Even though the boys of Emblem3 were shown the door last week, their ‘X Factor’ mentor Simon has spoken candidly about his desire to keep them in the family! Could he use the two-night finale to announce his plans for them?

Simon Cowell loves to stay in business with X Factor acts he finds talented, even if they don’t ultimately win America’s vote. When his boy band phenomenon Emblem3 was axed from the competition on Dec. 13, the boys may have felt like it was the end of the road for them — but Simon had already told reporters he had big plans for them!

Speaking with reporters backstage after the Dec. 6 results show, Simon was asked if the group would be signed, in some capacity, to the music mogul’s record label after the show reached its end. He replied, “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.”

With the show ending tomorrow, Dec. 20, Simon only has two more chances to hold true to his word and make a big announcement on live TV!

Emblem3’s Choice To Win

After the boys were cut from the game, they opened up to reporters about who they felt would take the top prize, throwing their support behind the competition’s only male artist left. Drew Chadwick, one third of the group, explained why he was rooting for Tate Stevens.

“Tate is a little older and is amazing. He has been playing music for a long time and is a family man with a great heart. He has pure intentions and is a good guy. I feel like he really deserves it. He needs a break and I love him. I love Carly [Rose Sonenclar] and Fifth Harmony, but I think he is the most deserving. That’s why he’s doing it right now and why he does it — he can’t hide it. This would make his life. He’s awesome and a great guy, so he deserves it.”

Do you think Simon will announce that he’s signing Emblem3 to his record label during the X Factor finale, HollywoodLifers?
