I was with the Top 8 in their waiting area where Tate helped Wes get into a high chair, Emblem3, CeCe, Paige, Carly, and Diamond waved at fans from the balcony. Vino got new shades and Fifth Harmony shared laughs with me. Then it was off to the stage to spill the beans on all that is amazing with THE X FACTOR!
Not only was it great to watch all the contestants chat it up with Mario for the cameras, but it was fab to watch the fans scream and fangirl while they did. (I admit, I was fangirling a little too!) Mario revealed the theme of the week (Number Ones!), found out how the contestants are feeling at this point in the game and also what they remember most from the judges' critiques. The best part came after the taping when fans got to take pics with the contestants and literally chased Emblem3 as they were leaving. Yes, CHASED! I'm talking full on running after them, and hey, can you blame them?
So, who will be Number One this week? Well, EVERYBODY! Okay, maybe not, but they will all be performing Number One hit songs. I've seen the rehearsals, though, people, and they all COULD be Number One with the amount of talent they have.
Inspired by their greatness, I took to Twitter to express my feelings on this and decided the contestants are all like different colors in a box of crayons. How you say blue is better than green or red? What if you wanna draw grass and a sky? You'd need green and blue. See what I mean people? Each of the contestants bring their own color to the box, but they're all perfect for drawing different things.
That being said, somebody still has to go home, which means that's one less thing we'll have the right color to draw. One thing is for sure, though, Number Ones week is looking like it's gonna be my Number One favorite show so far!
Tune in WED NOV 28 at 8/7c on FOX to see it all go down! And take a look at some of the contestants Number Ones, including their Number One dance move in my video HERE.
