The X Factor’s Emblem3 has just released their new single “Chloe (The One That I Want),” on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show the morning of April 15.
This song falls into that pop-rock genre, describing their music as “a blend between Maroon 5, Sublime and kind of that 1D pop.” Just Jared Jr.
What do you think of their single?
“Chloe (The One That I Want)” by Emblem3 is now available on iTunes.

Well, looks like everything you thought was real on the X Factor has turned out to be a COMPLETE LIE. Because according to TMZ, the places in which Simon Cowell and Britney Spears are shown to live in are actually prop houses.
While it’s pretty obvious why these celebs aren’t willing to show their humble abodes on television, it turns out that “Cowell’s Miami pad” actually belongs to New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez. In fact, the house is still on the market selling for $38 million.
Spears on the other hand, is shown to have a Malibu home. But because people are clearly interested in finding out where she lives, her real home is in Calabasas, which is many miles away.
Well well well. Isn’t this a
BIG surprise? I never thought a reality TV show would lie SO MUCH.
My guess is that none of the judges actually live in their X Factor homes. Because really, why would anybody (a celebrity especially), want to let everyone in on their already publicly-followed lives?
If you were wondering why #Panda was trending hardcore on Twitter last night, you probably missed one of the best moments on The X-Factor EVER. Here’s why contestant Panda ROCKS.
1. She got out of the hospital the day before auditioning because she had pneumonia. Two f*cks weren’t given about it and she wouldn’t let anything hold her back.
2. She’s in love with with Simon Cowell and we’re pretty sure she’s the only woman who could handle his “unique” personality. Demi Lovato even tweeted: “Alright…who else thinks I should get
@SimonCowell a “Single” necklace so he can match Panda?”
3. Panda’s name origin is very unique. Her mom had her while she was in jail. Her cell mate was white so they came up with the name Panda. Hm…
4. She has a spectacular old-timey voice. She got a yes from every judge (even Britney Spears).
5. Immediately following the show she had to be transported to the hospital because she overworked herself. Simon considered putting Demi in quarantaine because she hugged Panda and pneumonia is contagious. Meanwhile, all Panda worried about what Simon would think of her.
Watch her audition here:
A while ago, Britney Spears shared on Twitter that she’d love to learn Psy’s horse-riding dance in his music video for “Gangnam Style.” Leave it to Ellen to hook the pair up on her show. After Ellen’s interview with Spears and her fellow X-Factor judge Simon Cowell, the talk show host surprised the pop star by bringing out the man himself (Psy) to teach her his unique choreography.
Britney (who looked GORG BTW) picked up the moves pretty fast, despite wearing a tight pink dress that couldn’t have been easy to dance in. The video is quickly slaying the Internet.
Watch it here:
Simon Cowell did One Direction fans a total solid by telling Demi Lovato to keep her hands of Niall Horan, because 1) he’s “pure” and 2) he’s obviously OURS. I mean, the two would be adorable together but we’re still holding out for our chance with the Irish member of One Direction because it will happen, right? RIGHT?
While Demi assures him in this X-Factor promo that she’s not dating anyone for an entire year, Simon doesn’t seem to believe her.
Niall and Demi reignited rumors that they’re romantically involved, when they were spotted after this year’s VMAs at Harry Morton’s Pink Taco in Century City. Just before the awards show he told Access Hollywood that Lovato is his celebrity crush. This is the second time the pair have had to dodge rumors since they were rumored to be involved at the beginning of summer.
While we’d hate to see Niall go off the market, Demi and him see like a good match!
Watch it here:
The Taylor Swift and Harry Styles dating rumor started after an interview in which 1D rib their bandmate about the country singer. Turns out, they exchanged numbers after meeting at the Kids Choice Awards in the U.S. ”We met in American and she’s very nice.” But he kept relatively mum when the Herald Sun interviewer prodded for more.
Styles and his bandmate Zayn Malik were both interviewed while in Sydney, Australia, where the clear focus was on dating.
Styles admitted in the interview that he has a thing for older woman. First there was Caroline Flack, the Xtra Factor co-host he dated, who happens to be 14 years older than him. Reportedly, when he was in Australia he was turned down by an engaged journalist named Elle Halliwell, who’s seven years older. Then this whole Taylor Swift thing? Well, she’s technically his senior too, even though she’s only 22.
Luckily for Styles, Simon Cowell didn’t impose a “love ban” on the members of the group. He and Malik made sure to shoot down those rumors.
“Not true. It would have been a bit rough,” Malik said. “We work hard and we play hard, so that would have been a bit rough.
”We’re normal guys. If we find a girl attractive… if you meet a girl you meet a girl. If you exchange numbers then whatevs..”
And as for the name change? The two guys say they’re not really sure what’s happening but they refuse to change the name One Direction just because another band in the U.S. has the same title.
“We’re not changing our name. We don’t know what’s going to happen but we’re not changing our name.” [Source]

I hear the grumbles already. Britney Spears, the new X Factor judge? Really, can she string together a sentence?
Simon Cowell approached the popstar to serve as a judge on the next season of X Factor, after Paula Abdul, Steve Jones and Nicole Scherzinger all got the ax. The deal is expected to be closed sometime next week. The payoff could be as much as $10 million!
I understand the logic behind the move. Spears brings a devout fanbase to the show and the public will probably tune in just to see if she screws it up or makes another comeback. She’s also been a successful recording artist for the past decade, whether you like her or not.
The thing is, will she be a strong judge or mentor? She’s typically not comfortable on camera (we all remember her shaving her head) so how will she interact with the competitors? AND she’s known more for performing rather than for her voice. So if she’s not mentoring a group that doesn’t rely on strong performance, how will she fare?
Anyway, we’ll see next week whether she seals the deal and we’ll find out in the next month who the third judge will be — so far names like Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey have been floating around. It seems like the controversy over judges is getting more attention than the show itself.
Will you be watching?
In this viral video, Runty the dog plays the piano while
howling singing. I always thought these videos were incredibly cute but if you actually lived with Runty it might be a little harsh on the ears after a while. I mean, if I’m going to go all Simon Cowell, the harmony just isn’t there. But he gets bonus points for performance.
Barbara Walters always wraps up the year by announcing the top ten people that have fascinated her the most.
She just unveiled the top 9, according to ABC News.
Royal family member Pippa Middleton made the list. She certainly made heads turn during the Royal Wedding this summer.
Another Brit, Simon Cowell made the list, probably for his controversial roles as judges on popular talent shows. And maybe for finally joining the Twitterverse.
Then there’s the two actors who play gay parents on the hit show “Modern Family”, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet.
Captain of the New York Yankee, Derek Jeter also made the list. It’s probably under her contract to include at least one athlete every year.
Donal Trump trumped other business tycoons by appearing on Barbaras list. I bet he paid her a pretty penny for it.
Katy Perry also fascinated Barbara and the rest of the world with her lavish wedding to Russell Brand and all her number one hit singles off of “Teenage Dreams”.
Barbara also included the entire Kardashian family on the year-end list, hence the photo posted above. I think she misinteruperated “fascninating” for “annoying”, though.
The number one person who was the most fascinating person of 2011 will remain a mystery, until her special airs on ABC Wednesday December 14.
Though many believed the show was suffering, ratings picked up during the first live performances of this season on last week’s episode of The X Factor, and has now become the “No 1. reality show on broadcast television this fall,” with more than 13 million viewers, according to Fox. The talent-search show beat out other hit reality shows such as Survivor and Dancing with the Stars. Really? I would never have guessed…
“I am absolutely thrilled with the news,” says Executive Producer Simon Cowell, according to E!. “I have loved making the show and I want to thank Fox, our sponsors and most importantly, the fans for supporting The X Factor.”
With the second set of live performances airing on Wednesday evening, FOX will soon find out if they made the right decision or not. Let’s just hope the show can keep up its ratings!
To all of you competing on the X-Factor, Simon Cowell has revealed what he is really looking for in the winner – Snooki. Yes, Cowell told MTV News that Snooki from Jersey Shore has the “x-factor.”
Simon explained that during auditions, he was extremely excited to hit New Jersey to find the next Snooki, and he thinks Jersey Shore is an amazing show.
“I thought it was genius, absolute genius,” Cowell said of his initial reaction to the fist-pumping housemates. “And whether you like the show or not, these kids are suddenly big, big stars. They just make me laugh.”
And what about Snooki having the “x-factor?”
“She recently came in to meet some people from my company. I would say they were more starstruck by Snooki than anyone they’ve ever met in their lives,” he said. “I mean, they were genuinely thrilled. They were taking pictures with her.
“Yeah, so that was the reason why I came to New Jersey: I wanted to find the next Snooki.”
Simon, we thought you were looking for people with talent. Snooki doesn’t have talent except for being able to jam an entire cucumber down her throat.
Do you think Simon Cowell is evil? Well it seems that he’s been like that since birth. He told some stories to Regis & Kelly this morning.
“When I was about four, I found the Father Christmas outfit. So I took my brother to the top of the house and said, ‘See, there is no such thing as Father Christmas’. My brother was about three at the time and he started to cry, and then I set fire to the Father Christmas suit,” he told Regis, to a chorus of boos from the studio audience.
He added: “I was horrible. I was really, really bad. A few years later, I bought a thing called a pea gun – they shoot peas. As a joke me and my friend and I got onto this bus and pointed the gun at the driver’s head and said, you know, ‘Take me to wherever I am going’.”
But his prank backfired when he and his friend found the cops waiting for them.
“When we arrived, there [were] about five police cars and they arrested me,” said Cowell.
Simon Cowell allegedly called Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Katy Perry boring. Simon is denying he ever said that, and he is now doing some damage control.
“If you only ever heard Lady Gaga, she’s the most boring singer in the world,” he reportedly told The Mirror. “You’ve got to see her — you need TV. Same with Beyoncé. Or Katy Perry. We’re all about image. You have to have that X factor.”
Now his publicist is trying to clean up the mess.
“This was completely misreported. It’s the complete opposite, in fact,” Cowell’s rep told RadarOnline.com. “Simon is a massive fan of both [Gaga and Beyoncé] and he always refers to them as amongst the artists he most admires. He thinks they are two of the most interesting, talented and relevant artists today.”
Cowell himself said, “It’s like they’ve all been bred to take over the world and dominate everything in entertainment. They are unbelievable, these girls.”
Simon has a tendency to open up his mouth when he shouldn’t. We believe he called them boring.
Justin Bieber has been upstaged on X Factor by a 14 year old girl named Drew Ryniewicz. She sang Bieber’s “Baby” and wowed the judges.
“I prefer your version to his [Justin's],” Nicole Scherzinger said, before Simon Cowell echoed her comments, saying “So do I.”
Reid, who produced Bieber’s album, also said, “You really made it yours, it was soulful and believable and you are special.”

Selena Gomez stole the show last night on Jay Leno, performing “Love You Like A Love Song.”
Selena tweeted after the show, “I just wanted to say Thank You to all who came out and supported the ‘We Own the Night Tour.’ Thank you all so much I had an amazing summer with you all. I love you.”
Selena also caught up with Simon Cowell who was also a guest last night.
“It’s an insurance policy,” he tells the mag. “If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. If it does work, I’ll be happy. If it’s possible, and I think it will be, why not have a second crack? Does that sound crazy? I think it’s a good idea.”
And that’s not all. Simon also has had the same breakfast everyday for five years of; Hot water with lemon, then papaya juice with lime, then oatmeal, then tea, then three different smoothies: a spinach smoothie, an antioxidant smoothie and a super smoothie with seven fruits.
“It just puts me in a good mood,” he explains. “I know it sounds odd. It’s just what I enjoy doing. I’m sure it’s not completely normal.”
He’s a weird guy. But whatever he’s doing seems to be working for him.
Britain’s Express Newspapers group has set up a fund to help riot victims. The fund has gained the support of Cowell, and other celebrities.
“A lot of families and businesses desperately need some help right now and I back any campaign which achieves this,” said Cowell.
See, Cowell isn’t completely evil.
Did you miss the ultimate prick? Well Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul are returning with their American Idol knockoff called The X Factor. The show will air on FOX, and a $5 Million prize is awarded to the winner.
FOX has released a promo for the new show, where we find a dream sequence showing “new” Simon Cowell. However Cowell eventually wakes up and the old Simon appears on his new show.
Cheryl Cole has been dropped from the judging panel on ‘X-Factor’ and has been replaced with ‘Pussycat Doll’ Nicole Scherzinger.
It is being reported that Cole was dropped largely because producers were concerned her English accent would be too difficult for an American audience to understand.
Producers also thought Cole and fellow judge Paula Abdul had a “lack of chemistry.” Well, Abdul doesn’t really have chemistry with anyone. She kind of marches to her own drum. But okay.
Producers now want Cole to return to the UK version of the show, but she’s allegedly so pissed over how it handled that she may be done with ‘X-Factor’ entirely.
With Cheryl out, Scherzinger will take her seat and Steve Jones will be the only host on the show. Scherzinger was originally going to be a host as well. The show debuts in September.
Well that’s a pretty crappy deal. Being fired for something you can’t control, like say, your voice. I think Scherzinger is a good replacement, but it sucks for Cole as she was hoping to appeal to a larger American audience.
It looks like the audience of The X Factor will witness a happy reunion this fall.
AP reports that former American Idol judge, Paula Abdul has signed on as the The X Factor’s fourth judge. Abdul joins familiar face Simon Cowell as one of the show’s judges, alongside British singer Cheryl Cole, and former Def Jam president, L.A. Reid. Together the four music moguls will audition thousands of talented (and not so talented) artists when the competition premiers this fall on Fox.
Though Abdul and Cowell often bantered often on Idol, Cowell told Deadline.com, “I missed her the second she left. Always loved working with her, even though she can be a pain.”
The executive producer also told People that, “She’s very passionate and she cares. And she has good taste in music, though you didn’t always see that on TV.”
Indeed, Abdul may have become more notable for possibly being intoxicated while on Idol, than for her musical inclinations. Still, Cowell has reportedly been very calculated about choosing members of the judging panel.
Cowell called Reid his “Number one choice to sit alongside me on the show.” The famous Englishman also added that he thought fellow Brit, Cheryl Cole, “was bright, cute, knew what she was talking about.”
Though the audience may be able to predict the dynamic between Cowell and Abdul, don’t be so sure that arguments are out of the question.
“There should be tension to a point,” said Cowell. “I liked the Idol panel when we first started. We had different opinions, and I think it’s important you have different opinions.”
Well, seeing as Cowell has chosen to throw himself, British pop star Cole, American celebrity-maker Reid, and sweet but crazy Abdul to the show, I think there will be more than enough opinions to go around.
