Chris Pounders Auditions For X-Factor, Gets Demi Lovato Tweet

Pounders plays tonight at the Blank Club.

Chris Pounders has had the weirdest run of luck lately. He got cast in a David Lynch video despite not only never having seen a Lynch film, but not even knowing who Lynch was. Clearly, anyone with a pink Mohawk should know that particular filmography (Pounders, to his credit, has since corrected this).

His band, Pounders, is doing well, too. They played their most gigs ever this month, and will wind up with their show tonight at the Blank Club, as well as a Warped Tour set tomorrow and a spot on the SF Pride main stage on Sunday.

But this week Pounders had yet another weird run-in with celebrity. They’re all weird, it seems like. Maybe it’s just something about Chris—he’s young, sincere, enthusiastic and oddly innocent for someone with his punk-meets-art look. He’s charming, and kind of up for anything, whether it not it fits into the image that other people project onto him.

Which is undoubtedly what led him to the auditions for The X Factor held in San Francisco on Monday. Suddenly, he found himself in front of TV arch-villain Simon Cowell, and the other judges Britney Spears, L.A. Reid and Demi Lovato. I’m not sure what exactly he did, but he definitely made an impression:

The “#TWINSES” reference—and yes, I am absolutely ashamed I know this—has to do with the fact that the 19-year-old Lovato debuted her own pink hair—just the tips, in this case—at the auditions on Monday, causing a stir among fans and celeb-watchers.

How far Pounders gets on X Factor remains to be seen. The second season of the show debuts Sept 12-13 at 8pm. The winner of this season receives a $5 million recording contract with Epic Records.
