Alex & Sierra won the third and, as it turns out, final season of X Factor USA. The duo impressed fans and judges alike with their quirky covers — they turned Britney Spears“Toxic” into a slow and sultry groove — and sold over one million downloads in the month of December alone. Expectations for the cute couple’s debut single were high and they certainly delivered with infectious folk-pop anthem “Scarecrow”.

The first (and last) American group to win X Factor joined us in the studio to chat about “Scarecrow” and its adorable puppet-themed lyric video. Alex & Sierra also opened up about their debut LP (they wrote songs with industry heavyweights John Legend and Jason Mraz) and each other’s most annoying habits. You might want to wind down the windows if you ever find yourself in a vehicle with Alex! Watch up top.
