Emblem3 Look Hella Cute In Debut Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Forget Chloe! Drew Chadwick is the one that I want. When the broad-shouldered member of Emblem3 appeared on The X Factor, I found him so douchey, I couldn’t stand him. He’s probably still as douchey, but it’s amazing what a little scruff and a striped tee instead of his go-to tanks can do for a boy’s image. Because now, he’s smokin’ hot. Simon Cowell, you’ve done good ;)

If you weren’t a fan of Emblem3 before, you probably won’t be after checking out their music video for “Chloe (You’re The One I Want).” It’s tailor-made for their teeny bopper fans and lecherous old men like myself. I kid. I’m not that old ;)

The Ray Kay-directed clip features the Huntington Beach trio fooling around in their glitzy dressing room while “beige” girls are ignored/teased by the mean girls in alternating vignettes. In the end, the less-than-popular girls get their revenge as they’re the ones to join Emblem3 on stage, while those snooty bitches get turned away by the bouncers. Check out the clip below.

Just a day after FOX made the official announcement, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio joined Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell at the judges table. The two freshwomen arrived on their first day of their new gig on time. I couldn’t say the same for Cowell.

Three beautiful ladies and Simon is the one who’s taking the longest to get ready. In actuality, the Brit judge kept the three ladies waiting due to traffic problems as a result of flooding caused by heavy rains in the area. The FOX reality show began its first day of filming Season 3 in Charleston, South Carolina on Tuesday May 21.

As the ladies waited for their boss, Kelly joked, “Ooooh, I’ll be Simon,” as she plopped herself in his seat. When Cowell finally arrived, he asked the audience, “Is it a coincidence that when I arrive, everything gets better?” That cocky Brit ;)

Speaking of seating assignments, I was a little surprised that Rowland received the coveted spot by Cowell. Given his chemistry with Lovato, I thought she’d remain in her slot. Perhaps, during the audition process the show will play around with the seating arrangement to determine the best fit. Check out more photos from the first day of filming below.

Meet Simon Cowell’s X Factor Angels

In: Donovan, TV Shows

FOX is expected to make a formal announcement tomorrow when production begins in Charleston, N.C., but EW.com is confirming the official judging lineup for The X Factor Season 3. Unlike previous seasons, or any singing show for that matter, the panel will consist of three ladies and one man. The complete opposite of The Voice’s current format of three men and one woman. I’m sure Simon Cowell won’t mind sharing the spotlight with three talented and attracted women.

As previously reported, it appears Kelly Rowland is heading back to the X Factor family. The 32-year-old singer previously sat on the panel on the UK version, the year Little Mix won. Find out who the third judge is below. Here’s a hint: Cowell is adding a little bit of spice.

Union J Drops Debut Music Video

In: Donovan, Music, Totally GAY!

Watch out One Direction, you have some boy band competition from your very own X Factor family. Union J even has their very own Harry Styles-looking bloke in the form of George Shelley. That’s where the similarity ends though. This boy band is only a quartet, has an openly-gay singer in the group and for the most part, friends prior to the show. Shelly was added to the trio ( known then as Triple J) once they hit the judges’ homes portion of the competition.

In their brand new clip, Josh Cuthbert, Jaymi Hensley, JJ Hamblett and Shelley do what hipster boys their age do- buy vinyl records, skateboard, shop, ride their bikes and get their hair did at the barber shop. Taking a page from their real-life journey, the boys enter an open mic contest. Hopefully for them, they end up better than their fourth place finish on the show. Check out the clip below. It’s kinda odd that they debuted it now since their single doesn’t officially hit iTunes til June 2.

If you thought Heidi Klum joining America’s Got Talent as a judge was odd, this might just put you over the edge. Clearly, Simon Cowell is going with a different approach as a possible replacement for the departing Britney Spears. You can’t get more out-of-the-box than this. The 53-year-old Brit is very interested with this actress who was once a teen queen on the small screen and on the silver one. Find out who might be joining Demi Lovato and Cowell on The X Factor judging panel below.

Back in February, there were rumblings that Khloe Kardashian wasn’t coming back for the third season of The X Factor. FOX just released a statement officially announcing the 28-year-old reality star’s departure from the singing competition.

“Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to co-host The X Factor,” the show’s producers said in a statement. “We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”

Staying on board though is Mario Lopez. No word if another personality will join him to co-host Season 3, but most likely he’ll do it solo. Having two hosts was completely unnecessary, IMHO. That said, I didn’t completely hate Khloe in that role. Her wardrobe malfunctions, awkward hosting skills and even more awkward on-air flirtations with Simon Cowell were somewhat entertaining to watch.

“I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of The X Factor,” said Cowell in a statement. “Hosting a live show and keeping the judges – especially Demi – in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back.”

Will You Miss Khloe Kardashian From The X Factor?

Will you miss her? Do you think Mario can do the gig all by himself? I hope they don’t bring Lopez until the live performances. I actually quite enjoyed the audition process and boot camp portions without a host. It had that Hills-like quality about it. Don’t you agree? Sound off below.

Compared to last year, it’s been relatively quiet on The X Factor casting front. Before Britney Spears and Demi Lovato officially came on board, practically every pop star’s name was mentioned as a possible replacement for Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul. This year, with exception to Cheryl Cole, there really hasn’t been anyone I can recall as a rumored potential judge.

With so many singing competitions on the air, not to mention in the UK and Australia, the pool of interested musicians wanting to judge is very limited. Maybe that explains this potential rumor. That, or musicians might think the FOX show is a sinking ship and don’t want any part of it. Find out who’s reportedly in the mix below.

Emblem3 Debut First Single

In: Donovan, Music

Next to Fifth Harmony, Emblem3 was the other act I was rooting for on the second season of The X Factor. Sure Drew Chadwick aka the broad shouldered one was beyond douchey with his assortment of tank tops and gratuitous flexing, but there was something appealing about the three of them. Keaton Stromberg’s Tourette’s-looking dance moves were adorable and older bro Wesley was just cute period. Given their appeal to the tween demo, not surprisingly Simon Cowell signed them immediately. The Brit knows he has a cash cow when he sees one.

The Huntington Beach trio debuted their first single during On-Air with Ryan Seacrest. “Chloe (You’re The One That I Want)” is exactly what you’d expect from them. It’s poppy fun and in the vein of Blink 182, LFO, Sum 41 and all those other trio boybands from the early 2000s. The track tells a tale of a girl named Chloe with a really hot sister, but it’s Chloe they pine after and not the one everyone wants. Take a listen below.
