  1. I really believe this is just totally getting out of hand. Why, are they being punished for the corruption their companies, and Others created? I believe there’s more to this then votes being rigged. This is just my opinion, but both groups were at the verge of maybe surpassing some of the bigger groups in the industry, and people didn’t want that to happen. Being from the US, I may not understand the whole situation, but I just can’t see a company wanting to disband groups that they know can made more money for them. I hope this ends soon, cause I LOVE X1 ❤️ and want to hear more from them. Also I would love to see them here in the US. Like the other groups in LA. I don’t know what it’s going to take for all this hate to stop, but I’m praying for both groups to STAND TALL AND DON’T LET HATE PUSH THEM OUT.
