On his SYCO record company’s Instagram, he has recorded a short video. He explained, “You may have already heard about this but if you haven’t we are launching X Factor: The Band. This December and we have weeks to get this together, very simply. We are going to find either the biggest boy group in the world or the biggest girl group in the world. And you’ve got days to enter. We’ve done it before and we’re going to do it again. Right now K-POP you could argue, is ruling the world. Now it’s time for UK-POP.”
