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:

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!

The Only 4 X Factor Performances You Need To Watch Are THESE!

| Filed under: X FactorAstroMelanie AmaroChris Rene


Wow! Wow! Wow! A LOT of people stepped their game up last night! BIG TIME!

Only 1 of the 4 acts we predicted to make the Top 4 of X Factor were amongst our four favorite performances from yesterday!

Our favorite from last night - by far -was Rachel Crow! We were totally blown away!

Her performance (top video above) was most definitely not Disney! That was our biggest critique of her to date - that she felt a little too kiddie. However, Rachel's performance of the Etta James classic I'd Rather Be Blind was so mature! Well beyond her years!

Such a pleasant surprise! We didn't know she had that in her! So soulful! So BIG! So nuanced! So poised! AND she chose the song herself!

We didn't know she had all that in her, but we're thrilled we got a chance to see it! This little girl is not to be discounted! It was her best performance to date!

Our second favorite performance of last night was Josh Krajcik's! He killed it! Murdered!

That was THE PERFECT song for him! Totally his sweet spot! It was as if he wrote it himself! He poured himself into it and her heart came out!

He felt it! He sold it! And we bought it!

Check out Josh's take on the Beatles classic With A Little Help From My Friends above!

Another standount performance last night was Marcus Canty! He really WENT FOR IT! Kudos to him!

His vocals were on point! He was confident and really showed he's a great showman as well as a great singer!

His best performance yet too!

Check out his take on the Mary J. Blige's I'm Going Down below!

And, once again, we were soooooo impressed by Lakoda Rayne! We still find it hard to believe they were put together on the show and have only been singing as a group for a couple of months.

They were so tight! So tight!

And….

These girls look like superstars! The camera loves them! And, thankfully, they've got the talent to back it up!

Their vocals were flawless! And their stage presence is electric!

We LOVE them!!!!

Check out Lakoda Rayne's take on Keith Urban's Somebody Like You below (bottom video)!

The Only 4 X Factor Performances You Need To Watch Are THESE!

| Filed under: X FactorAstroMelanie AmaroChris Rene


Once again our original picks to make it to the top 4 of American X Factor provided the best performances of the evening on the show last night!

This week, though, THE BEST performance - by far - belonged to Melanie Amaro! Watch her performance above. She gave us chills!!!! Melanie was THAT good! Her take on Desperado was just… wow. Wow. Wow!

The control! The range! The emotion! It was flawless!

Also giving an exceptional performance last night, despite not the most obvious song choice for her, was Drew Ryniewicz, who has such a special voice! It was our second favorite performance of the evening.

Drew took Nelly's rap song Just A Dream and turned it into something magical!!! Watch her performance above.

The only two other performances of note this week were, once again, Lakoda Rayne and Astro!

Vocally, Lakoda Rayne were stunning with their rendition of the Fleetwood Mac classic Landslide! On-point! Such exquisite harmonizing with each other! And they're a group that was put together on the show and have only been working as a team for a couple of months!

We love their voices, but we think the presentation was a bit cheeseball. The choreography (all that moving) was unnecessary for this song, in our opinion. This performances would have been a lot more effective if it was just all about their beautiful voices and that beautiful song without any distraction. Watch their performance below.

Astro continues to impress with his mad skills!!! So tight! And so young!

We loved his performance of Hip Hop Hooray. We would just like next week to see a little more variety and depth from him - and that's all about song choice! We'd suggest Kanye's Jesus Walks or a song likes that!

All of these 4 acts, though, are soooo good and could really go on to be relevant artists after X Factor is over!

As for everyone else???? We share our thoughts about all the other performances…. after the jump! Plus we choose our pick for whom we think/hope will get voted off tonight!
