Astro Shows X Factor Viewers What He's Got

by at . Comments

What do you want from Astro, people? He's from Brooklyn!

Following last week's controversial results show reaction - which was either staged by producers or simply a consequence of Astro's age/attitude - this young rapper spent his introductory video last night giving thanks to his supporters. He then kicked off his cover of "Show Me What You Got" with a reference to his hometown.

From there? What can we say: the guy has serious talent! Simon Cowell actually said he admires Astro and appreciates his "unpredictability," while L.A. Reid referred to him as a "gentleman" and Nicole Scherzinger also expressed pride in the performance. Will Astro return to the bottom two this week?

Does anyone know why they have a "sing for your life" for the bottom pair or second and third from bottom when the BETTER singer for their life is ALWAYS sent home???? What a TOTAL FARCE!!!

SHOW IS FIXED. NO WAY ASTRO SHOULD STILL BE THERE. LEROY SANG BETTER THAN MARCUS. HE SHOULD HAVE GONE. GLAD 2 MORE ARE GOING NEXT WEEK. THIS SHOW IS ANNOYING. NEVER THOUGHT ID SAY AMERICAN IDOL IS BETTER SHOW BUT THIS GROUP OF SINGERS ARE BOTTOM OF BARREL. CANT BELIEVE KELLY CLARKSON AND CARRIE UNDERWOOD ONLY WON ONE MILLION AND ONE OF THESE LOSERS WILL WALK AWAY WITH 5 MILLION. IF ASTRO WINS 5 MILLION I WILL NEVER WATCH ANOTHER FOX SHOW EVER AGAIN.

Why do they have a sing off at the end? The ones evicted the last two weeks performed better than the one ones who were selected by the judges to move forward. It is obvious that the judges decisions were made prior to the sing off. The show is fixed.

marcus and astro will only appeal to a small group - black inner city youth. this show is seeking a winner with global appeal, and that isnt either marcus or astro. the only sensible winners would be melanie josh and maybe drew.

ASTRO CAUGHT LYING IN INTERVIEWS 1) Astro said he had the most video views. NOT TRUE! Chris' monster song "Young Homie" has more views than all of Astro's songs combined.
2) Says, he's only one who writes his own lyrics. WRONG! Chris wrote the lyrics and music for "Young Homie." And two other songs.
3) On his twitter & fb he claims to be, "The first Hip-Hop artist on a major network music competition." NOPE - Chris beat Astro to the airways by 8 days. Chris is not my favorite and Chris probably won't win. Astro says we're confusing confidence for cockiness. That's not it, we just recognize BULLS**T when we see it! Since Astro would never do it, I will. Props Chris #thetruth

audery and kathy i agree. not sure who is voting for that slug astro. i guess not enough older people voted for leroy because he is a great singer and seems to be a nice guy, unlike astro. astro's mom also looks like a tough chick from the hood. i fast forward whenever this kid is on cause i just cant stand him. if they need to keep a guy that raps, keep the druggie guy cause he at least is likeable and appreciative.

The X Factor is fixed. Astro should have been gone last week. No way should Leroy and Lakoda Rain been eliminated and Astro stay. Astro thinks he is untouchable now and his is nothing but a spoiled rotten brat kid who can't sing so he raps.

I feel this kid should really humble himself. He really acts like he has been around for a long time. His behavior is a turn off for many and his mother and stepfather should sit him down and make him eat a piece of humble pie. Although he apologized for his behavior he still don't get it. He will not go all the way because he thinks the world owe him something. He is another kid trying to make it. There are too many who would love to be in his place. He need to realize this!!!!!!!
Now he says the votes are rigged because of headphones. My family was a fan until the true behavior came out.

He 1st claimed the votes were rigged because of the headphones he wanted to wear weren't from the sponsors. He couldn't accept that people didn't vote for him. He behaved like a brat & was rewarded for bad behavior just like many people in the spotlight. When Simon said to him "your mother will be disappointed in your behavior" he replied "no she won't". As a mother of 3 sons, 1 the same age as Astro, I would be very disappointed & embarrassed. He acts like he's famous & that he's been around forever & paid his dues. I don't think I would believe in or buy CD's from a rapper on a realty show, a bratty rapper at that.
