50 Cent Performs With Astro, L.A. Lakers on X Factor Finale

by at . Comments

Rapper 50 Cent, never one to be accused of family friendly entertainment, saw half of his performance bleeped out, but still rocked the house on The X Factor finale.

Astro may not be the inaugural X Factor winner, but the young rapper did make his way onto the finale, rapping alongside Fiddy. That's a feat in and of itself!

Also, L.A. Lakers guard Derek Fisher introduced Mr. Cent, his good friend, and other Lakers - Matt Barnes and Steve Blake - also made it up on stage somehow.

We can't explain it either. Just watch the performance below.

In case the censoring rendered it all unclear, 50 performed his latest single "Wait Until Tonight" followed by his 2003 smash hit, "In Da Club," featuring Astro.

The kid's got game ... unlike Barnes, Blake and Fisher, who just waved their arms a lot ... with Kobe Bryant hurt, maybe they're getting in shape to play extra minutes?


Please show me where the producers of the X Factor call it a singing competition. I urge you to find that anywhere. You won't. They were looking for an entertainer with the x factor. Period. Fortunately, the world runs on 'different strokes for different folks'. I could have done without listening to Mariah Carey Jr every week...but she won anyway. I think Astro had the most originality...he just needs a few years to handle something this big as an adult...he's just a boy. I agree Chris Rene wasn't that great of a singer, but his story is inspiring and that took him all the way to the final 3. Clearly...NOT a singing competition. Josh can sing...but I'd likely fall asleep if I had to watch him in concert. Yawn.


I have a Good Name for Astro!! 5 cents!! Seriously tho, I think there should be an X Factor Show exclusively for Rap Fans. Then they can watch it, listen to it, groove to it, and enjoy it!! Then people like us, can not be needing to MUTE the REMOTE thru a SINGING COMPETITION!! If Simon Cowell wants to keep his X Factor fans watching his show next year, it, had better not include Rap!! I don't get it!!! Rap is no where near singing!! Chris Rene was off on every song he tried!! The Voting MUST be Rigged!!! Unless there are Major changes to the format of the show next year, I will not be watching it!! American Idol is far superior !! X Factor 2011, is just a second rate warm up Act for 2012 American Idol!! My opinion!! And get rid of LA Reid, Nicole and , I'm sorry to Paula!!
