As a big fan of Emblem3 from ‘X Factor’, I was so excited to see them perform at Amp Live! Like most of you, I couldn’t wait to meet them! Since I missed the fan meet and greet with the band and the interview that the Coop Show did with them I didn’t think I would get a chance to talk with them.
So, after Emblem3 performed I thought for sure they were leaving, which is what most artist do. To my surprise I found Keaton sitting on the stage drinking a cup of tea. Naturally I approached him, introduced myself and asked for a picture. He apologized for being sweaty, but I was sweaty, too! He cracked up and I went on to say how much I love Emblem3 and that I’ve been following them since their audition on ‘X Factor’.
We talked a little about California, like the boys I’m from Southern California, too! Keaton went on to say he was waiting to see Carly Rae Jepsen perform because he really likes her and “they’ve done some shows together”. I couldn’t believe how sweet Keaton was, he was absolutely adorable!
I went on to ask Keaton “what’s been the best thing that they’ve experienced so far?” He said, “there’s been a lot of amazing things but the coolest was filming our music video for Chloe!”
After talking with him for a little bit, Drew comes walking by. As I was standing there with them, Keaton calls Drew over and tells him to not be seen because he didn’t want the crowd to go nuts out of respect for Carly, who was standing by.
I then asked Drew the same question, what’s this experience been like, and his answer was very deep. Drew talked about how he’s just “out there experiencing life and trying to find himself and the meaning of what this all means.” He went on to say how he wants a girlfriend, but it’s so hard because they’re always traveling. He also told me how he recently asked this girl out and went into more detail about that… it was so cute. I wasn’t expecting him to be so sensitive.
Slacker then came over and started talking to Drew about Lyric da Queen, the rapper from Flint who was on ‘X Factor’ with Emblem3. Then we all starting talking about Nicki Minaj and… I’ll leave those details out.
After all of that, I had leave and go on stage to introduce Carly Rae. I left the boys alone and let them watch the show. As a fan, you never want to be annoying or pesty! After watching Carly Rae, I saw Drew again backstage he came up and gave me a big high five and winked at me… I never saw Wesley but meeting Keaton and Drew was the best!
