difficult decision in Bermuda, Concept are glad the N-Dubz singer was chosen as a guest judge.

"Tulisa came from a band quite similar to us," said Concept. "They came from nothing, and grew up together and worked hard for years to get where they were. For someone with her experience to see a band that have come from similar roots to her, we think she'll really appreciate that."
