Max George gets a hug and kiss from judge Jennifer Lopez when he and his bandmates perform on the stage of the singing competition.
The Wanted brought boyband fever to the stage of "American Idol". The boys performed their chart-busting single "Glad You Came" during a result show of the singing competition that aired Thursday, March 5 and saw the elimination of DeAndre Brackensick.
During their set, one of the band's members Max George got a hug from judge Jennifer Lopez. At one point, he's also seen leaning on her from behind for a kiss before returning to the center stage. He later tweeted, "One of the best days of my life...thanks america!!"
Meanwhile, the British boyband tweeted a joint statement on their Twitter page, "Thank you to everyone who tuned in tonight... that was the most unbelievable experience to date #TheWantedOnIdol." They additionally called the gig "a special moment."
In addition to The Wanted, the "Idol" was also made merry by a performance by Kellie Pickler. The singer, who once participated on season 5, returned to the singing competition to deliver her single called "Where's Tammy Wynette".
