LA Reid Makes ‘Epic’ X Factor USA Signings

As the newly appointed head of Epic Records, LA Reid has already made a number of groundbreaking decisions pertaining to the label’s future.

Indeed, after signing  ‘Fantasy RiderCiara  last year and X Factor alum Cher Lloyd this year,today saw confirmation of news that will have many a Pop enthusiast buzzing- to say the very least.

For, in what will serve as an added incentive for any wannabe vocalists hoping to join X Factor USA’s upcoming season, the exec has signed three of last year’s more promising acts.

Congratulations guys!

Seeing as Reid has proven his ability to turn many an artists’  water into premium wine – see Rihanna- it is fair to say that all three acts are in very good hands.

    I will not by any of their albums nor will I want to go see any of them perform. Thye may have a good single here and there but thats about it.

    Marcus will likely only have success on the R&B charts.

    Astro needs to grow up and lose the cokciness/attitude-you are NOT Kanye West.

    Chris will maybe have a few minor Pop hits. I don’t see him (nor any of this seasons contestants) being huge.

    I like Melanie, Chris & Astro but I think Marcus is a wannabe star… he is whack. … I wish him success though… maybe he just needs to grow on me….

    @ number1kanine- you can make a lot of money in America even if you are only r&b… ask Keyshia Cole, Fantasia, R Kelly, and Trey Songz…. not sure what country u are from but this is Xfactor USA & not XfactorUK…. there is a HUGE R&B fanbase….. unfortunately everyone is putting out whack material right now.

    Good luck to Astro!!!

    Marcus is not that great. He has good performance skills, but he seems to be another Jason Derulo. You’ve saw them before. Chris will probably do well. He’s his own artist. Astro has skills, very talented so he’ll probably do well to.

    @ L Boogie

    I never said Marcus would not be successful, even tho truth be told I don’t think he will. His vocals IMO are not good, I don’t like his tone.

    Like the other person said he is like a Jason DeRulo type. Decent performer but yeah.

    I actually agree more with what u said about Marcus interestingly enuf!

    Yeah I agree with @JJFAN1814 y you be hating on Rihanna so much??? #JusAskin’
    Astro will not do good in the business. I mean he is like 15 years old!! I just don’t think in this day in age kids his age are not gonna like him!

    Chris: Reminds me of Matt Giruard from American Idol.

    Marcus: We don’t need another Bobby Brown!
