Boy Band Head To Head: Emblem3 vs One Direction

8/4/2013 12:00pm EDT
Emblem3 vs. One Direction
Two boy bands are doing big things in 2013 or as rapper T.I. Would say, “Big things poppin’”. Emblem3 are a  product of the X-Factor US while One Direction was a product of X-Factor Great Britain. Neither band was victorious on their respective seasons, but regardless of winning or losing, both seemed to be poised to for the limelight.  Emblem3 recently released their debut album Nothing To Lose while One Direction prepare to release, wait for it, a movie.  Who else did that?…coughs* Justin Bieber… cough*

Teen-pop is all about a package.  That isn’t to say that artistry is unimportant, but...

Review: Emblem3 Has ‘Nothing To Lose’

Emblem3: Nothing To Lose
Emblem3 truly have ‘nothing to lose’ but do they ‘gain enough’ to become commercially successful?

Just as the album title suggests, former X Factor trio Emblem3 have nothing to lose. And I do mean nada. Why? Well, the former contestants from the show have been unsuccessful in establishing a commercial presence.  That goes for all of them – Tate Stevens, Marcus Canty, Rachel Crow, Josh Krajcik and Melanie Amaro.  To their credit  (or maybe better yet to Simon Cowell’s credit), Emblem3 seem to have more ‘commercial’ firepower than the aforementioned.  That said, that doesn’t make Nothing to ...

Emblem3 To Create Original Music & Perform 'Sublime' Cover (Video)

Emblem 3
Emblem3 was sent home during last night's shocking X Factor elimination, leaving Fifth Harmony, Tate Stevens and Carly Rose Sonenclair in the final three.

Drew, Wesley and Keaton have been ranked in the number three spot for the last four weeks in a row and said they would rather have all of the knowledge they've gained throughout their entire X Factor experience than a 5 million dollar grand-prize. The trio left the show with their heads held high saying no matter what the outcome, they'll always continue to make music.

We caught up with the handsome fellas to see what kind of original m...

'The X Factor' Recap: Emblem3 Goes Home In A Shocker

Fifth Harmony, Tate Stevens and Carly Rose Sonenclar advance to
To me, this was the most shocking result I've ever seen in a reality show.

Yes, this was my own prediction, my own prediction from the very beginning to be exact, but just because it was mine alone, doesn't mean it was wrong.

After looking at the success of One Direction, it seemed to me that Simon Cowell and the rest of this show's producers were going to do their damndest this year to recreate that success with a boy group of their own. In Emblem3. they seemed to have that perfect group: A pop trio of cute boys who could actually deliver the musical and performance goods.

From the outs...

'The X Factor' Semifinals: The Final Four Underwhelm

'The X-Factor' Recap: The Final Four Underwhelm
As we’ve reached the final four, it’s time to come to a harsh reality: The talent this season is about as bad as we’ve ever seen on a singing show.

Look at what we’ve come down to. A middle-of-the-road country singer, a teeny-bopper girl, a group of three male airheads, and a thrown together girl group who only recently discovered harmony.

That’s it? That’s what we’re supposed to be choosing between? I think the reason ‘The Voice’ took off is because everybody on it is really good. Granted, that’s because everybody on that show is a legitimate recording artist already, just you haven’t he...

'The X Factor' Recap: The Final Four Are Set

Cece Frey (C) is eliminated on THE X FACTOR
For the first time all year, I was completely right.

It's not like it was that hard. There's a very clear top three in this competition: Tate, Emblem3 and Carly Rose are poised to battle it out on the final show. That made it incredibly easy to predict the results of last night's show. Sorry for the spoiler everyone, I guess I don't know my own powers sometimes.

Okay, enough of the self-congratulaion. Let's bid a fond farewell to Leopard Face. Actually, a not-so-fond farewell.

Leopard Face was the biggest disappointment in this competition. Not only because of the fact that she couldn't ...

Emblem 3
'The X Factor' is heating up as two of the top 6 contestants are going home tonight. Last week, Diamond White fought for survival by sending home Vino Alan and securing herself in the last spot. CeCe Frey made a comeback and was safe at number five while Fifth Harmony was voted at number four. The boys from Emblem3 have been successfully climbing the leader board and were ranked at number three last week. Tate Stevens continues to fight for that number one spot but came in at number two, with Ms. Carly Rose Sonenclar holding the top spot for two weeks in a row.

The Top 12 Perform on 'The X Factor' Diva Week

Emblem3 performs live The X Factor
It’s Diva week on “The X Factor” when the 12 acts take on the songs from some of the biggest divas in the music business.

Last week in reality show history, “The X Factor” revealed the rankings of each act; this week the acts are looking to improve on many of those ratings as they channel their inner diva and avoid the double elimination on results night.

Again having “technical difficulties” – music tracks and backup singers drowning out the singers – “The X Factor” warbled through the night as the judges discussed the performances.

First to take the stage was young adult Jennel Garcia...
