The in-love finalists spoke with HollywoodLife.com about their stiffest competition and making judge Kelly Rowland cry!
The X Factor‘s third season finale is fast approaching — a winning act will be crowned live Dec. 19 — but finalists Alex & Sierra don’t seem too worried. In fact, as long as they’re performing as a romantic unit, nothing can faze them! “Because we’ve been dating each other for so long, and have known each other for so long, we know who we were before any of this started,” Sierra Deaton told HollywoodLife.com after the Dec. 11 taping. “We’re going to keep each other grounded.”
Added Alex Kinsey, “There’s no reason to dwell about things that have already happened or to stress about things that are going to happen.”
And when we asked how they feel about the fans being so obsessed with their relationship, Alex had only this to say:
“I think they love the love more than they love us, honestly!”
Kelly Rowland’s Advice To Alex & Sierra
We also caught up with Kelly Rowland, who was moved to tears during Alex & Sierra’s Dec. 11 performance of “Gravity.” Beyond just that performance, Kelly told us she loves the positive energy the couple radiates through their music:
Nothing has tainted them yet, and it’s just so precious to watch. It’s just innocence with love. They’re young. Ain’t nobody messed up yet. … Everybody says the secret to a relationship is communication … but I think that it’s really important that they continue to communicate with each other. If they like the song, hate the song, business stuff, whatever. They just need to keep those lines of communication open with each other because now they’re going into business and that’s another tricky dynamic for the relationship. I just really wish them communication skills. I’ll buy you a book!
