FORMER ST ALBANS SCHOOL BOY'S 'THE KEYS' MAKE JUDGE'S HOUSE ON X FACTOR

Three of the group's five members, Rohan Kapoor, Nick Jackson and Dan Lipman are Old Albanians. Along with their fellow bandmates, lead vocalist Lewis Codling and Charlie Healey, they have made a huge impression on the judges and the public since their first audition, gaining a standing ovation for their performance. Since then, the video of their audition on YouTube has gone on to receive in excess of 725,000 views and has prompted over 800 comments.
The group will now have to win the support of the Group's mentor, N-Dubz's, Tulisa Constostavlos. She will be taking The Keys to a house in Greece for next weekend's X-Factor selection showdown, where the eight groups will be whittled down to four for the live TV show.
Clearly pleased with her protégés, Tulisa is quoted by today's Metro as saying: "Imagine if I walked into the room and saw a different category,' I would feel bad for the category because they would know and I would know that I really, really had my heart set on something else.
'I'm just so grateful that I've been given the groups this year. I really feel that I can bring the best out of them, and I really feel that they can bring the best out of me as a judge.'
Meanwhile, I'll be watching X-Factor with renewed interest next weekend to see how our local lads get on. Good luck to The Keys!
