G4 are a four-piece British vocal troupe who first came to prominence when they finished second in Series 1 of The X Factor in 2004. Originally a barbershop quartet, the members met at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, from which the name G4, standing for "Guildhall 4", derives. Prior to auditioning for the show, they performed as buskers during their free time at college to earn extra money and gain experience, and were known for their operatic delivery of modern pop songs. Its current members are Jon Ansell, Mike Christie, Ben Thapa, and Nick Ashby, with the latter replacing former bass singer Matt Stiff in 2014.
