Only The Young's Parisa, Mikey, Charlie and Betsy have jumped to the defence of their 'X Factor' mentor Louis Walsh, insisting he does know their names
Only The Young have defended their 'X Factor' mentor Louis Walsh.
The four piece - made up of Parisa Tarjomani, Mikey Bromley, Betsy-Blue English and Charlie George - have jumped to the defence of their mentor on the ITV talent show after he struggled to name the eight members of his boy band Stereo Kicks on the live shows last weekend.
Speaking at a special sing-along screening of Disney's 'Frozen' at London's Royal Albert Hall last night (17.11.14), Betsy exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "He does know our names, whenever he sees us in the corridors he's always shouting our names. I think it's maybe a bit of stage fright when he's put on the spot."
Adding that the 62-year-old music manager is under a lot of pressure, Charlie said: "People don't realise that he does actually work really hard. He's always in meetings - he's got so much going on in that mental Irish brain of his as well, so we'll let him off."
The wannabe pop stars went on to admit that while they'd love to win 'The X Factor', they're trying to enjoy the experience as much as possible while they can.
Charlie explained: "You have to take every week as it comes. You never know the theme, you never know who's getting the most votes or where you're going to be so we're just going out there and having as much fun as we can, singing our hearts out."
Mikey added: "We want to be in that final, so we've just got to keep battling away."
