X Factor: meet the twelve finalists through to the live shows

The Groups – Rough Copy

Members: Kaz (24), Sterling (25) and Joey (27)

Occupation: Kaz (Carpenter), Sterling (unemployed), Joey (Sales Assistant in New Look)

Sterling, Joey and Kaz have been in band Rough Copy for five years after Kaz put them together. The band made it through to Judges' Houses last year but had to pull out when Kaz was unable to travel due to visa issues.

The same happened this year, but when Sterling and Joey made it to the live shows this year, Gary felt that the band would be better if they were reunited as a three piece.

As well pursuing their own dream of musical stardom, the boys also teach music to underprivileged youngsters.

"I was in a club in Crawley performing on the stage and after I came off, Kaz approached me and asked me to join his group," said Joey. "I was a bit frightened at first, thinking 'who is this random guy?' I'd never really thought to be in a group. I thought it would be a hassle but I joined and that's our history.

"We can't even explain the feeling of having Gary as our judge," said Sterling. "We used to watch Take That when we were younger." Photo: © ITV
