West Track Boys Charm 'X Factor Philippines' Judges (Video)

West Track Boys of X Factor Philippines
They may not have the aura of a typical boy band like those that inspired their name - Westlife and the Backstreet Boys - but they can certainly perform like one.

Meet the West Track Boys. Composed of miners, a fish vendor, a "disco mobile operator" and a farmer ages 17-29, the group charmed the "X Factor Philippines" judges with their rendition of NSYNC's "This I Promise You."

"We like them all. They have a potential. Their blending is great," said judge Pilita Corales, who gave a smooch to each member of the group after their performance.

West Track Boys also trended on Twitter on July 15, 2012, the night their audition was aired.

Check out a Dailymotion video of the "X Factor Philippines" episode featuring the West Track Boys below (the group's audition starts at 3:50):

"X Factor Philippines" returns next weekend for the Bootcamp, the second part of the competition where those who passed the auditions are further refined through a series of performances until a small number eventually progress to the live finals.
