Is X Factor Super Group Playback The Next One Direction?
Just because they weren’t chosen to advance in the competition as solo artists doesn’t mean their X Factor journey is over for good. After all, a little group called One Direction was also formed out of various solo artists (albeit across the pond).
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Playback — a brand new supergroup composed of five former solo contenders. These boys made a huge impression on their mentors Simon Cowell and Marc Anthony with their October 10th performance of Hall & Oates’s seminal classic, “Rich Girl” — with lots of rapping.
So which familiar faces make up this new group? Follow them on Twitter to learn more about these boys. What they lack in experience as a group, they seem to make up for in energy and adorableness. But can they compete against lifelong friends Emblem3? Only time (and Simon and Marc Anthony’s white-shirted wrath/guidance) will tell.
