According to sources, X Factor judge Simon Cowell says that regardless of the outcome of this season, he will NOT let the boys of Emblem3 slip through his fingers.
Soooo, like they can’t they pretty much drop out of XF competition now? Oh yeah, but then they may not win the $5 million bucks. Nevermind!
Apparently, the grouchy Brit has no qualms about letting the world know that he believes in the talent of these three brothers (no matter what his fellow judge Demi Lovato says!) and has no intention of letting them sign with another label.
I think there’s a pretty good chance [I'd sign them] I’m not going to let anyone else get them. There’ll be some pretty big announcements at the end of the show.
While we thought the guys of Emblem3, Wesley and Keaton Stromberg and Drew Chadwick, rocked their performance of Bruno Mars’ tune ”Just the Way You Are” during this week’s episode of XF, judge Demi Lovato called their rendition a “downgraded version of the Jonas Brothers five years ago.”
But while Demi’s harsh words may send some competitors reeling, the Drew Chadwick takes it all in stride.
You know what it is… She’s got one of those old school schoolgirl crushes, where the only way she knows how to flirt is by being mean.
Like Helga from ‘Hey Arnold! She has a shrine in her closet.
We’re not sure if we’re really buying this theory, but we’ll buy into whatever gets these boys to the next round!

During Bruno Mars’ hosting stint on Saturday Night Live last night, the singer took a few (hilarious) jabs at fellow pop star Justin Bieber.
In one sketch, Mars played “Devin”, a Pandora radio intern, who is forced to act out all the popular musical acts when Pandora’s streaming abilities shut down.
Mars first tries his hand at impersonating Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong singing “Basket Case” (totally appropriate given Billie’s most recent antics…) and then moves on to an over-the-top performance of The Bieb’s “Boyfriend”.
While Bruno’s Bieber could use a little work, we still got a huge kick out of it! Check out a video of the sketch below!

The 2012 Grammy Awards are upon us and it’s time for GossipTeen fans to weigh in on who will be taking home the coveted “Album of the Year” gramophone. The five nominees run the gambit from rock to hip hop to pop to well… whatever it is that Lady Gaga does, and we think this year’s vote is going to be closer than ever!
So what say you oh fans of GossipTeen? Will it be Adele and 21? The Foo Fighters and Wasting Light? Rihanna and Loud? Bruno Mars and Doo-Wops & Hooligans? Or Lady Gaga and Born this Way?
Let us know who YOU would give the Grammy to below!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Awards Season!!!
That’s right ladies and gentlemen, the 2012 Grammy nominations are in and we’ve got them for you, along with our predictions of who will be taking home the gilded gramophones!
Album Of The Year:
Foo Fighters, “Wasting Light”
Lady Gaga, “Born This Way”
Bruno Mars, “Doo-Wops and Hooligans”
GossipTeen Pick: Adele should get the nod on this one, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Gaga will be walking away the winner of AOY.
Record Of The Year:
Adele, “Rolling in the Deep”
Bon Iver, “Holocene”
Bruno Mars, “Grenade”
Mumford & Sons, “The Cave”
Katy Perry, “Firework”
GossipTeen Pick: SUCH a tough call. For me, it’s a toss up between Bon Iver’s “Holocene” and Mumford & Sons’ ”The Cave”, but with “Rolling in the Deep’s” huge radio success, Adele will most likely be the victor for ROY.
Song Of The Year:
“All Of The Lights” — Jeff Bhasker, Malik Jones, Warren Trotter & Kanye West, songwriters. (Kanye West, Rihanna, Kid Cudi & Fergie)
“The Cave” — Ted Dwane, Ben Lovett, Marcus Mumford & Country Winston, songwriters (Mumford & Sons)
“Grenade” — Brody Brown, Claude Kelly, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine, Bruno Mars & Andrew Wyatt, songwriters (Bruno Mars)
“Holocene” — Justin Vernon, songwriter (Bon Iver)
“Rolling In The Deep” — Adele Adkins & Paul Epworth, songwriters (Adele)
GossipTeen Pick: Again, a tough call here, but I think “All of the Lights” will emerge victorious.
Best New Artist:
The Band Perry
GossipTeen Pick: If we’re going on outright success, this award should go to Nicki Minaj. The girl is everywhere and has created an incredible brand for herself.
Pop Vocal Album:
“The Lady Killer,” Cee Lo Green
“Born This Way,” Lady Gaga
“Doo-Wops & Hooligans,” Bruno Mars
GossipTeen Pick: Personally, I love ALL of these albums and if it were up to me, I’d give the award to Bruno Mars, just because I love, love, love his sound, BUT my prediction is that the gramophone will go to “Born This Way”.
“Rock ‘n’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul,” Jeff Beck
“Wasting Light,” Foo Fighters
“Come Around Sundown,” Kings of Leon
“I’m With You,” Red Hot Chili Peppers
“The Whole Love,” Wilco.
GossipTeen Pick: I’m not overwhelmed by the rock category this year. If I had to choose, which I do for the sake of this post, I’d go with Jeff Beck’s ”Rock ‘n’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul”, just because he’s reDICULOUSLY talented – but truthfully, none of the nominees blew me away this go-around.
“F.A.M.E.,” Chris Brown
“Second Chance,” El DeBarge
“Love Letter,” R. Kelly
“Pieces of Me,” Ledisi
“Kelly,” Kelly Price.
GossipTeen Pick: All I can say, is that if Chris Brown wins, I quit life. But seriously, the nod should go to Kelly Price for “Kelly”.
“Watch the Throne,” Jay-Z and Kanye West
“Tha Carter IV,” Lil Wayne
“Lasers,” Lupe Fiasco
“Pink Friday,” Nicki Minaj
“My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” Kanye West.
GossipTeen Pick: It’s either going to be “Watch the Throne” or “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”. Either way Kanye West comes out a winner, so his ego should be about the size of mainland China by the end of the night.
“My Kinda Party,” Jason Aldean
“Chief,” Eric Church
“Own the Night,” Lady Antebellum
“Red River Blue,” Blake Shelton
“Here for a Good Time,” George Strait
“Speak Now,” Taylor Swift.
GossipTeen Pick: Again, totally underwhelmed by the nominees this year for Country Album of the Year. The safe pick would be to go with Taylor Swift, but hopefully Lady Antebellum’s “Own the Night” will walk away a winner.
The 2012 Grammy Awards air on CBS on February 12, 2012.

Premiere week is upon us Twihards and in celebration of Breaking Dawn hitting theaters, Bruno Mars has released his video for Will it Rain – one of his songs that is featured on the Breaking Dawn soundtrack.
The video, features Mars and a Kourtney Kardashian look-a-like doing some serious canoodling, as well as vignettes from Breaking Dawn sprinkled throughout.
In my humble opinion, everything Bruno Mars lends his golden vocal chords to is pure perfection – so I love this jam. Check out his new video below and let us know what you think!
