Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid loved Emblem 3’s latest performance on The X Factor. But Britney Spears and Demi Lovato still aren’t big fans.

Tonight on Fox, Emblem 3 performed “I’m a Believer” in an upbeat way that was evocative of when Smash Mouth covered the song in the 90’s. And much like the 90’s, it seems that this trio of band boys might yield success the likes of N’Sync, 98*, and The Backstreet Boys.

However, there’s something weird going on.

But why are they only appealing to the judges who are the older men, not the females? As Lovato said, she’s the 20-year-old female on the panel, and she doesn’t see their appeal. She even went to far as to say that they’re liked because they’re attractive. It seems she doubts their talent. Do you?
