Britney learning that Fifth Harmony was safe @SamuelGrantS


@MyBelieberSwag_

WHOA SHOCKING RESULTS TONIGHT! But I can’t say I’m displeased.  Fifth Harmony out performed Emblem3 over the course of the competition and earned their spot in the final.  Simon tried to cram his boys down our throats, and in the end his machinations didn’t work. If you remember, Emblem3 were pretty far down the leader board in the beginning. Also, Simon was turning them into something they weren’t in order to make them palatable to audiences. In the end, it wasn’t serving the boys very well. If he plans to sign them no matter what, it’s better for them to go out early with a tiny bit of dignity left.  I have to be honest–I love watching Simon get his ass kicked.

Britney Spears was the gift that kept on giving tonight. First with her disgusted response to Fifth Harmony being declared safe, and then her display of prognosticating powers as she declared Emblem3 eliminated before it was announced! TRAINWRECK. Simon’s hilariously bad acting as he attempted to seem genuinely surprised AND HAPPY when the girls made it through was a thing to behold, as was his attempts to keep from looking pissed when Emblem3 were eliminated.

In the end, it doesn’t really matter if Emblem3, 5H or Carly Rose went home. Because Tate Stevens–cool as a cucumber–is going to grab the crown next week. Handily. There is going to be zero suspense in this finale.

I’ll be live blogging the X Factor Top 4 results right here! Bruno Mars is set to perform.

It’s time TO FACE THE MUSIC and the RESULTS! The three finalists are REVEALED.

Khloe and Mario take the stage. Khloe. PULL YOUR SKIRT DOWN. And now here come the X Factor judges. I’m digging Demi’s dress.

Bridget Mendler is performing tonight. I have NO idea who she is. But I know all about the other performer, Bruno Mars.

OH. GROUP SONG FROM THE TOP 4 YAY. “Coming Home” is the turn. A rather unfortunate song choice, no? This is so weird. Suddenly, Emblem3 burst on the stage to rap the Diddy part. Carly sounds great doing the Skylar Gray part. Fifth Harmony are like background singers. Tate Stevens is woefully out of place.

Khloe and Mario can’t stop reminding us of how someone’s dreams will be shattered into a million pieces tonight. OK. We get it.

Now it’s time for last night’s recap. La la la. Not looking forward to the massive amounts of filler that will be required to fill the hour.

Simon says it’s going to be difficult for his girls. The bodies aren’t even warm yet Simon! Geez.

Khloe just called the prize a “5 million dollar recording contract”. Hm. The contestants share what winning the prize would mean to them. I’ve been dreaming about this since I was little. Blah blah blah. No talk about becoming rich, though.

The first act to make it through to the finals will be revealed! The Top 4 takes the stage. The first act is…Fifth Harmony! WOW WOW WOW! The girls are freaking out. Simon pretends to be happy and surprised. The rest of the group must be peeing their pants.

Britney smelled a fart! Ha ha the look on her face. 1000 gifs have been launched!

Britney reacts hilariously: She is disappointed because she thought Emblem3 would go through instead. OOPS BRITNEY. EMBLEM3 HAS NOT BEEN ELIMINATED YET. Britney has turned into a mindreader, just like Pauler! This show is such a trainwreck.

Bridget Mendler is next, and she’s a Kylie/Natasha knock off. Yawn.

Mario is rattling off the X Factor audition places and dates. Watch.

The second act going through to next week’s grand finale is…Tate Stevens!  I was totally expecting Tate to be called second. Britney looks totally pissed at the possibility that her act could be eliminated tonight.

Not surprised Carly and Emblem3 are left until the end. They are the two most vulnerable acts after Fifth Harmony.

Khloe is backstage with a very nervous Carly Rose and Emblem3. And I’m sure Khloe asking them awkward questions is helping them feel better. Emblem3 were basically “we don’t care if we win, we know we’ll be OK.” That’s right, because Simon is signing them anyway.

Bruno Mars is next! He sings “Locked out of Heaven”.

It’s time to find out WHO is taking the third spot in the Top 3. Will it be Carly Rose or Emblem 3? And it’s…Carly Rose Sonenclar! Shes TOTES relived. Poor thing. Bye bye Douchebag3! Ha ha. SIMON LOOKS TOTALLY PISSED. All that planning, plotting and manipulating for nothing!

Here are Your Top 3 Finalists

  • Fifth Harmony
  • Tate Stevens
  • Carly Rose Sonenclar

And Eliminated Tonight

  • Emblem3

    One thing that the x factor has over idol is that the group numbers hardly suck and come across cheesy.

  • genius13

    I won’t be joining you guys tonight.. Its gonna break my heart/infuriate me when 5H gets eliminated so I’m not gonna watch… first Amanda Brown and now 5H…UGH F**K MY LIFE

    WOW!  So who goes home for this to happen. I’m gonna be so upset if it’s Carly!

  • Nedsdag

    Wait, what?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CHZSJKJQRO5OEV7XUDSORCRJAI anonoymous

    Fifth Harmony can thank their performance “Anything Can Happen” for their making it through.

    Please let Carly be safe. Please let Carly be safe!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1468223561 Jim Benson

    oh geez…must be Emblem3 going home

  • http://twitter.com/HighTensions Jake Williams

    I think Carly is going home. I hope not,but what Kardashian said earlier worried me. I’m happy for 5th Harmony though.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/IYMZ43XMLLAE6RVHJS4M6KNC5Y Dennis

    YAY they made it finally a good result show this season. lol

  • keware

    The way Simon was talking at the beginning of the show about Fifth Harmony convinced me that he definitely knew they were safe. 

  • http://www.celebritybug.net/ Amanda (Celebrity Bug)

    Unlike Fifth Harmony, Haley deserved her spot in the top 3, which 5th will to as long as Emblem 3 goes home.

  • SullyD

    I think Carly will get the boot. I HOPE is Douche3, but I dunno….

  • genius13

    Omg…I wanted 5H in but not at the expense of Carly… Im worried… I’ll sacrifice Tate or E3 but not Carly.. Please not Carly

  • elliegrll

    It may be too little too late, but this show really needed 5th Harmony to advance.  In a way, it’s similar to AI needing a winner who isn’t white and male.

    They made a mistake giving the rankings every week, and making it seem like only Tate and Carly stood a chance of winning.

  • beanowl

    As much as it drives me absolutely nuts when 5H squeals about how “OMG! It’s like we’re the SAME PERSON in FIVE DIFFERENT BODIES!!!!!!” and then they all giggle and hug each other…. I would really like to see them survive the elimination. They are so much more enjoyable than Tate or E3. 

  • http://twitter.com/BazzleFjsm Bazzle

    NO BE SAFE CARLY!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1468223561 Jim Benson

    If I were to pick it I would have Tate going home…to me he is the most Karaoke…I realize he has a huge fan base but he is not my favorite…I think that if they had not released vote totals all along the judges comments may not have been as nice..

  • kmd23

    I am really surprised. Not sure who is going home as there is no way I thought 5th Harmony would be top 3. E3 knows they are signed to Simon’s label either way so maybe they don’t really care.

  • Klaine

    WOW
    If Simon gets both groups thru, he’s going to be in tol erable. If carly or tate who were top 2 season leave it’s fishy. M worried @ Carly since they criticized he r… was Simon playing sabotage games again with other mentors acts? Carly will have a meltdown.. Go from #1 to out cuz Simon criticizes… Ouch… emblem 3 will be signed by Simon regardless

    “Got one act, now I need to get the others.”

    Okay Simon, can’t you celebrate 5H’s victory without talking about your boys? And now we know Emblem3 is safe because Simon obviously knows the results and wouldn’t have said that if they weren’t going through…

    “The season one finalist talks with THR about his producing ambitions, as well as being the first featured performer on a new show, “Real Music Live,” premiering on NBC Dec. 22.”

    ETA: The show will also feature Haley Reinhart.

     Finally a voice of reason amoung the loathing!!  E3 was very classy just now.  They applauded Fifth Harmony, then Tate and then Carly.  They were sweet and totally non-douchy.  I know they have a bright successful future ahead of them.

    Congrats to Carly, Tate and Fifth Harmony.

  • dabney c

    I suspect Simon enjoys taking non-winning 3rd or 4th-place finishers, and making them much more successful than the winner. It’s like his final ‘f*ck you’ to the voting public, while at the same time a reminder to himself that he knows better than the rest of the world. Maybe I’m crazy, but once he knew he was going to sign and promote E3, he WANTED them to get booted off the show.

    We’ll see.  I don’t see these guys becoming the next big thing like One Direction but as Simon says, “Anything can happen”.

    Interesting article. That show on NBC is airing after SNL at 1am? Better set the DVR.

    1D had a colossal fanbase when they left XF-UK. Emblem3 fanbase for a boy band is a joke. UnionJ  this year has 2 times more followers than Dbag3, even the fodder group District3 has more followers. And when it comes to boy bands followers on twitter is important to measure the fanbase. These douches aren’t going anywhere.

  • http://twitter.com/Girltalkbf AlesheaDominique

    Good thing I don’t really listen to the stations that will play them. I have no problem with Simon signing them or them making music. But I would have had a huge problem if they had made the finals over individuals who I think are more talented. 

  • Kitwana

    Simon thinks he can make Emblem 3 into another 1D. Problem is that 1D came from a far more popular show than Emblem 3 – a show that a country cared about. I bet most Americans don’t know who Emblem 3 are. Also, if it was so easy to duplicate success, I’m pretty sure that Scooter Braun and Usher would have another Justin Bieber by now and Johnny Wright would have another Backstreet Boys. Good luck making Emblem 3 happen Simon. You’ll need it. An appearance in the finale and all the press from winning would have been invaluable exposure that Emblem 3 just lost.

  • Levis501PW

     Same here!  Cheers!

  • Nedsdag

    Simon was hoisted on his own petard. He kept pushing the O.C. boys as his American answer to One Direction when his actual American answer was his other group. Although female, Fifth Harmony has the charm, personality, and of course talent that 1D has and Emblem 3 lacks.

    Plus, the girls are peaking at the right moment. Keep harmonizing, learn to move around more, listen less to Simon, and young ladies, you could pull off another upset.

    What. a. night.

    O wow.. chill chill everyone haha this is why I would never want to be a celebrity. I cannot imagine how much judgement good or bad that celebrities have to deal with… it would drive me insane. Congratulations to all the acts your fans love what you do and keep doing it.. that’s what musics about sharing the emotion and love. The business/political side of things can often make people forget. Btw this is in general I’m not trying to lecture anybody or offend anyone. To E3: Keep doing the REAL you… never stray from it. I just hope if they do get signed they get to do what they really want. I would love an album of their originals.

     Believe it or not One Direction had the same polarizing effect and loathing as E3.  The same comments.  They can’t sing, they are conceited, full of themselves, will never make it etc. 

    I see E3 as an edgier One Direction. 

    Time will tell.

  • Karen C

    Adam Lambert, Daughtry, Jennifer Hudson, Carly Rae Jepson, One Direction are non winners who have gone on to huge careers.

    Chris Daughtry and Adam Lambert had a huge amount of buzz coming off the show, though. I don’t think Rolling Stone even will know who E3 is, let alone have them on their cover.   I think One Direction was very popular also coming off their show, and boy bands are very popular in the UK.  Jennifer Hudson and Carly Rae Jepson became popular years later.

    If E3 get signed, there is always a chance their record will do well but I don’t think they have that much popularity coming off X Factor that others who have done well have.

  • iluvai

    She’s fine. But I heard her blaring E3 on her ipod after the show. (I assume I paid for those downloads somehow??)  Anyway, she was texting with her friend during the show and they both were mad. Then she said 5th Harmony was a “put together” group. That doesn’t seem to bother her about 1D! Anyway,  I think I’m going to vote next week for 5th Harmony. ;)

  • http://twitter.com/Girltalkbf AlesheaDominique

    Aww, yay! My sister isn’t home yet and hasn’t seen the show. I’m actually thinking of re-watching it with her when she gets home cause I know she is going to flip when she sees that 5H is safe. 

  • Nedsdag

    She finished third on Nashville Star. The fact that I do not remember the winner’s name proves my point.

  • Nedsdag

    I thought the tweens were on suicide alert over Harry Styles of 1D hooking up with Taylor Swift.

    Perhaps they should be all hot and bothered over that than Empty3 believing in their own BS that they were the next big thing. They coasted the past two weeks and it was only a matter of time before mainstream viewers saw through their act.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    Next week the tweens aren’t even going to remember who Emblem3 is.

  • shell29

    Oh I remember when 1D competed on X Factor UK and there wasn’t much love for them either.  I just think that the timing, the packaging, everything came together perfectly for 1D causing them to have the huge success they’ve had internationally.  I’m not sure if that will happen for E3 but they may be able to find a niche as the “anti-1D”.  I’m not saying that these guys are sure to “flop”.  While I personally don’t think these guys are nearly as “hot” as Simon, E3 and others seem to believe, I do think they have the potential to become one of the X Factor US’s first real success stories.  I just don’t see them being the next huge 1D-type phenomenon that Simon seems to think they can be.

    It’s funny-this season’s X Factor UK boy band Union J also finished in fourth place.  I wonder what the plans are for those guys.  Will they try to make both Union J and Emblem3 happen on both sides of the Atlantic?  We’ll see.

  • sue

    I’m certainly not a tween and I loved Emblem 3. Good luck to them! That was a classy exit and they left on a great performance yesterday.  :)  Can’t wait to see what they do in the future. Anything could happen so I guess 5th Harmony could win next week.  I laugh so hard watching Britney’s reaction when 5th Harmony was announced safe first. That was tv GOLD! Simon did look pissed when his boys were eliminated.  He is like oh crap I might have to crown a middle-aged country guy or Broadway Carly. lols………Now he has to support 5th Harmony. Hey they can be the US Little Mix. 

    Simon probably knew the results in advance of course. His acting was on point. :)

    I’m just really glad Fifth Harmony made it to the finals. I think all of those girls are talented and authentic and could be pop stars. Carly has a career in music, that’s obviously her gift and path, and Tate will be great in the country genre. I hope getting this far will open doors for the Fifth Harmony girls. I wish I knew them a little bit more individually, but they seem so likeable. It would be amazing if they won.

  • elliegrll

    X-Factor last year flop winner was neither white nor male.

    I think that you misread my post, or didn’t read beyond the first part.  I said that the season has been hurt by the decision to reveal the rankings, since it made it look like only two people stood a chance of winning.  

    5th Harmony making the final may not help the situation, but the X Factor, just like AI, needs people to believe that all of the contestants stand an equal chance of winning.

  • iluvai

    You are so right. I don’t get why they revealed the rankings. It’s not a very fun show to watch if “your” favorite doesn’t have a chance at winning.

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    If you want to know 5H more, got to idolforums and check out the “Harmonizers” thread. The fans there have posted tons of interviews and amateur videos of the girls being playful, goofy and just so darn likeable and adorable. I can’t believe this show is barely showing this fun, charming side of them, and that fans have to figure this out through interviews. So glad a performance like “Anything Can Happen” has shown what the girls can be really capable of. :)

  • fantoo1

    I think this paves more way for a Tate victory. I can see 5H and Carly splitting votes.

     I think the teen mags will be all over E3.  No not Rolling Stone but publicity is publicity.  Simon may already have something up his sleeve as far as promo.  We will see soon.

    As someone posted Simon changes the rules as the game is played.

  • http://twitter.com/Loretta31 Loretta

     They are not my personal tatste either.  But when I watch these shows I also like to assess marketability, current music trends and fit as well as vocals, style, fashion etc.

    I just think that E3 has many elements that will add up to success. 

  • Kitwana

    Polarizing is not bad. At least people know about you to care. I don ‘t know about ratings for X-Factor UK the year 1D competed but this year, X-Factor US probably averaged about 8 million viewers with an 18-49 number in the high 2′s or low 3′s. Good but not great. Outside the X-Factor bubble, do people really know about Emblem 3?

    I still think winning matters because in most, but not all cases, the winner gets better promo. There are exceptions, of course, but in those cases where the non-winner enjoyed success, they usually got as much, if not more promo than the winner. JHud is the only real exception.

  • Whatiswrongwithus

    Omg!!! The look on Simon’s face!! Priceless and so worth it!! And 5th Harmony getting into the finals- XF US, YOU HAVE REDEEMED YOURSELF ONCE AGAIN!! Or actually I have to give credit to America for this move lol! You go USA!

  • Kitwana

    The judges certainly want to create the impression that Emblem 3 are teen heartthrobs and I’m sure they have teen fans but I’m not sure if their teen fanbase is as big as Simon would want us to believe. I make the comparison to David Archuleta from Season 7 of Idol. He was all over the teen mags both during and after Season 7. He also appeared on the hottest tween shows at the time in Hannah Montana and I-Carly and toured with a then very hot Demi Lovato. By comparison, Emblem 3 has been virtually invisible. Just scan your teen magazines or popular teen sites like Oceanup or justjaredjr. You won’t find Emblem 3. On the positive side, Emblem 3 will probably be willing to do more of the things you need to do to become a teen idol than David Archuleta like take shirtless pictures, “date” Taylor Swift or trash a hotel room but for now, I really don’t think they are that big among the teens and tweens.

  • Reflects On Life

    Congrats to 5H. Entertainment Gold!  Total wish-fulfillment and voter-empowerment exercise.

    E3 might be “too American”, just as I think that Union J is “too British”, to be international successes, though each could have success in their own countries.

    Could it be that Simon was hoping for success with both E3 & 5H?  Announce early that E3 will get a contract regardless.  This essentially tells the voters that they don’t have to vote for E3, so E3 voters go complacent.  Get 5H to their “peak at the right time” place, and get them the underdog story, the little engine that could.  Just getting to the finals is a win for 5H (ala 1D @ XFUK7).  Now launch them both into the world (ala 1D, Cher Lloyd, Rebecca Ferguson) and see who sticks.

    Bruno Mars – in the recorded version of tonight’s song, Bruno takes on Sting’s tonality and phrasing style.  I always think I’m hearing a new song from The Police, until he gets to the chorus LOL.

  • http://twitter.com/Girltalkbf AlesheaDominique

    Sad Panda. My sister was at her friends house helping her do her hair and she convinced them to turn on XFactor. So I didn’t get her crazy reactions. She was annoyed cause had to explain everything to her friends and how it was a big deal 5H made it. She also said she was throwing around numbers of how many times she voted. But she did come in the house and ran up to me singing. ” Na na na na. How you feel now Simon. You mad ain’t ya.” Then she yammered on about Camilla in 5H and that is when I tuned her out and walked away. She’s now in the kitchen making herself a congratulatory sandwich. She busted out a skillet and everything. She is still dancing and singing. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/5HGXDY5SA4QJRME7OQJXRJYE4M James M.

    I hated hearing them being called DOUCHEBAG3, but it’s TOTALLY worth it if it means seeing Simon PISSED and Fifth Harmony in the Top 3.

    Seriously, people crying, throwing things, acting like their life is over and sending death threats to Fifth Harmony because Emblem3 got eliminated? That’s just stupid. It’s kind of entertaining to see such meltdowns, but my God, it’s also horrifying to see how tween girls do such crazy things so…. normally. Someone who openly says that he or she doesn’t like Justin Bieber would probably need to leave the Earth for their own safety o_O.

    At this point, I really don’t care who wins. I wouldn’t get music from anybody but probably Tate and Lyric 145, but I kinda want Carly to win because she’s the best singer there.

  • http://twitter.com/lucy__luz Luz Mae Salvador

    was not really sure who will get into top 3…but i was sure about 5th harmony and that’s because of their first song last night. I kinda thought of carly and emblem3 being the bottom two…and i was right!!!  i feel so sorry for emblem3 but something is big in store for them, so they have really got nothing to lose…And at least the prediction of emblem3, carly and tate as final 3 did not happen. So it’s lesser boring. hehe!!  Good luck to all of them! GO TATE!!  

  • http://twitter.com/lucy__luz Luz Mae Salvador

    5th harmony must be so thankful for their song choice last night, anything could happen by ellie goulding. that’s the big big reason why they r in the final 3. it was really a beautiful performance. Not a fan of them but when i saw their ellie goulding performance i said that they will really make it to the top 3. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    The finale of XF-UK when 1D competed had 17 milions viewers, almost 1/3 of the country. It’s like a Super Bowl there. Everybody knew 1D. There’s no comparison with the unknown Douchebag3. lol

  • girlygirltoo

    IMO there is nothing edgy about Emblem3. And even if there was,  according to E3 themselves, their style isn’t anything like 1D. They claim they want to be the next Sublime. So they want to be an alt rock/ska group, not a pop act. If that’s the case, I don’t seem them having any connection to 1D going forward — unless of course they are so willing to do anything to try and be successful that they will give up their originality to become 1D type boy band.

    Will they go on to become successful? Who knows? It will be interesting to see if Simon gives them this big buildup (assuming he signs them) now that he sees this result. Just because 1D got this huge push doesn’t mean that E3 (or anyone else off XFUS) will. 

  • http://kristentheyellowlab.blogspot.com/ ZsusK

    I won’t even try to predict whether or not Emblem 3 could be tween-throbs. I’m way too far removed. What I do know is that the guys tweens tend to go for tend to be “safe,” as in coming across as youngish or semi-feminine in appearance. There’s a reason Paul McCartney was the most popular Beatle amongst young girls back in the 60′s and that George was “The Scary One.” I’m not sure that Emblem 3 gives off the right vibe. I mean, I look at One Direction, and they all seem kind of small and cute and high-schoolish with the curly hair and what not. Emblem 3 come across as a pack of college frat dudes. Too old for the tweens. But, again, I know nothing. 

  • iluvai

    They are so cute and sweet. This kind of exposure helps fans make a connection with the artist. I’m not sure if this was how it worked in the old days, but now it’s good to be relateable and down to earth. The show should be showing how adorable 5H is. The bubble gum dresses and bows were a start to make people notice them and their voices. 

  • girlygirltoo

    I will give props to Emblem3 for their sweet reaction when 5th Harmony got announced as safe. They looked genuinely happy for the girls.

  • Kitwana

    Thanks Leandro. That’s what I thought – XFactor is more popular in the UK than in the US. I think X-Factor wilgene lucky to get 10 million for its finale.

    On another note, I have to ask again, what is wrong with Britney? Those pictures are scary. Britney may have gotten $15 million for the X-Factor gig but I think it may have destroyed her reputation.

    It seems like these music reality shows can’t produce stars anymore. It looks like X Factor UK got really lucky with Cher Lloyd and One Direction. Jury’s still out on how successful Scotty and P2 will be in the long run for American Idol. Kelly, Carrie, and Daughtry seem like it.

    But it seems like even the best singers are never successful any more. Cher Lloyd wasn’t the best singer during her season (although she was my favorite), and One Direction were probably the worst during theirs (I’ve always disliked them).

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1638805698 Jason Scott

    Agreed. The only one I remember is Dinah Jane, who I wish had been a solo singer. But this group is terrific. They could be huge with the right songs and promotion. Plus, they are so freaking adorable and very relatable.

  • hercules40

    I admit it, it was me, I voted for 5H like crazy all night long, through all forms of voting, until I reached my limit. I think these girls have potential, they’re likable, lovable, and I would buy their album. I would not buy an E3 album.

    On another note, I have to ask again, what is wrong with Britney?

    Britney has bipolar disorder with periods of psychosis. She is probably taking several medications including a mood stabilizer, like lithium, and possibly some type of antipsychotic medication. She is numbed out and who knows how many brain cells she fried along the way with her past use of illegal drugs. She could have even had electroshock therapy treatments when she was going through her really bad episodes years ago.

    Fifth Harmony won’t last.  If the first record bombs, the group will dissolve.  If any girl get an offer to make a solo album, she’ll drop her “sisters” in a heartbeat.  Makes sense since all five wanted to be solo artists.

  • Mateja Praznik

    Well, not surprising, really. Fifth Harmony were in the bottom 2 last week, that certainly gave them a bump. And Emblem3′s songs were just dumb picks. Simon didn’t do enough to secure their  place in the final.

    Anyway, here is what readers of British portal Digital Spy think of the last 4 acts:

    http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/ustv/s141/the-x-factor-us/news/a445145/x-factor-usa-semi-final-poll-result-carly-rose-wins-over-50-percent-of-vote.html

  • HKfan

    I only get to watch Xfactor US on these videos and I don’t have a favourite in the race. But I don’t get all the hype with Emblem 3…..I just find them so average, they don’t have any ‘it factor’ at all to me. Their voices are nothing special either, just so ordinary. The 2 younger ones are a bit nicer than the one who likes to show off his abs, he really does come across as a douche, apologies to whoever it was that said they don’t like them being called that, but he is, and the others are a bit. I know a lot of kids that age, as its the same age as my son, and none of them act like Drew(?).
    Tate seems like a nice guy, but no more special than most other country singing guys out there.
    Carly Rose whilst talented is just too young, I think all these shows should raise the limit to 16 at least, even 18.
    5th Harmony, seem OK and I think will improve a lot if they stick together.Probably wouldn’t buy any of their music though.

  • blackberryharvest

    A lot of people have talked about how the X Factor is a better platform if you want to have a pop career, but none of the top 3 are pop material. Tate is obviously country, Carly needs a few more years to grow, and 5th harmony isn’t marketable. I don’t care that boy bands have made a comeback-girl groups haven’t, and I don’t think XFUS is going to change that.

  • http://www.facebook.com/bill.mitchell.3954546 Bill Mitchell

    Am I the only one who thinks “5th Harmony” is a really trite, contrived, obvious and silly name for a group?

    Looks like Carly almost fell victim to the “Curse of the bad song choice” but survived.  On pure talent she should win but hard to beat the country music voting block.

  • Valarie

    Laughing my *** off at Simon Cowell. He knew his pimpage of 5th Harmony would knock another act out of contention. He never dreamed it would be his own act. As one who hates Simon for his manipulations, I enjoyed seeing him look like he was about to puke.

    I hate country music, but love Tate. Go figure. He reminds me of Garth Brooks, who is one country star I always loved.

    Unlike some, I wouldn’t automatically put 5H in 3rd place next week….America sail loves an underdog and 5H is more than capable of a few surprises

    Well. lets face it TATE will win. Really, Carly is the rare talent here and it will not get rewarded. These singing contest are in the bag for any man that can sing a bit and look down at the floor and “appear” humble occasionally!(SPOILER ALERT/prediction-after winning and becoming a country fave-his “small town” attitude will melt away and I see a divorce and all that humble pie gone and he will marry some country starlet half his age!)

    LAST…good thing Miss America and Miss USA do not have ONE MAN in it or there would never be a female winner again! EVEN just one male contestant would destroy the outcome every year!…lol…….

    Britney Spears was full of LOL’s last night. She makes the greatest stank faces. Just wish she could articulate better. Who is dressing her? Oh, and doing her hair? She is like a medicated Barbie doll. Compared to other country crooners Tate is absolutely nothing special. In the XFactor line up, part of the best of a bad lot. I still don’t get why they really didn’t appear to promote Melanie Amaro. The only one who had press that I read during the year was Chris Renee. Why Carley Rose needed this show is beyond me. She was doing quite well without it. I like 5th Harmony and with work I believe they can go somewhere. You know Simon is signing them too no matter what the outcome. I could care less who wins but love the entertainment factor. Levato is a dud too (IMHO).

    Likeability wins!  Now just get rid of Britney!

  • maymirabella

    Emblem 3 has some major hollywood connections in film amd music between their dad,uncle, grandpa. Yet show made it look like they were poor and struggling kids. Never liked their attitude,always screamed to me they were trust fund entitled,indulged.

  • maymirabella

    Jennifer Hudson has done well and Kellie Pickler but you are right,few of these shows producing long term stars and big names

  • maymirabella

    I think xfactor uk does well therr, while here Idol gets the best ratings

  • kmd23

     I would not be so sure that Simon is signing 5th Harmony after the show is over. The only act that he made very clear that he is signing is E3 and of course he has to sign the winner of the show(which will be Tate) next week. Go Tate Nation! lol.

    5th Harmony usually gets way more Youtube views than Emblem3. They usually are among the top in youtube views among all the contestants, minus Carly. Theve also trended a bunch on twitter throughout the competition. Not to mention a lot of their fans are international. Also knowing the success of Little Mix in the UK, if Simon was smart he would definitely sign Fifth Harmony.

  • kmd23

    I looks to me that the raw data of dial idol was fairly accurate this week. They are not always right anymore but I think they were this week. They had 5thH and E3 close in the voting and I am sure they were. http://x.dialidol.com/asp/predictions/predictions.asp

    You are million percect correct. I agree!

  • tucker davis

    I believe Simon knew exactly what was going to happen, and the ‘shock elimination’ was orchestrated for publicity. If 5thH got the ax, absolutely no one would be talking about X Factor this morning. Now all the ‘news’ have a headline about XF. It was all done to get people talking & tuning in next week.  And it seems to have worked somewhat…
    Guys win most of these shows because the great majority of the TV audience that watches reality shows are females of all ages. I’ve known very few males who watch, & even less who actually vote. The ones I know who did were into singing or drama themselves. Anyway, that’s my opinion about both topics.

  • elliegrll

    The problem with Carly is that she comes off like a little girl, who is trying out for a Broadway musical.  She’s talented, but at her age, it’s hard to see her as someone who could launch a singing career right now.  5th Harmony and Tate are pretty much the only two acts from this season who are ready to make an album, and who stand a chance at being commercially successful right when the show ends.

  • irockhard

    5H’s problem is that they have no sex appeal. Someone correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t the last successful US girl group the Pussycat Dolls?

  • http://twitter.com/IkeMendes Henrique Mendes

    well they are 16 yr old … I hope they don’t sexualize them

  • irockhard

    Are all of them that young?

    Problem is if they want them to break huge, they’ll probably have to, at least a little bit.

  • yclept

    Ally is 19 – the rest of them are 15-16.

  • Kitwana

    Elliegirl, if you looked at Bieber before his marketing makeover and “swagger” coach, you would not think he is commercial or marketable either. All Carly needs is good marketing support and a willingness to do whatever is necessary to be successful. I think she has that willingness. Give Carly her version of a swagger coach, sexually suggestive clothing, racy lyrics and a tumultuous relationship with a Justn Bieber clone like Cody Simpson and she should be plenty marketable.

    Bieber’s “swagger coach” has manged to turn him into a diplomatic laughingstock. Usher Raymond would know enough to show up to a meeting with the Prime Minister in a suit instead of overalls.

    And giving a 13-year-old girl sexually suggestive clothing and a “boyfriend” to market her is a pretty appalling suggestion. It would be appalling if she were 15, but 13 is beyond the pale.

  • chillj

    Bieber showed up in overalls for a meeting with the PM?  Funny.  Funnier if they were barely covering his buns, which is his preferred  fashion look.

  • http://twitter.com/happylittlefish Amy Beth

    Does Britney have a touching other people phobia? She seemed emotionally invested, evidenced by the face that launched 1000 GIFs. Yet when Carly was announced as the last finalist, there was no hug or even a high five.

  • chillj

    I agree; Fifth Harmony is trite, contrived, obvious and silly.  But I feel the same way about One Dimension and Emblem Three.   Creative must have been on strike when the PTB named these groups; they are Pablum-y.

  • chillj

    I believe what actually happened is that at some point The voice stole the bubblegum dresses for its youthful female singers.

    Justin was in his concert attire when the PM surprised him by showing up at one of his concerts in Canada to give him an award.

    Standtotheright: If you visit most suburban malls, you’ll have no problem finding 13 or 14 year old girls in sexually suggestive clothing. Yes, it may be appalling but it may work. Bieber has shown that if you are willing to do ANYTHING for fame – go shirtless, grab and rub your crotch on stage or dry hump a dancer, wear ridiculous clothes, “date” Selena Gomez, constantly talk about what you look for in a girl, talk like you’re from the streets when you actually come from a quiet small town in Canada, etc., you maximize your chances of success. I think what has held back a lot of the Idols is their refusal to do these sorts of things. Other than Kris Allen, for example, I don’t recall any of the male WGWG winners circulating shirtless pictures of themselves. With the number of female fans they have, that would be a marketing no brainer.

  • standtotheright

    My understanding is that it wasn’t a surprise; it was a formal meet-and-greet session after the show. If his management couldn’t figure that that he needed to change for pictures taken with Harper, then they should be fired.

    I disagree. I think that what got him his sucess originally was that he looked like a sweet young kid who was trying to be a good dancer like his Idol, thus making parents okay with buying his music for their screaming tweeners. And now said tweeners are holding on while he acts like an entitled arrogant toerag because that’s their identity; it doesn’t mean that he’s going to have a long-term career once they all go to college.

    At any rate, while it infuriates me as a feminist, the fact remains that young girls aggressively displaying a sexualized image gets a lot more social criticism than young boys at the same age. I don’t see it as a winning strategy for CS or anyone else under 18.

  • Keyera Mullins

    Britney’s face is priceless. Wonder how that made Fifth Harmony feel when they saw her reaction.

  • Ratna12

    Hmm, Kris Allen did not circulate shirtless pictures of himself, I don’t think (I wish).
