Miss Frank say "Give Jedward a chance"

Miss Frank who are currently touring the country after their shock exit from the X-Factor have asked that the Twins Jonathan and Edward Grimes be given a chance.

They were speaking to the South Yorkshire Star in Barnsley. "Those guys are like our little brothers, they're such good boys," said rapper Graziella Affinita, aged 25.

"They work harder than anyone else, they have dance routines to learn and they get so much stick but they just keep going, we'd love to see them go all the way."

"Anyone who says anything against them will be in trouble with us," added Shaniece Davis, 21.

The girls said that the highlight of the show for them was obviously meeting one another and that Britain has not heard the last of Miss Frank.

"X Factor is such a great platform and obviously the best part for us was meeting one another and getting together," said Shar Alexander, 25. "It feels like we've already known each other for years, these girls are like my sisters."

Graziella, Shaniece and Shar Alexandra performed at the Barnsley nightclub to a packed house with fantastic covers of Cry Me A River and Aretha Franklin's Respect, ahead of their After Dark performance at Don Valley Bowl on Thursday.

"Everyone in that show is there for a reason," Shar added when asked who they'd like to see win.

"I'd love to see any one of them make it to the top."

"It's such a shame we had to get voted off but that is the nature of the show and it was such a great experience," added Graziella. "But you'll definitely be hearing more of Miss Frank so watch out!"

When asked what their favourite part of visiting Yorkshire was, Graziella said: "Definitely the Sunday dinners. We love that you guys have them every day of the week up in the North, we've already had three this week!"

All of the rejects will all be performing at 1am at Escapade nightclub in Barnsley every Wednesday night as they are eliminated so don't miss your favourite!

X FACTOR evictee Rachel Adedeji will perform in Barnsley on Wednesday and Chesterfield on Thursday after being booted off the hit ITV show.

The gravelly voiced 18-year-old will be the fourth act to appear at Escapade nightspots in Barnsley and Chesterfield and meet and greet their fans.

Ex-Blue Singer Simon Webbe is Miss Frank Fan

One of the singers from chart topping boy band Blue had told the Press association that he misses Miss Frank from the current series of X-Factor

He confessed he isn't "really a fan" of any of the remaining acts since the urban girl group were voted off the competition.

He said: "I really loved their style and what they were about, they were a bit raw but put them in a studio and they would make a wicked record."

With Miss Frank gone, Simon thinks Olly Murs will go on to win the show because he has "natural talent" and is "progressing every week".

And joining the Jedward debate, the All Rise singer said the twins shouldn't even be on The X Factor.

He said: "I think it's the wrong show for them. Britain's Got Talent, it should've been that, but at the end of the day you can't argue with the public.

"I think the kids are going to love them. My little girl will like them, she's 13."

Miss Frank : That's Life after X-Factor

It is always tough after the highs of X-Factor for so many contestants, the emotional high followed by what can only be described as public rejection when you are voted off.

Many never recover and it was widely expected that Miss Frank would go that way because the girls were "forced" together by the X-Factor judges, so it is good to see them still going strong.

Graziella Affinita, Shaniece Davis and Shar Alexandra, who make up the three-piece group Miss Frank, were at Asda in Garston on the outskirts of Watford where they performed a live set organised by Talk Talk.

An excited Helen Eamus, 22, said: “I really love X Factor.

“I’ve been following this series and have supported the twins John and Edward and Miss Frank. I couldn’t wait to see the girls perform here today, it’s brilliant.”

Children and adults scrambled to get as close to the trio as possible, as the girls performed a rendition of Aretha Franklin’s “Respect”, Rose Royce’s “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore” and their audition-song Frank Sinatra's “That’s Life”.

Putting her own spin on each of the tracks, Graziella Affinita sang her trademark raps halfway through the songs, while the other girls accompanied her in soulful harmony.

Ian Frampton, 33, who was accompanied by his children, said: “We were shopping in Asda and heard that the girls would be performing.

“I’ve been watching the X Factor this year and thought the girls were great. They shouldn’t have left this week, not when you look at who they were up against. They were fantastic then and they’re fantastic now.”

After their brief gig, Miss Frank happily signed photos for eager fans as they expressed their happiness at performing in Asda, but their disappointment at having to leave X Factor early.

Graziella Affinita said: “It’s great to perform here in Asda, the show went really well and we’ve had a great reception. Of course we would have liked to have carried on with X Factor, but it’s just the way it is.

“You could say it’s a bit like the song we just performed, “That’s life.”

Miss Frank Next Sugababes?

With Keisha gone, Amelle on a indeterminate break the Sugababes are kind in a limbo. Could there be a gap in the market? Well Louis Walsh thinks so.

Louis reckons Miss Frank can be next Sugababes. He said of the three girls Graziella Affinita, Shaniece Davis and Shar Alexander who entered the contest as solo singers but were put together as a band by the judges: "If they want to stay they will get a record deal. Some one's watching out there, and will see they are a ready-made group."

Miss Frank Song for Big Band Weekend revealed

In a leak this week apparently Louis Walsh has revealed the song choices for his groups as part of Big Band week. He made it known that girl group Miss Frank will be singing the Frank Sinatra all time classic "That's Life

The leak happened when Louis Walsh let it slip during an interview on Irish TV station TV3. He also revealed the Twins John and Edward Grimes will be singing Rick Martin's "She Bangs".

The song for Miss Frank seems inspired and I think they can carry off. The Twins I am not so sure, but then they aren't really about music are they.

Other song choice leaks for this have come through although these are unconfirmed.

Danyl Johnson - Feeling Good (as performed by Michael Bublé)

Miss Frank at the Judge's House

They came in to the X-Factor boot camp as three individual singers and left as a group and their final test to reach the final was at Louis Walsh's lakeside villa at Lake Como, Italy.

Here is how it panned out

Miss Frank are X Factor favourites for ex-Sugababe Keisha

Ex sugababe Keisha Buchanan no stranger to successful girl groups has tipped Miss Frank as potential winners of the reality TV talent show X-Factor. Full report on STV.

The Making of Miss Frank at X-Factor Boot Camp.

First they were three girls Graziella Affinita, Shaniece Davis and Shar Alexander at boot camp, the X-Factor judges thought individually they were not good enough, but as often happens in the X-Factor it was suggested that they came together as a group.

That's how Miss Frank came about, and you kind of knew if the Judges brought them together then it was almost certain they would get through, especially as the group section this year is fairly poor.

Here is how it all happened.

Miss Frank Could Be In for Good Run This Year

The bookies are betting on which of the groups will last the longest in X Factor 2009 and the favourites by a mile are Miss Frank, who look much better than Kandy Rain and John and Edward Grimes despite the fact Miss Frank were formed on X Factor 2009 by three rejected solo artists.

Miss Frank are rated at 20/1 with Bet365 and Stan James to win X Factor 2009 and just 4/7 with Paddy Power and Blue Square to last the longest out of the groups.
