jsut twist the wires 2gether and tape them so they dont short out other things.

My advice here would be to make sure you use the right soldering iron and do some practicing on some junk componets first to get the hang of soldering as even though the previous post will work over the past few years(and were talking about alot here) anything but soldering runs the risk of eventually breaking contact and stop working.

Well, even that can become un-done, especially if it's something you're a novice at. Soldering is the best option though, far better than just twisting and taping. Controllers tend to get jostled around a lot, so if you taped something it could come undone and touch something you wouldn't want it to touch. Then you run the risk of having a dead controller.
I'd suggest just practicing on wires that you can make the same size points on. Things are a lot easier when you can solder it on your own. It's really not that difficult, unless you have extremely unsteady hands. I haven't soldered LED's on a controller before, but I can't imagine the solder points would be too difficult.
