Emblem3: Demi Lovato has a crush on us
'X Factor' trio tries to explain judge's recent harsh critiques
"X Factor" finalists Emblem3 insist that the reason judge Demi Lovato has been so tough in her critiques of them lately is because she has a massive crush on the boys. The California trio wooed the "Skyscraper" singer from the moment they sang an original song for their first audition. But now that they're fighting for victory, Lovato has been exceptionally hard on them.
On Wednesday's performance show, she likened them to a "downgraded version of the Jonas Brothers five years ago," which was just the latest harsh comment for the band. But the skater boys told the Hollywood Reporter that they know the reasoning behind her feedback. Drew Chadwick quipped, "You know what it is? She’s got an old-school, school-girl crush, where the only way she knows how to flirt is by being mean. But she just wants the attention. She has a shrine of our faces in her closet." And while Lovato insists she just wants to be straightforward with the acts, Emblem3's coach Simon Cowell has continuously disagreed with her comments, causing frequent quarrels between the two.
Chadwick says, "They're going at it, and it's not even about us." Bandmate Keaton Stromberg adds, "When they're going at it, we feel like we've developed a pretty big fan base, and we can do a lot after the show. So, whatever happen,s happens. We're not going to get attached to anything because attachment is the source of all suffering." The beach boys of Emblem3 have made it to the semi-finals, after making the cut for the final four on Thursday. They join country singer Tate Stevens, Carly Rose Sonenclar and Fifth Harmony.
"The X Factor" airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
Boys: can you demonstrate an "ollie" next time? That's a skateboard move!
There guys are at best a wanna-be One Direction takeoff. Simon already has a #1 boy band. What does he need with another? Why would he even want to compete with himself? Even he looks bored by them. Honestly, they only sound good when they have the choir behind them because it adds harmony.
Fifth Element is at least slightly different - being that they are female. You can hear harmony in their arrangements too so I would think they have a better shot.
Carly Rose is AMAZING! She still needs to be developed - taught how to dance and sing at the same time, etc.... Saying she's a child is like saying Brittany, Demi, Christina A., or Salena had no future because they were just kids. It just means she has way more time to be a star.
Say what you like about these guys, but how come their picture was chosen for every article and blog I've read this week? Even, that doggone Ken Barnes guy who loves Demi so much, he thinks they are next worst to Cece? Even, he posts their picture. Jillian? Their picture. This one? Emblem3.
Carly has a great voice, but she's a little girl. You really think everyone will rush to buy her CD? All she has to do is bat her eyes and give one of those expressions like "for me? really?" I'm doubtful. Yes, she plays piano--I wish the show would let us hear her perform with it--as they do with Emblem. You know who's dull? that fat country guy, Tate, that's who. The kids are pining across the country, on these emails to Santa, 'PLEASE, Santa, send us a new Garth Brooks who does Bon Jovi covers and looks like my uncle.' I don't think so.
