The Wanted take American Idol by storm

The Wanted look one step closer to breaking into the big-time stateside after performing on American Idol.

The UK lads performed the coveted slot last night (April 5), playing their hit single 'Glad You Came'.

They got a rapturous response from the audience, the the quintet performing with a full band. They were also joined by a group of amorous female dancers.

The Wanted certainly enjoyed their experience it seems, tweeting photos of themselves backstage the Idol judges, such as Jennifer Lopez.

Afterwards the band tweeted a message of thanks for everyone who watched the show. They said:

"Thank you to everyone who tuned in tonight... that was the most unbelievable experience to date."
