X Factor band in legal battle

ONE of the leading acts in the talent show The X Factor is facing a legal battle, which would cast doubt on the band's claim its members met online just before auditioning for the show.

Sources in the industry have told The Sun-Herald What About Tonight, who already have 32,000 Twitter followers, are being sued by a music manager who will allege he manufactured them for months before the show.
