Josh Cuthbert rising star on talent show

Former Farnborough Sixth Form College student, Josh Cuthbert, is on his way to stardom on the X Factor, with his band Union J.

Josh has had a rollercoaster ride with the X Factor this year. He initially auditioned as a three piece band – Triple J – who got through to the very last stages of Bootcamp. Following a sing-off with another band, Triple J were not put through. However, three weeks later Louis Walsh visited Josh’s house and invited the band to the next round. A week before they went to Las Vegas, another member joined the band and they became Union J. Union J performed in front of Louis Walsh and Sharon Osborne on top of a hotel in Las Vegas for a place in the live finals. Thankfully they are now through to the live finals, which start this weekend.

With best wishes to you Josh from everyone at the College - we are all cheering you on!
