X Factor 3 – Charleston Auditions Press Conference (VIDEO)

Are you wondering what kind of chemistry the new X Factor will have? Watch this raw footage featuring Kelly Rowland, Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and Paulina Rubio as the answer questions at a press conference during last week’s auditions in Charleston, SC.

  • Demi and Kelly make fun of Simon’s fashion sense. “I love how he changes it up with his fashion,” says Demi.
  • The “women hate pretty girls” trope is back. Ugh. Simon says he’s the “sole personnel on the panel who can put any pretty girls through. 
  • Simon touts a female country singer named Brandi Love from Charleston. “She was just brilliant,” he says.
  • There were some really horrible auditions too. One man butchered “When a Man Loves a Woman” and he was “deadly serious.”
  • Paulina would tell a hopeful not to take themselves so seriously. And don’t always listen to Simon.
  • Simon hints that the middle rounds will be more exciting,and different than what the other shows are doing. “It’s going to be a very dramatic show.”
  • Demi says the panel is more fun and relaxed this year. Simon is having a lot more fun.
  • So much pimping of Fifth Harmony: Simon says he loves last year’s winner, Tate Stevens, but he believes the REAL winners of the show will be his girl group, Fifth Harmony, who came in 3rd place. Kelly has heard some of their music, and is really excited for them. She thinks it’s time for girl groups to make a comeback.  Demi says they are very very humble.
