The X Factor: The Band have revealed the line-up of the group hoping to follow in the footsteps of successful girl bands such as Little Mix.
Kellimarie is 17 years old and lives in Coventry. She has grown up in a family of performers, with her grandfather, mum and auntie all singing.
She is the youngest of five and found singing the best way to stand out amongst her brothers. She is currently studying song writing part-time in Birmingham and loves to write her own music.
Luena is 20 years old and lives in London. She auditioned for The X Factor in 2016 and made it all the way to 6CC. She sets herself the challenge of writing a song a day and has done so for the last two years.
She believes in the ‘Power of Music’ and goes into schools to speak to young people about positive mental health.
SEORSIA LEAGH JACK
Seorsia is 18 years old and lives in Ireland. Music has always been her true passion, she’s been singing since the age of two, and professionally since the age of 15 when she released her first song.

Halle is 19 years old and lives in London. She studied dance and musical theatre at Urdang Academy, and from a young age would always sing songs by Beyonce, Aaaliyah and Ciara.
