Who?! Oh gurl puleeze! I'm talking about Jillian Jensen, whose audition tears left us all wet-faced, and Nick Youngerman, the one contestant who got Britney Spears to shake her booty on "Ice Ice Baby." The two Young Adults might be gone from THE X FACTOR, but their consolation prize is a heaping dose of the Love Factor!
And, the best part is my All Access Pass got a fun little exclusive straight from the their mouths! When I spoke to Jillian she had actually just bought a plane ticket on a whim to fly to Ohio to surprise Nick. That's right! "I about peed my pants. I did get pretty emotional." Nick told of me of Jill's spontaneous surprise. As for the duo's future plans, Jillian told me, "We're going to come back together" next season.
These two weren't the only ones who are making moves after their run on the show. I also caught up with Daryl Black, who is planning on moving his family to Los Angeles. He also has his sights set on a possible Black family reality show! After watching his hilarious Video Diary, I'd tune in. Wouldn't you?
Daryl's heartbreak over not moving forward to the Live Shows quickly subsided when he arrived home to find that his family had rolled out the red carpet for him (literally!), handed him a trophy, and baked him a cake. Cue the awwwws!
I also caught up with Dope Crisis as well. They happened to be in the studio recording new music when I spoke to them...who'd a thunk it? I caught up about life after X and how Britney Spears actually fought to bring them back in Boot Camp after their initial elimination! After catching up with these four acts, looks like no one is lying down and licking their wounds. Instead, it's go time! That's the spirit, people! I expect to see all of your hands in the cement at the next premiere ;)
