'X Factor' USA Emblem3's Drew Chadwick: 'Simon Cowell plays it safe'

By
Emblem3's Drew Chadwick has said that he is hoping mentor Simon Cowell will allow the band to take more risks on The X Factor USA.

The California band earned mixed reviews for their version of The Monkees' 'I'm A Believer' on Wednesday's live X Factor, a song which Chadwick says doesn't really represent Emblem3's style.

"[Simon] plays it safe. Super safe," Chadwick told E! News. "We gotta get the perfect arrangement and song, and we look forward to the opportunity."

Chadwick went on to stress that he wants Emblem3 to have the chance to show off more of their musical ability if they survive elimination.

"We're more than just [a boyband]. We're real artists. We are," he insisted. "It's easy to get the girls [as fans]. We wanna get the guys, too!"

Emblem3 have covered Alicia Keys, The Police and Katy Perry in previous weeks on the Fox reality competition.

The X Factor USA continues tonight (November 29) at 8/7c.
