'X Factor' boy band GMD3 have settled on the name District 3 as their new title
'X Factor' boy band GMD3 want to be renamed District 3.
The group - made up of Dan Ferrari-Lane, Greg West and Nicky Parsons - wanted to change their names after Sharon Osbourne claimed they sounded like a virus and have decided on District 3, although it has yet to be confirmed.
Their mentor Louis Walsh told BANG Showbiz: "GMD3's new name? I think it will be District 3. District 3 we are hoping to clear. But it's not 100 per cent. "
Nicky added: "There were quite a few good suggestions, and loads of joke ones. Greg and His Sausage Rolls. Threesome, Threeway. Louis' Little Boys."
Louis is confident in the group, who will perform live for the first time tomorrow (06.10.12), and believes they have already proved how well they can sing in the auditions, Boot Camp and Judges' Homes stage of the competition.
He added: "They're great guys. They've already proved themselves vocally, and I think they are going to be great."
GMD3 will be joined by Union J and MK1 on the live show tomorrow.
