Still without a name, X Factor's new boy band are looking forward to experimenting with different styles of music at the live shows.

As the new boys on the block, this group was put together by the judges during Bootcamp, and Louis Walsh saw enough potential to choose them as one of his final three groups at the Judges' Houses stage of the competition.

Barclay Beales, Tom Mann, Chris Leonard, James Graham, Casey Johnson, Jake Sims, Charlie Jones and Reece Bibby said it feels "amazing" to reach the live shows.

"It's the best feeling in the world as we didn't think we were going through," they said. "He [Louis] said to us 'Boys it's not good news'. But he believed in us and here we are now."

But what tricks will the group pull out the bag for the live shows?

"We're looking forward to experimenting," they continued. "Every time we've rehearsed and performed, it's been exciting because we've only just been put together.

"We cannot wait to learn new songs and to have more time to practice. There are so many things we can do between us in the group, from playing the piano and guitar to rapping."

Showing off their new groomed look, there's no doubt the boys won't be short of female attention!

In fact, they're all for a makeover, but are slightly worried about what might happen to their hair.

"We're looking forward to it, until they say hair! They know what they're doing though. They're going to make us look handsome... hopefully!"

The boys will join Blonde Electra and Only The Young in the groups category.

X Factor continues Saturday night on ITV1.
