The X Factor USA 2012: Britney Spears Admits Disappointment Over Emblem 3′s Elimination
X Factor judge Demi Lovato may not have loved The X Factor’s resident boy band, Emblem 3, but judge Britney Spears was never shy about her admiration. Having played a vital role in the early 2000s pop music/boy band era, the Pop Princess may know a thing or two about this genre. She was no stranger to the style having welcomed such boy bands as O-Town and Nsync on tour with her. Let’s not forget her highly publicized relationship with Nsync-er Justin Timberlake.
Britney’s face truly said it all as Fifth Harmony was sent through to the finale first. After the show she admitted to X Factor hosts Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian Odom that she was “disappointed” with America’s votes.
“I was a little disappointed. I thought it was going to be the other group, Emblem 3.”
The good news for Britney is it’s not the last that we’ll hear from Emblem 3. It’s likely that the ink is still drying on their contract with Simon Cowell who told reporters that he won’t let these boys go so easily. As for Britney, she’ll have plenty of time to get over her disappointment as she focuses on winning the $5 million prize with Carly Rose Sonenclar.
