Irish boyband “Out of the Blue” auditioned on the XFactor over the weekend. They were called “5th Base” but XFactor producers got them to change their name before they met the judges.

This isn't the 1st time we've met the lads – the last time they were in 98FM in December, they were called “Level 5”. They had just performed at the Childline concert and funnily enough we asked them if they'd consider going on the XFactor.

They said “We got together through auditions held at the Academy. Dean was on the XFactor before the same year as Mary Byrne with another boyband. We got a no after being seen by the judges because we really only went for the laugh. Then it started getting serious but we made a wrong song choice and that ended it”.
