Hmm…wonder why…???

Looks like X Factor US winner Melanie Amaro will be getting some company at Sony Music!

Simon Cowell confirmed that Josh Krajcik, Chris Rene, and Astro will get their own deals in 2012.

Sony Music has a nice thing going with Simon through Sony's co-owned Syco Music. It will be Syco Music that will promote, record, and market anyone that Simon signs, including these three dudes. Indeed, even though Melanie is Simon's priority, he explained to sources that he would "mad" to let the three male contestants go.

As we previously reported, Astro has already hooked up with X Factor UK's Cher Lloyd on one of her tracks and Rene's Young Home will reportedly drop in January 2012. But what's next for these bright stars? Will any other contestants join them?

Who do U want to see from X Factor US make it big?

P.S. - Just as a refresher, check out performances from all four incredible X Factor artists AFTER THE JUMP!

Astro Gabs With Wendy Williams

| Filed under: X FactorWendy WilliamsAstro

So Astro got voted off X Factor, but he's still workin' the talk show unit!

Wendy Williams had him on to talk about his "talented but arrogant" run on the show, and he explained everything…well, almost everything.

But we're pretty sure we know what he's talking about when he refers to the "incident" he felt he was being punished for.

Watch and see what he says for URself! Presss play!

Sure, he apologized, but now X Factor's Astro admits that he's "ignorant" too.

The 15-year-old rapper who was booted off the singing competition show was called out for having a bad attitude with judges earlier in the season.

And now it looks like he knows he was a damn fool wrong.

Eatin' some humble pie, Astro says:

X Factor: We Were SHOCKED When This Happened!

| Filed under: X FactorAstro

Ugh!

Drew Ryniewicz had such a great run on X Factor, but unfortunately, she was eliminated. Boo!!

We were shocked. SHOCKED!

We don't like or agree with this, but we DO agree with Astro getting the boot.

He needs a little more humility, a little more experience with the real world, and if he's still moving after that, then he could be a star. But right now…

Sigh. Anyways, watch Drew's Listen To Your Heart! It's lovely.

Astro Raps Like A Little Jay Z With Show Me What You Got!

| Filed under: Music MinuteX FactorAstro

Wow! He came back with power! He came back with all he had! We love it!

Astro had some major attitude problems last week, pulling a quitter 'tude and giving lip on national television.

He even pulled a major foul when he disobeyed producers by wearing Beats headphones on stage (X Factor endorses Sony).

But he's apologized and this performance reminds us why we've loved him from day one!

The fifteen year old was wild with Show Me What You Got! A-mazing.

We're not sure if he's the X Factor winner, but we do know he's extremely talented. There's no denying that!

What do U guys think?? Will his talent take him to the top??

Astro Apologizes For Cocky X Factor Actions

| Filed under: Tacky & TrueX FactorAstro

Last week, Astro displayed very poor behavior on the stage of X Factor. When he was put in the bottom two, he gave some major 'tude and it didn't sit well.

Stacy Francis ended up being the one to go (bout time), but Astro was still left with a lot of explaining to do.

We even got the EXCLUSIVE word that he blatantly disobeys producers' rules on the show! SMH!

But we're guessing Astro is finally realizing the effect of his actions, because he went to his Facebook to make an apology:
