Emblem3 Declared “Heartthrobs like The Beatles” After ‘Hey Jude’ on X Factor


By Shari Weiss



Are Emblem3 on their way to becoming the next Beatles?

The “X Factor” judges said as much on Wednesday, after the guys’ incredible rendition of “Hey Jude.”

A blown away L.A. Reid told them, “With the song choice, I was prepared to just rip you to shreds. Doing the Beatles song is very presumptuous.”

But, he conceded after the performance, “You actually are teen heartthrobs like the Beatles!”

Britney Spears told the trio to “take a bow” after their “A-level performance,” which Demi Lovato deemed “amazing.”

“I don’t know if you can compare it to the Beatles yet,” she continued, “I think that you’re getting there… I think you guys have the potential.”

Emblem3’s mentor Simon Cowell said he felt “so proud” of what his group “achieved tonight.”

“You come into this competition with steel in your eyes and you have nailed it,” he told them, adding, “Seriously fantastic.”
