Tate Stevens might’ve been crowned this year’s X Factor champ, but it sounds like some of his competitors are set to win big as well!
While it’d been rumored that Simon Cowell’s group, Emblem3, would be signed to Sony Music, we’re now hearing that Carly Rose Sonenclar and Fifth Harmony will be, too!
With the season concluding just last week, Carly Rose came in second place this season, with Fifth Harmony in third and Emblem3 in fourth!
Though official announcements are said to be made in early 2013, the four finalists will all supposedly be signed to Syco Music — Simon and Sony Music’s record company.
Of Simon’s plans, an insider revealed:
"Simon is determined to prove that he can find the next big girl group in America. He missed out on a chance to sign the Spice Girls and he's regretted it ever since."
Even though girl group Little Mix won the X Factor UK in 2011, they still have yet to see success in America… so it sounds like 5H just may be Simon’s answer!
Carly Rose, on the other hand, will reportedly be marketed similarly to America’s Got Talent finalist, Jackie Evancho, except leaning more towards pop than opera.
As for his hopes for Emblem3, the bro band trio?
"Emblem3 has always been Simon's biggest priority out of this year's contestants. He thinks Emblem3 can be as big as Hanson was in the late '90s."
The only issue Emblem3 would be facing now is choosing between Epic Records and Columbia Records to market and promote their music!
It’ll definitely be interesting to see what becomes of the finalists!
