"Bay Shore's One4Five advance on "X Factor" -- with a twist"

Bay Shore's One4Five got cut from “The X Factor” Wednesday night, but still advanced to the Round of 24 after taking on a new member.
The judges decided to give the rapping brothers Jemelle and Julien Joseph another chance, inviting them to the next round if they formed a new group with solo rapper Lyric Da Queen from Flint, Mich. (Simon Cowell's “X Factor” likes creating new groups to compete on the show, a process that led to forming One Direction on the show's British version.)
The new group, Lyric 145, did well in their next audition, doing a hip-hop version of Miley Cyrus' “Party in the USA” in front of Cowell and mentor Marc Anthony at Cowell's home in Miami Beach.
“Very impressed,” said Anthony, praising Lyric Da Queen as a superstar.
The members of the new Lyric 145 were clicking.
“How is it even possible?” Jemelle told Cowell. “You found a female version of us.”
In true “X Factor” fashion, the results are being used as a cliffhanger, with the finalists not being announced until next week. If Lyric 145 advance to the next round, they will be one of 16 acts performing live for a chance to win a $5 million recording contract.
“This determines our future so we have to give it all in our present time,” Julien said, soaking in the atmosphere of Cowell's luxurious house. “We want to live this life right now.” - Glenn Gamboa
