Chris Rene: An X Factor Original

by at . Comments

For the second time this season, Chris Rene broke out an original song on The X Factor.

The performance followed a cover of Rihanna's "Live Your Life," and received nothing but praise from the judges. Nicole Scherzinger told Rene the sky is "the limit" for him, while Paula Abdul told him to "trust the universe" for some reason. As for Simon Cowell?

"You’ve got $5 million at stake and you decide to sing your own song," the panelist said, waiting a beat for dramatic effect: "That was a stroke of genius."

He's a good rapper too. He sing/raps and that's different from what Astro does. Search for his own songs on youtube and you'd get why people are going crazy for him.

Chris Rene is our home town boy - keep reaching for the stars, young man. You are an inspiration with a deeply fabulous voice, and a heart just as big.

Chris Rene is a brilliant star! Noone can touch his awesome talent. There is something bigger than life about his humility and presence. As LA said after his first performance, he is the truth.
