Astro Acts His Shoe Size While Escaping Simon & X Factor Elimination

Astro and Stacy Francis ended up in the bottom 2 with Astro copping a major attitude.

Astro did not want to perform for the judges to save his spot. Bad decision. When your own mentor L.A. Reid wants to send you home, you messed up.

With the judges 2-1 to send Stacy Francis, the decision is in Simon Cowell's hands.

Simon went off on Astro and there were either cheers saying Astro...or was it A-Hole?  Simon brought up Astro's mom and saying he was being disrespectful.

Astro said if he is in the bottom two, he doesn't want to perform for people who don't want me here.  What's going to happen if he ends up in the bottom 2 again?

Astro lost fans after what he said and did.  Simon sent home Stacy but said he almost changed his vote because of Astro's attitude.

There is no way Astro is making it to the top 4 at this point and time with only 9 acts left.

What did you think of Astro's attitude?-DocFB

Diagnosis:  The right act was sent home.....grow the heck up though....


Review: L.A. Reid Makes Right Decision On 1st Live Show Elimination

L.A. Reid and the contestants of X Factor he was mentoring went first. Astro (Brian Bradley) rapped over "Jump" by Kris Kross.

His performance was everything we expected from Astro; arrogant, flashy, and spot on.  Kid has energy and doesn't run out of breath.  It is obvious he is moving on to the next round.

L.A. Reid's song choice for Chris Rene was horrible.  Reid showed he is more arrogant than Astro when Nicole was critical of the song choice of "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" from Rose Royce.  It was not Rene's best performance, but his story is so good, there is no way they would get rid of him so soon.

Phillip Lomax was doomed the moment Reid said he was sensational when he introduced him. Lomax surprised me with his upbeat performance. He even lost the hat. Simon was critical and called it cabaret. Paula called it "Mighty Fine" and I started to wonder what was in her Pepsi cup. It was the best performance so far by Lomax but not good enough. He would need Canty to mess up bad.

Marcus Canty was the next performer and had no lack of confidence. Singing Culture Club? What? An upbeat version as well. I am not sure about song selection. Nicole said he was born to sing. Paula was impressed. Even Simon liked it. Not sure if I agreed with Simon or if he is was trying to make it harder on Reid.

Lomax was eliminated. It as the right choice even with Rene's horrible performance. Rene better kick some booty next week or he is gone.-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Rene no longer the man in this catagory


Brian “Astro” Bradley Performs On XFactor

Brian "Astro" Bradley performed on X Factor last night. He is one of the youngest contestants....and the only rapper.

He seemed sweet on Rihanna, especially when she said his name. Astro performed to "The Message" by Grand Master Flash.  In L.A. Reid's eyes, he can do no wrong.

We think he did well enough to make it to the next round. This time, not so arrogant either in his performance.

What did you think?-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Because He Is The Only Rapper Is To His Advantage
