"One Direction" hunk Harry Styles' cousin Ben Selley is planning to follow in the successful footsteps of his brother. Selley and his bandmates from the band "Concept" have recently auditioned for the "The X Factor" and have impressed the judges with their talent. In 2010, Harry and his boy band "One Direction" catapulted to success after they first appeared on "The X Factor."
British singer Harry Styles from the band One Direction arrives to attend the presentation of the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2014 collection during the London Fashion Week.
"Concept" is a boy band just like "One Direction" and has a bunch of good looking men with amazing vocals. It consists of all 20-year-old boys whose names are Karim Newton, Matt Goodenough, Nathan Gittens, Scott Dicks and Harry's cousin Ben. In the latest episode of the talent show's United Kingdom's edition, the boys gave a power packed performance on an acoustic version of Labrinth's "Earthquake" and yes they even played the guitar.
Their spell bounding performance brought a smile on the lips of Cheryl, Mel B, Simon and Louis. They showered them with impressive comments.
"Obviously you have worked hard at this and worked out the harmonies, the vibe and the style of it all. I would like to see it again," said former Spice Girl Mel B.
"I like the fact that you're all friends and it's a genuine thing," added Cheryl Cole.
The band members earlier told the judges that they had known each other since quite a long time and have practically grown up together. "The X Factor" producers approached the boys to appear on the reality show some time back via email after seeing their singling videos on YouTube. However, the boys were not mentally prepared to go to the show at the time and had declined to appear via an email.
The producers did not give up and again approached the boys after four months, asking them to "reconsider their decision." This time they said yes to appearing on the reality show, which gave "One Direction" the best platform to jump on the success wagon. Ben Selley has a huge fan following on YouTube and has been singing for quite a few years now. Check out one of the old videos below where Ben is seen singing "Sweet Child Of Mine."
