X Factor Winner Ben Haenow: 'One Direction Are Rock Stars'
This year's champ has praised Harry Styles and Co after their performance with Ronnie Wood during Sunday's finale...
Following his victory over Fleur East on Sunday (December 15), we just had to ask Ben whether 1D's achievements have excited him for what is possibly ahead.
Speaking of their performance with Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood, Haenow said: "Those boys look like they are having so much fun up there and they enjoy what they're doing. The enjoy performing and I think that's a really key factor.
"You know, you can go in and record your albums and do all this stuff but the main thing you wanna do is to go out there and perform, and you can see that the boys are absolutely loving it."
He added: "So yeah, to see what they're doing and to think maybe… Obviously the success they've had has been unbelievable and to have even a little bit of the success that they've had would be great."
The 29-year old champ went on to conclude: "People see them sometimes as a boyband but their not, they're rock stars.
"The type of stuff that they're doing and the way that they perform, they have definitely got a bit of rock and roll in them."
Ben's debut single Something I Need is out now.
