Our Favorite Australian X Factor Contestant Does Usher!

| Filed under: Music MinuteYummy Yummy ScrewAustraliasticX FactorReality TV

We are REALLY feeling Johnny Ruffo!

The X Factor: Australia contestant blew us out of the water with his incredible rendition of Michael Jackson's classic Billy Jean last week, and now, he's gotten us more than a little tingly by taking on David Guetta and Usher!

Ch-ch-check out Without You (above)!

He's a little too '90s boyband here, but you can't deny how talented he is!

And how SUPER DREAMY, too!

We're in love!

Keep it up, boy!

  3. 3

    WOW HE IS SO SEXY!!!!!!!!!

  4. gdubs says – reply to this


    Holy shit, that was terrible. Entire time he was extremely sharp or flat. This is why we shouldn't the tone deaf people (like Perez apparently) determine who has talent and who doesn't.

  5. 5

    You know I gotta say.. This guy has potential.

  6. 6

    He is really impressive! I saw behind the scenes footage with him and he looks like such a down to earth all around good guy too! I hope someone like him makes it! He is incredibly good looking, so talented, a great voice (not shown to top potential with this song! Other performances show his true vocal ability), the boy can DANCE! and just WOW!! GO JOHNNY!!!

  14. 14

    Does Australia have a Gay Porn industry; that's where this guy's talent lies….singing isn't it.

  15. 15

    Johnny is amazing I watch him every week and he just gets better and Better! He has so much talent! Can't wait to c wat he does next week

  16. 16

    mmm! I love him I love him! SO TALENTED! I want to see more

  17. 17

    He's beautiful. and talented. Sitting at work this morning and co workers and I decided to youtube his other performances. Star potential.

  18. 18

    Who even watches this??
    Wouldn't it be nice to have just a fraction of what famous people do?? Taking online paid surveys can help you get there! I earned an extra $200 last week just answering some questions! Try it out!!
    See how much you can start making today!

  19. 19

    Johnny is an amazing tallent, I watch him every week he has the looks, he can sing he can dance he is just quality. I can't wait to see how far he goes, he is going to be a superstar but he will always be an Aussie. Congratulations Johnny Australia should be proud of you, but as usual we do have that percentage of knockers. Luv you Johnny

    YUMMY YUMM! Prediction: Opening for GaGa next tour and a song with Lil Wayne before mid next year. I'm usually right about this stuff too.

  21. 21

    i dont understand why everyone is saying he's good?!?! im the first to admit when someone has talent…i LOVE watching Xfactor just so i can see the raw talent in people. since most singers today are edited to sound good but i think this kid is awful! don't get me wrong he's effing SEXY and i agree with you guys on that but his singing was absolutely god awful. I think all of you are blinded by his sexiness and don't want to see that he actually isn't great at singing. maybe it was just this video where he is bad but from THIS video all i see is bad singing.

  22. 22

    Youtube other performances. This is definitely not his best performance vocally by any means.. But he is VERY TALENTED.. is obviously so handsome.. and can absolutely move! I like him.

  23. 23

    Yes, he is good looking and can dance but fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck! he cannot sing for shit and after all, it is a singing competition! Coming from Australia and having watched the show from the beginning, there was sooooo many other way more talented people that could have went through, even beyonce said when she guest mentored that he didnt have the best vocal abilities! He made it through on Monday night with this shit performance when the two favourites to win the competition who might i add, had great erformances were in the bottom two because hormonal twelve year old girls vote with their vaginas, not their ears. Even the other judges say every week he has to go, and when he got through on Monday night, the look on the judges faces (besides his mentor) were of pure shock and disbelief!

  24. 24

    Wooow, happy again to see Johnny is on here, he so deserves it! Johnny is amazing and like Perez said, you can't deny how talented he is hehe.
    Annoying to see some Australians logging on here just to say bad stuff about Johnny, but the most of Australia loves you Johnny!

  25. 25

    sorry but the Australians logging on to purposely bash him look pretty pathetic. Obviously Johnny is still there and in the top 5 so the complaints can and should go else where. I checked this out again actually because I just got home from work and wanted to show my sister in law. The guy CLEARLY has talent. If Australia has any problem.. (which they seem not to because he is still in a competition in which you VOTE) then PLEASE send him over here because we will gladly take him! PS JOHNNY if you see this you can come here to Connecticut and stay with us! HAHAHAA

  26. 26

    What a great reflection on Australia that they create profiles on Perez's website just to slam his choice of contestant! We are allowed to like whoever we want - but some Aussies don't seem to grasp that concept. I wouldn't seek out websites that my least favourite was on to slam them! Johnny deserves to be there and Perez clearly has superior taste and we love him for it. Thank you Perez and thank you to the American's who are supportin him here :) xx

  27. 27

    You know it's sad when Australian's log onto websites and slam fellow Australian's! Whether you like him or not it is a HUGE deal that an aussie, X Factor contestant has made an international website! It makes me question, are you dirty on the fact that Johnny "cant sing" so he doesn't deserve to be on here, or are you dirty because X Factor "heart throb" Reece hasn't been mentioned? Difference between Reece and Johnny is Johnny is an all round performer who sing's and dances and puts on great stage presance, Whereas Reece is a rock dude, thats all! There are hundreds of muscians out there like him! But enough about him, Johnny has earnt his spot in the final 5, maybe if Australian actually voted for their favourite they wouldn't be in the bottom 2! Don't judge people, Johnny CAN sing and clearly alot of people agree if he's still in the competition! It's a matter of favouritism at the end of the day, and yes johnny is my favourite but thats not because he's "hot" it's because i enjoy his vocal's! I don't buy his performaces off itunes for the look's! Give the guy a break he's doing what he loves and good on him for making it this far! TEAM RUFFO

  28. 28

    Congratulations for making it on the Perez Hilton site for the second time Johnny! I have watched him from the beginning of the show and seen how much he has grown and how good he can really be! Not only that but you can see how much of a nice guy he really is and how appreciative he is of his fans! I vote for him every week, and yeah he is very good looking, no doubt about that, but I don't think that's the only reason why he is in the show!! He clearly has talent. I love you Johnny Ruffo :-)

  29. 29

    he is by far the least talented person on x factor! he voice is no where near strong enough and he is only getting votes because young girls find him attractive. This performance was honestly not his best anyway. The fact that so many more talented people have left over him is a joke.

  30. 30

    alpha chi omega ADORES johnny ruffo! I'm my chapter's president so I have FIRST DIBS on being his girlfriend when he gets to America

  31. 31

    I'm sorry, but its so embarassing to even admit your a fellow Aussie on this site.. Cos you read the comments and see what others have said.
    This isn't the consensus for Johnny's performances. Wasn't the best, but who's to say he can't sing. Not any of you thats for sure.
    He can sing. He is attractive. He is also the hardest working on the show and the MOST improved. Isnt that what these shows are about also. Instead of seeing the same old stuff each and every week in and out.
    At least you can see the growth with Johnny, unlike other contestants that have been the same week in and week out.
    I do like Johnny, I'm not afraid to say that. But I can tell you fellow Aussies its not just because he is good looking.

  32. 32

    Whats with everyone bagging out Australians for passing judgement on Johnny and saying were "turning on our own" ?? But its perfectly fine when you Americans bag out people like Katy Perry, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian? Calling them sluts and whores. Bit hypocritical dont you think? Yes, he has got talent, but no he should not win because their are others like Reece Mastin & Three Wishez that are better.

  33. 33

    johnny johnny johnny ruffo!
    he is amazing, and we Australians love him to death! he may not be the bestttttt singer, but he is getting so much better, and he is the whole package! he will go far no matter what, wins the competition or not, though the favourite to win is REECE MASATIN check him out (:
    goooodluck Johnnnnny!

  34. 34

    AUSTRALIANS love Johnny!
    enough said.

  35. 35

    Johnny is so talented. Hope Australia keeps voting for him!

  36. 36

    After Fred Astaire's first screen test, the memo from the testing director of MGM, dated 1933, read, "Can't act. Can't sing. Slightly bald. Can dance a little." He kept that memo over the fire place in his Beverly Hills home.

    Hmm something Sound familiar? and Fred Astaire was world famous and will always be remembered for his talents. God Bless you Johnny. SHINE ON!

  37. 37

    He's what you call yummy! I didn't mind the whole "boy band" thing either.. I've missed it! SEXY

  38. 38

    Johnny is amazing! Sure he doesn't have the best vocals but he deserves to win! Go Johnny :)

  39. 39

    Everyone is saying that Australians just come here to bag out one of their own, I'm pretty sure that heaps of Americans are logging on to purposely bash their own as well. Whoever said that you can like whoever you want is right, you can also dislike whoever you want, and that's what people on here are doing. The truth is that he is the worst singer left in the competition, he is also the person that has improved the most, and I wish him the best.

  40. 40

    I'm Australian and I love Johnny, people say he's not the best singer but who cares he is great and dances and overall had something about him look how huge Britney is and she isn't that strong vocally. I'm laughing that he's on here cause Natalie and Ronan (the judges) are always bitchy and mean saying he's not good enough and it's time for him to go home so sucked in he's getting international attention ha! I personally love him! He seems so nice swell and they always say he's the nicest guy there.

  41. 41

    There's no way he should have made it to the final 5. So sad that little teeny-bop girls kept him in and voted Christina out. One has actual talent, and it's not JR.

  42. 42

    Really?! REALLY?!? This guy is horrible!

  43. 43

    I think he is great! He is spicey and new and brings back that "I have a little girl crush on you" feeling Justin Timberlake used to bring me!

  44. 44

    Re: AussieJ – Me and my friends are 20 and we vote for him every week, as far as i know we're not teeny boppers! The teeny boppers vote for Reece who i dont think has mych talents other than an ok voice

  45. 45

    It's interesting that Reece fans feel the need to come to a website that likes Johnny and say Reece is better. Perhaps they are a bit insecure as he was bottom 2 last week? Either way - can't they go to a website that is supporting Reece? I've never seen a Johnny fan bad mouthing any other contestant. Pity the favour isn't returned. Perez likes him -I like him - so glad he is still in the competition.

  46. 46

    Once again please stop saying its only Australians bagging Johnny, Americans are doing it to. Here in Aus we love Johnny… Obviously or he wouldnt still be there. Stop bagging out australians!

    Re: AussieJ – Christina needed to go home, she only sounded good when she hit a high note. The rest sounded like bad karaoke.
