HOLLYWOOD - Simon Cowell, the music mogul with the golden touch really and truly believed that his boy group Emblem 3, was going to be the 2012 X-Factor winner.
But he received the shock of his life when they were eliminated on the semi-finals results show.
Most people felt that another Cowell group Fifth Harmony was surely going to be sent home and the three acts that would go into the X-Factor season finale would be Tate "Cowboy" Stevens, Carly Rose "Sad Eyes" Sonenclar, and the young boy trio Emblem 3.
After the show Simon remarked backstage that apparently the five girls that make up Fifth Harmony must have a tremendous following who probably voted hundreds of times each.
Judge L.A. Reid was not a fan of the the quintet as on several occasions he stated that they all sang the same part and they should change their name from Fifth Harmony to Fifth Unison or perhaps maybe to Fifth of Bottom Shelf Bourbon.
Reid also said somewhat tongue-in-cheek that the five girls aren't exactly easy on the eyes since they all tend to roll their eyes, stick out their tongues, and use way too much eyeliner, eyeshadow, and tanning spray.
Britney Spears agreed adding that they also spend way too much time kissing and hugging each other.
Demi Lovato even made the comment that two of the five girls really need to trim their eyebrows.
