The X Factor 2012 auditions came to an end over the weekend and before we had a chance to feel sad over the first stage of the competition being over, we were introduced to two boybands who not only impressed the judges, but also charmed us!

Which made us think, are Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, who all auditioned separately on the X Factor and were then put together at bootcamp, at risk of loosing their X Factor pop prince crowns?

During Sunday night's show, the audience were introduced to Jaymi, Josh and JJ, otherwise known as Triple J. With their boyband looks, they were already a hit with the audience and they hadn't even sung!

After performing their rendition of Rihanna's 'We Found Love', the three teen lads were welcomed by nothing but positive comments from the judges. Tulisa said: "This is what boybands are about"

Whilst guest judge Rita Ora added: "Good Looking lads. I think the girls will love you."

Giving his verdict on the band, Gary Barlow could be heard saying: "It's not just about looking good. You've got to sound great and you really sounded great."

However, they weren't the only ones who wow the judges with their performance as boy trio GMD3 also got positive feedback from the judges after they sand Boys II Men classic, 'I'll Make Love To You'.

What did you think of GMD3's audition? (ITV Pictures)

Labelling their audition as terrific, Gary said: "I’ve got a feeling you’re going to need to get used to this. That really was a terrific audition. Individually your voices are excellent but when you blend together it’s like listening to one sound. It is absolutely gorgeous, it’s so exciting to see this. It's a massive yes from me.”

Making a comparison with JLS, Louis Walsh added: "You all rehearsed yourselves, prepared yourselves, you guys were ready and all you needed was an opportunity and this is your opportunity.”

Tulisa also offered praise, tellingthe boys: "Not only are you a good looking band your vocals are so on point it’s like you’re ready to go.”
