BiographyWhat About Tonight are a five-member boy band consisting of Christian Anthony, 15 (from Sydney, New South Wales), Mitchel Cave, 16 (from Cairns, Queensland), Tyrone Georgiadis, 18 (from Sydney, New South Wales), Luke Howell, 18 (from Sydney, New South Wales), and Brock Jays, 19 (from Wangaratta, Victoria).
They auditioned for The X Factor singing We the Kings' "Say You Like Me". What About Tonight met through YouTube in early 2012, and began rehearsing over Skype before coming together a week before their audition. They stated that One Direction inspired them to audition for the show.
What About Tonight cite One Direction, The Wanted and Justin Bieber as their musical influences. For the first live performance show on 17 September 2012, they sang The Wanted's "Glad You Came" and received praise from all four judges. Brown said it was the right song choice and Bassingthwaighte said she loved their performance. For the second live performance show on 25 September 2012, What About Tonight sang the Jonas Brothers' version of "Year 3000." The following day, they landed in the final showdown with Nathaniel Willemse. Keating and Brown voted to send Willemse home, while Bassingthwaighte and Sebastian voted to send home What About Tonight. Due to both acts receiving two votes each, the result was taken to deadlock and reverted to the earlier public vote. It was revealed that What About Tonight received the fewest votes and were eliminated.
