Last week JLS stopped by the TWIST office and we've all been singing their single Everybody in Love ever since! Marvin, Ashton, JB and Oritse chatted with us (in their cute British accents!) about winning Simon Cowell over on X Factor (The UK version of American Idol), hearing themselves on the radio for the first time, and dating. Eavesdrop on our conversation by clicking Read More and watch their single in the You Tube clip above.
TWIST: What's Simon Cowell really like? Oritse: He's quite funny. Simon is exactly like he seems on television. He may seem quite serious at times, but he has a funny side. He's very honest, he has his own opinion and he's very supportive of us. Since the show, he's been a big fan of us and we've been a big fan of his. Even after X Factor, he's always interested to see how we're doing and every time he sees us, he always gives us a big pat on the back.
TWIST: So, who's single and who's taken? Ashton, Oritse and JB: Single! Marvin: I'm dating a girl at the moment back home, which is going really well for us.
TWIST: When you have a girlfriend, would you rather go out a lot, or would you rather just hang out at home on the couch and watch a movie? JB: I like staying home. Ashton: You are always going out to dinner, bro! JB: I like going out to dinner, but not out out. I like being home. I like watching movies. I like chilling out on the sofa. Oritse: I like candles, a blanket, hot chocolate and a movie. Marvin: What about green tea? Ashton: There's a milkshake shop near us that does any flavor milkshake you want. JB: Skittles, peaches, anything! Ashton: This is the best thing you can do. You take a girl there, you get your milkshakes, and you go back and watch a movie.
TWIST: What was it like hearing yourself on the radio for the first time? Describe that moment. Marvin: Wow. That was... Ashton: We were in the studio! We were recording for the album and we had recorded our first single in the UK exactly a week prior to when we heard it. It was in the same studio, with the same people. We worked on the single and then a week later we were in the studio working on something else when they turned on the radio and our song was on the radio! TWIST: Oh my gosh. A week later! Ortise: That was the quickest turn-around ever. TWIST: So you guys were all together. That's so cool. Oritse: To be honest with you, I've shared the most magical moments of my life with Ashton, Marvin and JB. That's the truth! We share some incredible moments together. When you're with your friends, it's great.
