Watch Emblem3’s latest performance and vote: Is this the new One Direction?
Simon Cowell‘s two baby boy bands are having a play date! One Direction will take The X Factor stage Nov. 8, where they’ll come face to face with Emblem3, Simon’s new pop outfit, for the first time. HollywoodLife.com caught up with the guys of Emblem3 — Drew Chadwick, and Wesley and Keaton Stromberg — after the Nov. 7 taping, and they told us they “can’t wait” to meet 1D.
“I heard they know how to party” Drew told reporters. “We’ve been cooped up in that mansion for weeks, so we need to let loose!”
Wesley added, “They seem pretty cool, and I’ll ask them how this whole process worked for them.”
Emblem3 and Simon drew criticism from Demi Lovato on the Nov. 7 episode of The X Factor for using the beat from 1D’s “What Makes You Beautiful” under their mashup of “My Girl” and “California Gurls.”
Meanwhile, Simon has previously told HollywoodLife.com it’s “doubtful” that Emblem3 will be performing a 1D hit anytime soon.
