The X Factor’s Dexter Haygood Reunites With His Band

October 28, 2011 02:00 PM by Lisa Princ

This week on The X Factor, we watched as Simon Cowell and the gang chose their top 12 contestants, and unfortunately, rocker Dexter Haygood was not among those chosen. The good news is that we may actually get to see Dexter perform again, as he has reunited with his band since leaving the show! Read on for more…

The X Factor fans said goodbye to raspy rocker, Dexter Haygood this week, as he was not chosen as one of the top 12 finalists. Dexter’s story, however, may just have a happy ending as the singer has reportedly hooked back up with his old band, Xavion, who were around in the eighties. According to TMZ.com, when the band broke up and went their separate ways, they lost touch with Dexter Haygood, and none of them had any idea how bad things had gotten for Dexter.

Luckily for Dexter Haygood, after his appearance on The X Factor, his friends were shocked to see him, and immediately reached out to him. The guys are now hoping to get the band back together and with any luck, play a few shows. Dexter Haygood chatted with TMZ.com, and he told them: “I’m really excited to work with my old band,” adding “I’m more than hopeful that ‘The X Factor’ will invite us to perform on the finale.”

    I would love to see Dexter and his band perform on the finale. In fact, I don’t intend to watch the show any more unless Dexter is on there. I hope to see him performing all over the country in the future. I am not familiar with Xavion’s style, but I love how Dexter handled his last two performances on XFactor. I really loved his performance the night he got booted off. There was a lot of talent on that stage, but not half as much energy in all of the performers combined as there was in Dexter. He was Mick Jagger at 29 + James Brown + David Bowie and more all wrapped into one. There was such an edge to him that I hope this comes out in the Xavion Reunion.

    I definitely want to see Dexter Haygood and Xavion perform. Whatever twists and turns he may have had in his life, Dexter Haygood is a great, charismatic, and entertaining performer. He was the only reason I continued to watch X Factor if Xavion is going to be performing on X Factor, the only reason why I’d watch the show again. Out of all the performers from X Factor, I’d only buy an album he put out. Dexter Haygood is already a landmark performer in rock and roll history as the lead singer of Xavion, a band with great songs, and the first all-Black band to be featured on on MTV.
