X Factor boyband, 5 After Midnight, are in Leicester today for the finalists’ homecoming.

The three piece group is made up of Kieran Alleyne, 21, Jordan Lee, 20 and Nathan Lewis, 23, who formed the band just five weeks before auditioning for the X-Factor.

Kieran Alleyne, who was born and bred in Eyres Monsell, Leicester, has come home with fellow bandmates to perform at The Athena before their last show on The X Factor final.

The trio are singing in St Peter’s Square at 4pm, and will then move onto the Athena for a live performance at 7pm. 1,600 tickets for tonight’s concert at the Athena were free to the public on a first come first serve basis.

The high demand for the tickets show Leicester’s support for the group as all tickets were gone within two and half hours.

Leicester locals are confident that 5AM will win the competition

Georgia Mahy, 20, told us “I really hope they win because I love them, they are definitely my favourite.”

Lauren Marshall, 18, said that “I think they’re the best. They are very talented and I like their voices.”

Joshua Findley, 20, said “I hope that 5 after Midnight win the X-Factor, because I love their dancing.”

Leicester are hoping to keep its success streak running with another X Factor win.

The city has had some luck with Sam Bailey’s X Factor win in 2013 and the Foxes’ Premier League win last season.

The boys will be performing live on ITV this weekend from London’s Wembley Arena.
