There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

We're really very disappointed him. From the very start, this young star was one of our personal faves, but last night, he showed a side of himself that was really quite ugly.
On The X Factor, two acts found themselves selected for the bottom two: Astro and Stacy Francis. All things considered, everyone knew how this was going to go down, but still, Astro pulled a serious attitude with the judges, not wanting to perform to be saved.
But he did perform and while his body language and presence were lackluster, his rhyme was just fine and he captured a lot of people's attention with his personal rap to Never Can Say Goodbye by the Jackson 5. He was saved … but only because of the OBVIOUS reasons to toss out Stacy. If he had pulled that crap against anyone else, we don't think he would have made it through. Something to think about, kid.
Check out Astro's less than stellar performance (above).
