Chris Rene Performs Young Homie On Ellen!

Your Reaction?

He may not have won X Factor, but that doesn't mean Chris Rene is going anywhere!

The reality competition finalist made his debut performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, performing his single Young Homie, which you may remember he sang in his very first audition, while appearing alongside his mentor L.A. Reid!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

With this guy's truly inspirational story - and his really authentic, natural talent - how can you NOT root for him?!

And it's so nice to hear him say this time around "nine months sober" instead of the "two months" he originally sang the first time we heard this!

Congratulations on all of your accomplishments, Chris!

We can't wait to see where your career takes you!
