Here Is Our Favorite Audition From Last Night's X Factor!

| Filed under: Music MinuteSimon CowellX FactorChris ReneReality TV

We sincerely hope you all tuned in last night, because this is going to be HUGE!!!

X Factor premiered last night and while there were MANY memorable performances that made us weep manly tear up, this performance stole our hearts and touched our souls.

Meet Chris Rene. He's 28 years old. He has a young son. He just got out of rehab. His story is empowering. His attitude is inspiring. His voice is INCREDIBLE!

We'll admit we were dubious at first, but let us tell you - this kid has MAD, natural talent. So versatile as a performer. Plus, he can write and produce! That takes skill!

Check out the video (above) to hear Chris' story and see his extraordinary performance.

Here's to you, Chris! We hope you stay true to your promise and stay clean!

    omg i loved him!!! He was soooo awesome! I could def hear that song on the radio right now and it would be a hit! Show is amazing! And I loved Cheryl! Wish she didn't go away.

    Yes he is talented. But this show is nothing special. the judges are boring. the show is boring.

    LOVED THIS GUY!!!! great song. could be a hit today on radio. Hope he makes it big and stays clean…. Didnt care much for the rest of the show though.

    this guy is amazing and has that certain "it" factor in looks and personality. that said, please Perez, can we not turn this site into The X Factor only? The good news is that X Factor focus is taking some of the focus off Britney, Lohan and Kardashians. Can we please keep it even?

    I don't believe in God, thats my personal belief, but I do say Bless this child, for it really looks like this one deserves a good break, and hopefully this platform gives it to him and his family.

    I could listen to Chris over and over again. I think they just found the winner of the X-Factor.

    i hope he make it, for reall

    Love love love him!!! I think most people deserve a second chance and definitely think he does. I hope he makes it far…

    I think he's good but you can already hear a damaged voice because of drugs and alcohol, cigarettes. All his attempted falsettos were raspy. There's an endearing factor to him for sure. I just hope he stays clean or he'll have no voice in a few years.

    AMAZING HE WAS!!!! I wasnt the biggest Simone fan! but ur right that can mold her! But can we also say HELLO TERRELL! sweet lord he was hot!

  13. 13

    they didn't ask the right question. they were asking if he'd be able to stay clean if he got big and famous, but the real question is is he strong enough to fail?

    wow out of all UK x factor shows and britain's got talent shows I think this is the best audition I've seen yet….even without the sob story. I hate when a good singer comes out singing someone elses song, so he couldn't be any more perfect. I can already hear that song on the radio.

  15. 15

    He's very good. I like that he wrote that song himself, too!

  16. 16

    whoo Santa Cruz represent!

  17. 17

    Where's the talent?

  18. 18

    he's amazing but I hate those sad stories! Drugs and alcohol were his choice, no one forced him to do those things. I just don't have compassion with junkies saying they have a disease, look at the kids with leukemia etc….those are the real victims! NOT JUNKIES!

    I have been following the AMAZING perez for a couple of years but this is the first post that made me want to made an account and post a comment. Chris Rene is truly an inspiration and it is so nice because it is a real story and he is a really amazing guy who was able to help himself get clean and now we are able to see his great talent. It really shows us what undiscovered raw talent there is in the world. I really think he is so talented and that his voice and tone of song really makes me and everyone i show this song to so calm and uplifted and im so happy that america fount him!

  20. 20

    SO happy for him! we're from the same home town, its always great to see a santa cruz local make it :)
