One of our fave rockstars turned judge/mentor, Demi Lovato, admits she would love to return to X Factor... Next year!
When asked about the possibility of her being a judge again on the show, Demi spilled: "I'm focusing on my music this year, so it's going to be a lot of touring, a lot of promoting of my new album, but I would love to. Obviously, if they asked for me to come back, I'd say yes."
We hope Demi goes back to X Factor! We loved seeing her on our TVs every week! :)
-- Do you think Demi was a good judge on X Factor? Do you think she should return?
Did you fall in love with the guys of Emblem3 on X Factor this past season? If so, we've got some exciting new deets about what's next for Wesley, Keaton and Drew and it's pretty exciting! Last month, we asked the boys if they thought they'd get a record deal and Keaton said, "Rumor has it, yes." Guess he was right, because the swoon-worthy singers just signed a record deal with Syco Music and Columbia Records. Congrats guys!
-Who is your fave member of Emblem3? What type of song would you like them to have on their upcoming album?
We were super bummed to see Carly Rose, Fifth Harmony, and Emblem3 get eliminated from X Factor, but we have good news to share! They're all getting record deals! These X Factor grads will most likely have record deals with a company Simon Cowell co-owns!
Simon's had faith in Fifth Harmony from early on and even said, "There is such a market now for this girl band...I think where there's boybands there'll be girl bands. We may have someone who can fit that gap!" We love Lauren, Dinah, Camila, Normani, and Ally and can't wait to here more from them!
After Emblem3 went home, Simon basically confirmed he'll sign them! He said "I'm not going to let anyone else get them." "If we don't sign them, someone else will." We're glad Simon recognizes how great they are!
Simon's also been a huge fan of Carly Rose Sonenclar and has great plans for her too! He believe's she'll do wonderfully with this record company!
We're super excited to see what's next for our X Factor friends!
-Which artist are you most excited to hear new music from?
Apparently even celebs are Directioners! Last night at the X Factor, Kendall and Kylie Jenner were thrilled to meet the blonde babe, Niall Horan.
Kylie tweeted the One Direction boys congratulating them on their amazing performance (and gave a personal shout out to Nialler): "@onedirection did amazing tonight! And good meeting you @niallofficial!"
Mr. Horan replied: "@KylieJenner yes lovely to meet you and @kendalljenner ! Hopefully see you again soon!"
Here's a pic below of Kendall and Kylie with their sis Khloe:
Hmmm...maybe Ken and Ky will start hangin' out with 1D!
So, lets dish:
- Do you think the Jenner sisters and Niall are going to be besties? Do you think Kendall and Kylie will start chilling with One Direction?
Last night's epic X Factor finale was full of twists and turns right up until the very end! The three finalists, Fifth Harmony, Carly Rose Sonenclar and Tate Stevens, each took the stage one more time to sing some holiday classics and get special video messages from their loved ones. Then, it was time for business! (And, of course, amazing performances from One Direction and Pitbull -- check back on mmm-mag.com for vids!)
Early in the episode, it was revealed that Fifth Harmony came in third place, leaving Carly Rose and Tate to fight for the coveted top spot! Though we <3 5H, we weren't too shocked by the top two -- they've been on top all season long.
Then came the moment of truth -- and it was announced that Tate Stevens was the winner of X Factor season 2! We're super-happy for Tate, but bummed for adorable 13-year-old powerhouse Carly. Carly tweeted her support for Tate, saying, "You are amazing @Tatestevensctry! You deserve this! Congrats #Tatenation!" What a sweetie.
One thing's for sure -- Ms. Sonenclar will be a major star no matter what!
-Do you think Carly Rose deserved to win X Factor, or was Tate the right guy? Were you shocked by the results?
Wow, we can't believe it's almost over! After weeks of watching our favorite contestants perform on the X Factor, the final three has finally been chosen! Before you watch tonight's live finals, catch up on everything that happened last week, in our weekly X Factor recap!
Just like last week, each contestant was give two chances to take the stage, and prove they have the X Factor. The first song was chosen entirely by the artist, while the second was chosen by both the artist and their mentor as a last effort to secure a spot in the finals.
Check out our fave performances of the night!:
For Emblem 3's contestant-chosen song, the guys picked "Baby, I Love Your Way" by Peter Frampton. We loved the reggae twist E3 put into the tune, and their killer stage presence!:
Can you say country star?! After Tate Stevens' performance of his chosen song Craig Morgan's "Bonfire", we're totes convinced he's the real deal!:
Does Carly Rose Sonenclar ever get a song wrong? We don't think so! We love her choice of Elton John's "Your Song" especially because she dedicated it to her dad (plus it totes reminds us of 1D's X Factor performance of the tune!):
Fifth Harmony gave all they had to their performance of the song they chose, Ellie Goulding's "Anything Could Happen"-- and we think it paid off! They looked like complete pop stars on the stage, and we think it was their best performance of the competition!:
Which performance did you like best?
For the first time, only one act was voted out of the competition during the night's elimination. This elimination was the most important yet, because those who made it through would official move on to the finals! We were so shocked when it was announced that Emblem 3 received the fewest votes, and would be going home!
Just like Simon said, we already know E3 will have a huge career after X Factor--we can't wait to hear their music!
Check back next week for our final X Factor recap, and be sure to watch part one of the X Factor finale tonight at 8/7c on Fox!
-What was your highlight of last week's X Factor? Do you think the right act went home?
After a surprising upset on last night's episode of X Factor, one of our fave acts, Emblem 3 was eliminated -- we thought for sure they'd make it into the finals! After their elimination, E3's mentor, Simon Cowell told them "You are going to have a huge career" -- and we totally agree!
Check out our fave performance from the guys-- their mash up of "What Makes You Beautiful", "California Girls", and "My Girl":
We're so sad to see E3 go, but we wanna know what you think.
In the comments section below, tell us if you thought Emblem should have been eliminated. Did you think they would win the whole thing? Are you excited to hear new music from them in future? Let us know!
The X Factor competition is slowly winding down, and with only four acts left as we approach the semi-finals, things are more intense than ever! Missed even a second of the journey from the final six to the final four? Read on for our weekly X Factor recap!
With so few acts left, each performer had to perform two songs to determine their fate! The first of two themes was unplugged, which meant the contestants had to perform a stripped down version of a song-- perf to really hear their voices! The second theme was songs voted by X Factor fans-- and we think the choices were some of the best so far!
Check out some of our fave performances of the night:
After Carly Rose Sonenclar's unplugged performance of Justin Bieber's "As Long As You Love Me", Demi said that her version was better than the original-- and we just might agree!:
For their unplugged performance, Emblem 3 chose Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are"-- and we're loving it!:
The fans chose Demi Lovato's song "Give Your Heart A Break" for Fifth Harmony-- and even Demi thought the girls' version was better than her own!:
Could there have been a more fitting song for Diamond White to sing than Rihanna's "Diamonds"? We love her entrance!:
Which performance did you like best?
After fighting he way out of the bottom, CeCe Frey was the first to be eliminated by America's votes. We can totally CeCe with a successful career as a pop star in the future! After the judges voted, it was announced that Diamond White was the second contestant going home! We're totally gonna miss the diva energy she brought to the stage each week.
We were so bummed to see CeCe and Diamond go home! Check back next week for another X Factor recap, and be sure to watch an all new episode of X Factor at 8/7c tonight on Fox!
-What was your highlight of last week's X Factor? Do you think the right person went home?
After an amazing week full of One Direction in NYC, from their MSG concert to Jingle Ball, the M editors can 100% confirm that the boys sound incredible live! But, this morning we've got the next best thing -- an awesome vid of the guys performing their catchy next single, "Kiss You" at the 'X Factor' UK finale! We always love seeing the guys return to their roots.
Check out the performance here:
What an awesome performance -- we're so obsessed with this tune!
-What did you think of One Direction's performance? Which song would you most want to hear them perform live?
