The American version of The X Factor was recently canceled, but Simon Cowell’s U.K.-originated singing contest is still going strong in Denmark, where one of this season’s participants is a trio of male singers called ManBand. The group’s bio, when translated to English, declares: “Since the program was launched in early January, it is clear that the group combines charm, bromance and good energy.” ManBand recently chose to show off those qualities, as well as large portions of one member’s chest, by performing a hearty rendition of the Flaming Lips’ modern classic “Do You Realize??” on the show. ManBand’s take on the song extra-hilariously ends with the “everyone you know someday will die” line. Check it out below.
