Following ‘The X Factor’ finale on Dec. 20, Simon spoke to HollywoodLife.com and said that even though Emblem3 didn’t win, they will still be signed. Will Simon be the one to sign them?
On Dec. 20, Tate Stevens reigned victorious as he became the winner of the second season of The X Factor. The country crooner may be taking home the top prize of the recording contract, but he’s not the only one who is going to get a record deal! Top judge Simon Cowell revealed to HollywoodLife.com that he believes a certain group will be just fine, admitting that cute boy band Emblem3 will get a recording contract – and potentially with Simon’s record label!
SIMON’S PLANS FOR EMBLEM3
As previously reported by HollywoodLife.com, Simon admitted that he had plans for Emblem3, after they were shockingly eliminated from the competition on Dec. 13. Simon said he believed they would be signed. “I think there’s a pretty good chance. I’m not going to let anyone else get them. There will be some pretty big announcements at the end of the show.”
At the Dec. 20 final, Simon all but confirmed that he will be the one to sign them! When asked if they would get a record deal, he said, “If we don’t sign them, someone else will,” and then he said to “watch this space.” How exciting!
Simon also spoke about how much he will miss fellow judge L.A. Reid, who has quit the show, but he pointed out that they will still work together at Sony. Simon further fueled rumors that Sony will be the ones to offer Emblem3 a recording contract when he said that L.A. has “other artists signing with him very soon.”
Don’t tease us, Simon! We want an Emblem3 album soon!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Simon and L.A. sign Emblem3?
