“American Idol” welcomed British pop group The Wanted on the Top 8 results show Thursday night (April 5). The boy band strutted their stuff in leather while the girls in the audience lost their minds, so that’s fun.

The mop-top boys from London performed “Glad You Came,” the second single released off their “Battleground” album, which just hit the United States in March 2012, though was released in the U.K. in November 2011.

What did you think? Are you a Wanted fan? And which boy is your favorite – Max, Nathan, Siva, Jay or Tom? Reminds how back in the day, our favorite New Kid was Joey.
