"Life is beautiful," said Chris, who just got back from dates in New Zealand, where a fan got a tattoo of his autograph on her wrist. He also revealed he's 18 months sober (congrats, Chris!) and dished on life after THE X FACTOR.
And, just because One Direction has left the building, doesn't mean we're through with them yet. As host Jesse Giddings said, "the One Direction hangover continues," so special guest, All Access Pass host Laura, delivered some more behind-the-scenes moments with the 1D guys, including a hilarious reaction from one female contestant who freaked out big time when Harry Styles waved to her. (Find out who had the mega flip-out by watching the show back on the link below!)
We also get a look at Laura's exclusive backstage interview with the boys. Favorite moment? When Harry takes away Laura's note cards and then walks off. Loved it! "I was so flustered, I didn't know what to say," laughed Laura.
The PreShow gang, which also features host Adrienne Bailon and digital correspondent Jim Cantiello, showed us interviews with the acts on how they felt about the 1-12 rankings last week. "I was crying for a good long while after that," said one contestant about his/her ranking. (Yep, gotta watch the PreShow back to find out who said it!)
Adrienne also sat down once with Demi Lovato to get to the root of her ever-growing eyebrows. "What's funny is I used to over tweeze them and my stylist said something," explained Demi. So, she took her advice and "just let them grow in." No eyebrow extensions or eyebrow wigs here, folks! Jesse's nickname for her brows? "Power Brows!"
The fun-filled show also featured pundits from People and TheHollywoodReporter.com sharing their expertise, show regular Brian Friedman showing off his fab-u-lous dancers, some Lovatics, and, course, our judges!
Okay, that's enough of a tease. Check out the stellar episode yourself in all its hour-long glory right HERE.
