JLS star Oritsé Williams has revealed he was once told that the hugely successful boy band "wouldn't work".
Speaking to Digital Spy at the Amy Winehouse Foundation Ball last night (November 20), Williams said he's happy to have "proved everyone wrong" and insists everyone should follow their dreams.
The She Makes Me Wanna singer dished: "JLS was an idea that I put together."
He continued: "Everyone said to me that it wouldn't work, everyone said I was wasting my time and seven years of amazing success just proved everyone wrong."
"It just goes to show that if you have a dream, if you have a vision, if you believe in yourself and you work hard enough, you can make it happen."
JLS, who found fame after competing on The X Factor in 2008, are set to perform on the show this weekend as part of the series' ten year anniversary celebrations.
The JLS boys announced they would be splitting up this year following the release of their Greatest Hits compilation and their farewell tour.
