Goodbye JLS! Fans wave farewell at Birmingham gig

Six years ago, JLS made it to the final of the X Factor. Last night, they waved goodbye to their fans at an electrifying concert in Birmingham.

They came. They saw. They conquered. 

From the moment they stepped on stage JLS had every fan entranced.

This was their farewell tour - and kicking things off with hit single Hottest Girl In The World, the sounded and looked every inch the pop superstars they are. Dressed in head to toe black and white the band showed off their polished dance moves with The Club Is Alive and One Shot. 

The inevitable costume change was only a few songs in, the silence was filled with videos of the boys talking about the incredible journey they've been on. JB, Oritsé,

Marvin and Aston still seem like four normal guys who can't quite believe their luck.

A costume change later, they emerged in shirts and trousers where they performed their current and last ever single, A Billion Lights.
The talented group also delivered amazing acoustic performances of Take A Chance On Me, Hold Me Down and Proud. 

Debut single Beat Again received one of the biggest cheers of the night and saw Aston, finally, perform his infamous back flip.

They also treated us to some amazing covers including Treasure by Bruno Mars and Umbrella by Rihanna. They saved the best for last though - a poignant cover of the End Of The Road by Boys II Men made it really hit home - this was the end of JLS.

Then came the moment we all know was on its way - the final goodbye. Now dressed in sharp black suits the boys gave each other one last group hug before performing their last song Everybody In Love. 

The screen behind them lit up with an endless stream of fan photos and JLS memories. 

The performance carried one message, although JLS are over their amazing pop legacy will never be forgotten. As the boys said, JLS forever and ever. 

After the show Marvin took to twitter to state last night was the boys best performance at the LG and with only one remaining show in Birmingham- can Friday match up?

The farewell tour ends at the O2 Arena in London on December 22.
