Take That Knock 'Greatest Day' Out Of The Park On 'The X Factor'

Wow! I don't think Take That's new single "Greatest Day" really clicked with me (and maybe many others?) until they performed it tonight on U.K. reality contest The X Factor. Something about seeing the foursome do the song live just made it sound so much more vibrant.

In recent weeks Mariah Carey and Leona Lewis have performed on The X Factor (and Britney Spears is due on there...next week?), but the That blew those broads out of the water tonight. Check it out below...

"Greatest Day" is out this coming week in the U.K., and full album The Circus will be released December 1.

    LOVED it. A great performance from them and (for me!) this is the second time they've perfectly visually captured the song's feel. I cannot wait for this album.

    Thanks for the video!

    can't agree with you there... this song is awful... granted this is the first hearing for me.... but it just doesnt DO anything. - and i swear the other 3 mime the backing vocals.

    Nice performance, although that eye thing Barlow does when he hits the high notes freaks me out a bit.

    PG, oh, what was the first?

    Dan, I didn't like it upon first listen, either. The B-sides are so much better!

    Michael, YES!!! I was going to point that out... I love how the vid's holding image is his wonk eye.

    You have to watch the promo video for this one -- as someone who misses Los Angeles dearly, the clip is infused with the light and sun that makes L.A. a special place to live
