Country singer Tate Stevens won on "The X Factor" U.S. in 2012, but he isn't the only contestant from the show who's getting a record deal with Sony Music. Sources say that Carly Rose Sonenclar (second place), Fifth Harmony (third place) and Emblem3 (fourth place) are also getting deals with Sony Music. The announcements will officially be made in early 2013.
Stevens, Sonenclar, Fifth Harmony and Emblem3 will be signed to Syco Music, the record company co-owned by Simon Cowell and Sony Music. Syco will then partner with a larger Sony Music label (Epic Records or Columbia Records) to market and promote the "X Factor" alumni's music.
