Simon Cowell told reporters after last night’s X Factor results show that he wants to sign Emblem3, even if they don’t win.
“I think there’s a pretty good chance. I’m not going to let anyone else get them.” Adding, “There’ll be some pretty big announcements at the end of the show.”
The boys, Wesley Stromberg, Keaton Stromberg and Drew Chadwick were super happy to hear the news:
“That makes me feel very good,” said Wesley, the birthday boy with stars in his eyes. “He’s probably got his poker face on. He just wants us to focus on what’s going on so he’s probably not telling us that on purpose but this is awesome. That’s super cool. We’re probably gonna do better now actually, that’s motivation.”
What kind of album will the boys make?
“We want it to be like the last Sublime album that was ever released,” said Drew. “The one with Bradley [Norwell],” clarified Wesley. Added Keaton, “We want it to be as real as possible.”
Good luck with THAT! Heh. Via The Hollywood Reporter
Also, don’t expect a leader board at the end of next week’s results show:
But don’t expect to see any more weekly rankings. The next time the audience will see which act finished #1 will be when the winner is announced on Dec. 20. “We have to,” Cowell said about stopping the rankings next week. “The reason we did it tonight was because there was a change and we wanted to tell everyone there was a change. Otherwise everyone would’ve assumed Carly would’ve been #1. But that’s been the excitement of showing the leaderboard, it does change.”
He probably does not want to telegraph the eventual winner. But that horse is already out of the barn. He’s also going to make sure the X Factor schedule isn’t a mess next year. To that end, he plans to cancel the world series. Just kidding! I can’t figure out how else he would solve the show’s gnarly scheduling problems.
Also, Simon suggested the PERFECT career move to the newly eliminated CeCe Frey
Cowell doesn’t believe the judges were overly harsh on Frey, who was finally eliminated tonight after several close calls, and has an interesting idea for what she should do post-”X Factor”: “CeCe’s a tough nut. You know what you’re entering into [when you audition for the show]. Everyone knows her name now. I said to her tonight she should do her own reality show. [That] didn’t go down particularly well. [She said] ‘I’m a singer!’ I said you can do both.”
Maybe Simon will produce it! Via Zap2it
