First & Last… with Ultra Girls’ Laura Henderson

By Kathryn Cummings

The Ultra Girls began their quest for fame on the sixth series of The X Factor, under the name Project A.

The girls made it through to the judge’s houses stage of the show, but failed to make the live finals when judge, Louis Walsh, decided to take a chance with Jedward.

Not giving up on chart success, Project A were rebranded The Ultra Girls in 2010.
