Ready for some more “X Factor” USA notes? Let’s hope so, since we are starting things off with some cool news from Tate Stevens before progressing into some other interesting stories that are still currently unfolding around the internet.
So when it comes to this reigning champion, you will be rather pleased to know that the man is already in the process of picking out some songs for his debut album, which is a pretty big sign in itself that the show’s producers and Sony Nashville are more than a little bit interested in having this guy launch a career sooner rather than later. Here is what Tate himself had to say on the subject in a post on Twitter:
“Had a great time going through songs for my album yesterday! Can’t wait! Hope everyone is as excited as I am about it!!!”
We would be stunned if Tate’s album is not out in stores at some point before 2013 is over.
A Carly Rose honor – We always like to wait a few weeks following the finale to crown someone the YouTube champ of the season, mostly because things can change and the winner often picks up more views after the confetti rains down on them. However, this was not true when figuring out just who is the top contestants of the season this time when it comes to views … and it’s not even close.
With over 22 million views to just her audition alone, Carly Rose Sonenclar has won the overall YouTube title for this year by a mile, and Tate Stevens ironically is not even in the top four here when it comes to average views per video (as Fifth Harmony, Emblem3, Diamond White, and even CeCe Frey) all have more. This also serves as another sign that many Carly Rose’s fans are either younger and more web-savvy, but possible also international and unable to vote as much as Tate fans have been over the past several months.
Demi takes a break – Demi is giving her Twitter account a break this week rather than your heart (rim shot). The sad thing for her is that whenever she posts a tweet, every gossip site everywhere decides to speculate about what it is about. On this occasion, she posted something about relationships only for sites everyone to raise eyebrows about who it could be.
With that in mind, Demi announced early Friday that she’s taking a little bit of time off from the internet, which can easily get a little overwhelming at times. Don’t worry: we’ll surely see her back online soon!
