"On this week's preshow, I taped an interview with Demi and it's all about how she felt about having to eliminate Willie Jones, but she also gave me some juice on what's going on in the house and the difficulty of the judging process," says Pepsi PreShow Live host Adrienne Bailon.
The PreShow gang, which also features fellow host Jesse Giddings and digital correspondent Jim Cantiello, are also hoping to get some One Direction action. The group is performing on THE X FACTOR Top 12 elimination show on THU NOV 7 at 8/7c on FOX and our roving backstage reporter Jim has something up his sleeve.
"I'm going to do my hardest to stalk them backstage to get an interview, but I can't promise anything. But I will try," he says, admitting to being a big fan of the boy band from overseas. Adds Adrienne, "I'm a girl, so I'm totally allowed to say I love One Direction." "I like them too. It's not a guilty pleasure, it's just a pleasure," jokes Jesse.
The PreShow gang will also show their interviews with the four dearly departed contestants from last week: Willie Jones, Diamond White, David Correy, and Sister C. "They cursing the judges to hell," joked Adrienne. "It's a whirlwind of emotions, but they too time to talk to us about their experience and their perspective," adds Jesse.
Also on deck for the second Pepsi PreShow Live show of Season 2 are interviews with the judges, as well as THE X FACTOR music consultant Savan Kotecha, who wrote One Direction's hit "What Makes You Beautiful," and more surprises.
