X Factor USA Reunites Dexter Haygood’s 80s Band Xavion

Filed under : Celebrity News

Dexter Haygood may have missed out on a $5 million contract for winning The X Factor USA but he has scored an unexpected prize. He may now be reunited with his old band from the 1980s.

And they are not just any old band. They have the impressive accolade of being the first all black rock group ever featured on MTV.

Dexter Haygood fronted the six piece funk rock band known as Xavion. They were massively successful in the 1980s, even briefly touring with Hall & Oates. But their fame didn’t last, just like Dexter’s X Factor appearances, and the guys went their separate ways.

The other band members completely lost touch with Haygood. They had no idea that he struggled with substance abuse and wound up homeless and on the streets until he appeared on The X Factor USA. Once they saw his appearance on the show, most of Dexter’s former band mates got in touch.

Now they are hoping to reunite the whole band for some reunion shows. Dexter is even hoping they might get to perform on The X Factor, but producers have to agree to it first.

Dexter Haygood said,

“I’m really excited to work with my old band. I’m more than hopeful that The X Factor will invite us to perform on the finale.”

Would you like to see Dexter perform with Xavion on The X Factor USA finale?

    I would like to see Dextor on X Factor again. I do think he has talent and could be good. They just gave him terrible songs to sing on that show, and that is why he failed. It really seemed like they set him up to fail. I am hoping he does have success with his band, or whatever he does.
