‘The X Factor’ and the TCAs: Demi Lovato, One Direction, and Emblem3 news

The latest -This edition of “The X Factor” notes is different than any other, mostly because we are putting the entire focus here on a certain awards show in the Teen Choice Awards, one that was very, very good to some of the acts who have been on the show over the past year.

First of all, let’s talk performances! While the TCA stage is hardly big enough to really do anything that is particularly special, it did still allow for an opportunity to see some great performances, including current judge Demi Lovato. Rather than singing her smash hit “Heart Attack,” she chose to give a little bit more play to her second single “Made in the USA.” What made this performance stand out, away from the hook and the screaming fans, was the presence of Nick Jonas on the drums. As most longtime Lovatics remember, Demi toured with the Jonas Brothers years ago and starred with them in the “Camp Rock” franchise during the group’s heyday.

Meanwhile, we also had a performance from a certain “X Factor” UK sensation in One Direction, who closed out their time in America this summer with a performance of “Best Song Ever.” This self-aggrandizing tune is what they are using right now to promote their upcoming 3D concert film “This Is Us,” which is hoping to follow up on other recent concert movies starring the likes of Justin Bieber and Katy Perry.

In addition to Fifth Harmony presenting an award, Emblem3 was actually victorious in winning one! We’ll let this Twitter message from the band speak for itself:
