JLS are a British boy band. JLS stands for Jack the Lad Swing. They were runners-up in the fifth series of the X factor in 2008, coming second to Alexandra Burke. The boy’s names are: Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, Jonathan "JB" Gill, and Oritsé Williams. Marvin was born in South-East London and started singing at the age of five. He attended a professional performance school 3 times a week as well as attending a regular school for his education. After finishing school, a chance meeting with Simon Webb gave Marvin the opportunity to hand over one of his demo tapes. Weeks later Marvin auditioned for Simon and was asked if he wanted to join VS (a group Simon Webb was putting together). JLS released their debut album on November 9th 2009. The album debuted at Number 1 on the UK Singles Chart, selling over 1 million copies. It was the sixth best selling album in the UK during 2009. Their debut single "Beat Again" went to number one on the UK Singles Chart on 19 July 2009. Their second single "Everybody in Love", released on 2 November 2009, also topped the UK Singles Chart.
I really think JLS are a really great group and I love catching up on their latest songs.
