The Only 2 X Factor Performances You Need To Watch Are THESE!

| Filed under: X FactorAstro

Last night was rather disappointing on X Factor. There was only ONE performance that truly stood out!

But, thankfully, that one performance was way worth it and completely overshadowed all others!

That ONE performance was delivered by Astro, the teen phenom who delivered the best performance of "rock" week - by rapping!

Astro is SUCH a star, and never was it more apparent than in his performance last night of I'll Be Missing You, arguably our favorite performance of all the ones he's done on the show thus far!

He was riveting - from start to finish! Such a knockout! Not just a homerun but a GRAND SLAM!!!

Check it out above!

And, on the flip side, Stacy Francis was soooooo bad last night that we had to showcase how poorly she performed last night!

Stacy already regrets her performance of Celine Dion's It's All Coming Back To Me Now. But she only has herself to blame! That song was Francis' own pick for rock night!

So many notes! And so many BAD ones! Her voice was all over the place!

Was that some kind of experiment or vocal exercise????

She also seemed out of breath and lacking connection with the song.

Stacy was by far the worst performer last night - and she knew it! You could tell by the expression on her face as she was receiving the judges' harsh critiques!

Check out Francis' performance below!

- LeRoy: Boring!

- Rachel: WTF???? Why would Simon giver that song???? Such an adult song for such a young girl! It's about sex!!! Or lack thereof! She doesn't even car a car! She didn't sell this convincingly. She didn't connect to the material. And what was she wearing???? We did not feel this performance at all!

- Chris: His vocal range is limited - and this performance really showed that!

- Melanie: She was feeling it. She sounded great and looked even better, BUT…. she did not wow us last night.

- Josh: The rock category is his sweet spot! Did a great job!

- Lakoda Rayne: We hated the song choice for them! It was off brand! They're trying to create a country pop girl group yet they went with a pure pop song last night, complete with pop outfits and cheesy pop choreography. We would have preferred if they did a real country rocker, like Sweet Home Alabama. That would have suited them so much more! Last night felt too conventional and boring. Plus, their vocals were not on point! It's okay, though. We still LOVE these girls and think they will go far!

- Drew: Her voice is intoxication. However, this felt like more of the same! We've seen this. It's the same every week with her it seems like, both vocally to how her songs are arranged. We want more variety from her!

- Marcus: This felt like a bad Vegas routine! No! Just no!

- BOTTOM TWO tonight will be Stacy Francis and Lakoda Rayne, we think, with Lakoda likely going home - even though Stacy is the one who should be sent packing. Rayne has so much more potential!!

    Astro was NOT the best of the night Drew and Melanie were

  2. 2

    Stacey Francis was AWFUL! I think Lakoda Rayne was better than she was and I'm not a fan of them. I do agree Astro KILLED it! That kid is a little Jay-Z in the making. Josh did great as well, but I gotta give love to my girl Melanie. I LOVE her voice. She reminds me of Whitney before she became cracked out and Mariah before she became slutty. Still love them both though. Drew's voice is great, but damn can we say BORING?? She sounds the SAME EVERY WEEK!!! She'd do better with some up tempo or variety!

    and Rachel was awesome and was I the only one offended by the REM comment!!!! Come on L.A you've been in the business how long and you have the nerve to say their NOT a rock band but Marley is?!!!!!

    Re: hjarvis – Agree with a lot of this!!!

    Perez I usually agree with you a 100% on the Xfactor performances but I think you are a little off on this one…Josh Kracjcik's performance was definitely one to watch. He was the stand out for me last night. Foo Fighters was the PERFECT choice for him and he killed it. Astro definitely did great as well, and although Drew's performance was slightly repetitive I think it was still a good performance. I just love her voice and pray she stays around for another week to hopefully switch to something more up tempo. I think the bottom two tonight should be Leroy and Stacey. Leroy BORES me to no end but I want Stacey gone.

    Re: pie107 – Hey stupid he was not saying that REM was not a rock band. He was saying that performance of an REM song was not a rock performance.

    Astro's performance was was good. I love seeing the names of the late great rap artist. Left Eye

    HEY Simon X Factor SUCKS!, Simon,Paula and TALENTLESS Nicole are FAKE and WORTHLESS judges. only one GOOD judge and that is LA. give me American Idol and The Voice shows now they are REAL talent shows. HEY Nicole your music SUCKS !

    Bitch got crazy eyes.

  10. 10

    Umm Rap is not Rock! The judges want him to win.

  11. 11

    Why do the judges never tell the truth to Stacy? Paula and Simon were the only ones last night who called her out. When Stacy sings her "big high notes" she is really just screaming and it is SO off pitch. Can her ass just go home yet because all of her yelling is obnoxious. Josh, Astro, and Rachel were the best. I love Melanie, but I really want to see her go out of her comfort zone and shake things up a bit.

    I can't believe no one else is talking about the fact that lakoda Rayne had SIX back up singers!!! WHY does a singing group of 4 members need back up singers, much less SIX of them??? and they STILL sucked even with the back up singers!

    Perez, this is what I don't understand about the judges critique. Why is Astro phenomenal but Drew, the same every week? Is it because Astro raps to upbeat music? He is talented but , they can't accuse Drew for her sameness and not Astro. After last night, it is clear that none of these people are pop stars or deserve 5 million dollars. Are they good, yes, are they 5 million dollar good? No.

    x factor kinda does suck cuz out of so many performances they're all crap except for 1 for one or two. Astro did great as usual, he's the only one there that gets "it" and knows how to use his talent. This week I was surprised with Lakota Rayne they picked good songs and did them fairly well a few missed notes but overall pretty good. Josh almost did good he picked a good song but then just had no energy and sang under most of the time, Foo Fighters kill that shiz he needed to be more intense not just "dark" and move around the stage. other than that this really was shitastic… plus drew is annoying and BORING no one is going buy an album of slow tempo emotionless breathy vocals, sorry. Paula was right about that part. Plus I don't think the judges do a good job of mentoring, and that's why THE VOICE kicks ass cuz they pick good songs and have good arrangements.

    Re: Cha_Cha_the famous – i don't think that it is because all her songs are slow it's just she never brings up the level, all her performances are anti-climatic, they don't go anywhere and that is boring. astro is just a genius, he has to make up his stuff every week not just the arrangement, he uses writing concepts that just pass by the average listener, like this week allegory… he said he was in love with a forty year old woman even before he was born but the "woman" is really hip-hop. that was cool.

  17. 17

    Chris Rene is still the best! He brought lots of energy to the stage. Astro can't do anything but rap. Can't sing one note. Leroy Bell is a 60 year old man. He is not going to move around and dance like Marcus Canty….Leroy can just plain sing!!!

  18. 18

    While Astro is good as what he does, it is not singing and doesn't belong in a competition like this. Not to mention he just ripped off an arrangement that Puffy did an awards show years back. And why does he get to write original material every week?
    Why doesn't it surprise me that Mario loves to see a little boy performing? Maybe your wet dreams can come true and Astro can team up with Matty for you.

  19. 19

    sorry ut josgh was the only one that did his homework of a rock song, he was great but all the girls did great and stacey has a voice. the bottom 2 for me are cris rene & LeRoy

    I thought Rachel was great again this week, and I agree with the other poster about Melanie Amaro being comparable to Whitney and Mariah in younger days. Lakota Rain having additional singers didn't snap for me, but great question why they need more voices. They should be doing group songs - Dixie Chicks would have been a good choice, or maybe The Wreckers "Leave the Pieces." Stacy Francis was just bad. She should have been belting out something like "Simply the Best" - hopefully on key. Astro is talented - especially if he is writing new stuff every week. I don't like Rap. Rap is not Rock and I can respect his talent although I don't care for it. In was hoping a girl might win. We can't seem to get a girl winner on AI anymore.

  21. 21

    If leRoy stays around for another week, he could probably kill it with a Ray Lamontagne song. I hope for Paula's sake Lakoda Rain stays. What happens if she has no groups left to mentor?

  22. 22

    Mr. Hilton,

    Have you ever thought your constant verbal and emotional abuse has taken a toll on Stacy Francis to the point that now she is internalizing your harassment? It is clear you don't like Stacy but your continued written assaults are demeaning and, quite frankly, I don't know how she has managed to maintain a positive outlook with all the negativity surrounding her. I am proud of her for evolving from victim to victorious and show millions of women you can survive over domestic violence.

    Yuck! Astro and his HUGE ego.

    no thanks.

    Melanie, Rachel and Josh are the ones who seem to be worth the $5 million.
