Things were trully shaken up on last nights X Factor USA, with a this weeks elimination not following the past two weeks trend. Paula Abdul was relieved to hear Steve Jones call out Lakoda Rayne’s name to ensure they perform next week. Rihanna performed during the the elimiation procedure coming out of cage to her new hit single ‘We Found Love”.

Onto the elimiation the bottom two were Astro and Stacy Francis, both performed well with Astro performing his own version of the song “Never Can Say Goodbye” and Stacy giving a heart felt performance of “Amazing Grace”.

In the end the judges chose to send Stacy Francis with only Nicole Scherzinger voting for her own act.

    It is now obvious that Astro will win, regardless of who the fans vote for.

  • Kelsie

    America….SEND ASTRO HOME!!! He is a rude, obnoxious egotistical smartasss who needs to learn a lesson in life that your attitude can make or break you. The judges, Paula and Simon, made a huge error in voting to keep him in the competition. Now his attitude will really explode because they gave in to it. What a shame for another contestant who sang her heart out in an attempt to stay in the competition. What teenager in America could possibly look up to Astro after last night’s dismal performance and attitude. He needs to be held accountable America……send him home once and for all!

    • Astrid_charlene

      This kind of Rapper only knows mumbling on the song, every week same style no multi talents….. very bored. Is this boy worths for USA X-Factor US$ 5M ?? I agreed send him home….

    • Andy Mcardle

      Great Comments – This is an obnoxious bratt who is full of himself. I am sure that America will do the right thing next weekend and bloody get rid of this rude one trick pony.

      • Bluskyz08

        That’s it. The final straw. This show is a total joke. So you decided to keep the young BRAT around after he went into his little temper tantrum.Now all young contestants will think it’s ok to do what astro did. Thankfully my wife and I will not be apart of this fiasco anymore. DONE….never again!!!!!

        • curt985

          I agree with you and I wanted to stop watching this farce also! But, I’m sticking around so I can see his face when he goes next week! Cross fingers!

    • AGNES LAMBIE

      i think you should all be ashamed of yourself for picking on a young boy ( ASTRO ) YOU ARE ALL A SHOWER OF BRATS .OK THE WEE BOY DID NOT WANT TO SING A 2ND SONG LAST WEEK HE WAS SCARED AND DID NOT WANT TO BE SENT HOME .ASK YOURSELF ONE QUESTION WOULD YOU AND COULD YOU BRASS NECK IT AND DO WHAT HE DONE AND SING INFRONT OF MILLIONS..I DONT THINK SO ..I STAY IN SCOTLAND AND I WANT ASTRO TO WIN WIN WIN

      • Private

        only a stupid fucking idiot would find astro talented, ironic that lala reid calls out probabllt the best performer as doing the same thing over and over, all astro does is rap and grap his cock, hardly age appropriate…

      • Bluskyz08

        So just because he has the guts to get up there you think it’s ok to do what he did? Tells us where your priorities are at. Good job.

    • curt985

      You hit the nail right on the head! I could not have put it any better! Up until now, I thought that I and among very few thought the same way, that,” Ass-tro has to Go!” I’m a poet and didn’t know it! HA! All together, “Ass-tro has to Go, Ass-tro has to Go, Ass-tro has to Go!”

  • Mikki37

    If Astro was my child or grandchild he would have a lot to answer for the attitude, disrespect and rudeness he displayed when called upon to sing in the competition between himself and Stacy Francis. Clearly, Stacy should have been kept in the compitition because she sang melodiously and showed maturity at a time when her heart was breaking.

    • Bebe_bond

      Last night the display by Astro was appalling. Simon always said he worried about contestants being too young to take the knocks.
      To my mind Astro proved this to be dead right.
      I think Simon misunderstood the audience. They were all screaming Astro, surely because HE was the one they thought should go.
      What a dreadful example he showed. They have made a rod for their backs with him. He will now be impossible. Don’t we have enough out of hand demanding stars with attitude.
      We need nice greatfull to be there people back in the industry. Singers a million times better than him have gone home.
      I suggest they have a new program for rappers. RAP in not SINGING. It’s wrong to judge the two against each other.
      We have all be told over and over ‘It’s a SINGING contest. It’s time judges prove that.

  • Leewilliamsimons

    Astro the new jay-z. Writes his own lyrics which flow who cares about his attitude he’s a teenger what do you expect!

    • Anthony Bray

      Obnoxious behaver should never be rewarded, this young man is very very rude, very very egotistical and a shocking example to the young people of America, he needs to learn some manners. SimonCowell and Paula Abdul should be ashamed of themselves for allowing him to progress in this competition, i am pretty sure that the American public will put things right in due course.

    • Annie

      he is a rude, obnoxious little nerd. He is a little boy pretending to be a grown up … oh, and he is SO BORING!!

  • Teresa

    I was horrified that Astro was kept in the competition, he needs to be taken off the show for his attitude. As a huge fan of the show I felt that most of the judges not only let us down but themselves and they should be ashamed for sending Stacy home and keeping Astro.

    Hey Simon, I am from England and this would not of been tolerated at home, I always believed in you becasue of your frankness and down to earth attitude, have you really forgotten your priciples!!! Obviously someone higher than you is calling the shots or is it because Astro will pull in millions of $$$.

  • Cleo Burris

    If anyone shoud be voted off, it’s DRU !!!! I am so tired of her whining. She doesn’t do anything different, and it’s passed time for her to go.

  • Frank_onthemix

    YO.. YO.. YO.. look at eminem guys.. astro had his attitude.. some ego.. yeaa..
    that’s what superstar had.. as long as their could entertaint us.. so what da hack..
    keep it up.. astro.. yeaaaa…

  • Fcsaenz

    I am very disappointed in Paula and Simon, seems like someone higher is calling the shots, Astro’s behavior did not warrant him staying on the show. The integrity of the show has been tarnished, if Astro doesn’t go next week, I’m no longer watching the show. Besides I’m tired of listening to rap from Astro, it never changes….whats the purpose of the people voting if the judges are going to pick their favorites….

    • Art

      I totally agree with Fcsaenz. Paula and Simon tarnished the show for good leaving Astro on. He has done nothing for the show so far and will not in the future. It is obvious that these judges do not have the final say so.

  • John Sim

    WHY HAVE A ‘SING OFF’? I was an Astro fan but [apart from his antics] he did not sing well in the sing off, and, based on that should not have gone through. If the judges are voting for the one ‘who will go the furthest’ WHY HAVE A SING OFF. It is insulting viewers intelligence.

    • Richard

      everybody should listen to themselves. This program is suppose to be a singing competition not a rapping competition. The little prick cant even carry a note. All he is doing is rapping hell I want to here him sing not talk and not this A’ho,A’ho, shit either. ‘Cause that is what he is “HA,HA,HA.” Just sing a song with a tune that obviously he can not do. Even Chris can carry a tune and he rapps. So why cant that little shit do it that is the whole point of this competition isnt it? That is why they started this new show right? For 5mil I can get up there and say a couple of rythmes if that is what they want but that isnt what they want. they want someone that is going pack the concert hall with their voices not talking. they want to here singing not rapping.

  • paradigm323

    The Judges broke the rules of the show by putting Astro through. The “sing off” is supposed to determine the fate of the contestants, not who has the best chance to win. I am not sure I like this show anymore because of that. I for one do Not think Astro has the best chance to win. He is good but not all that. Also agree with earlier poster, tired of DRU!

  • Rio-vida

    that was the end for stacy and that is the end for “X” Factor for me , simon and his judges just made a full of thenselves !

  • http://twitter.com/judy0905 Judith Orris

    I don’t like the way L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell contradicted themselves. L.A, told Astro that he should send him home for the way he was acting, but didn’t because he said he had to stick with his guy. And Simon said that Astro was being very disrespectful to the judges, the audience and even his own mom and he should said him home. But he didn’t. He said #Even though I don’t want to do this, I am sending Stacy Francis home, which I did not think was fair; eventhough her last performance, I admit, was horrible.

  • http://twitter.com/judy0905 Judith Orris

    Simon and LA were wrong. They should have both sent Astro home. His performance was cast directly at the judges. They bothe said they should send him home, but they didn’t. LA said it was because he was his guy. And Simon said even though he didn’t want to, he was sending Stacey home. How could they contradict themselves that way? I hope this next show is Astro’s last.

    • joe Latona

      verry well said judith, i hope the judes read these e-mails . Cant wait to see what happens tonight, it would be to the judges to send him home as no one cares for astro at all,!!!!!!!!!!! this is a bunk show if they dont do annything!!! well take care, joe

  • Truthistruth

    FOR REAL RAP AND A HUMBLE HEART….WITH GRATITUDE ATTITUDE…..CHECK OUT KiNG ASLAN aka “The LAST LEGacY”……tell LA REID AND SIMONE…..A REAL TALENTED RAPPER IS WAITING FOR HIS OPPORTUNITY AND HE IS MATURE 40 AND READY….LIVES HIS LYRICS!

  • Sara Wasiuddin

    AMERICA please send Astro home. He don’t deserve to win or stay another week. He thinks he’s better than Jay-Z. He is too cocky. I never liked him since the first day. I don’t know what the judges are seeing in him. The only thing he does is write lyrics and rap. He never sang. He can’t sing. Too arrogant. He was mad at the audience, at America for not voting for him. Like seriously? I have never seen any contestant or artist behaving that way. He will only be successful with the help of his fans and public. He was totally rude towards them last show. So, who is he performing for? He already wanted to quit!! If it’s America’s Next Top Model, Tyra has already sent that sort of contestant home. :)

    Hey schmucks producing this! The ratings suck because you are putting on a ghetto welfare case who you are simply promoting for your agenda. X-Factor’s renewal will be reversed if you don’t send the brat back to Brooklyn where he belongs. He’ll end up locked up in 10 years regardless if he wins or loses.

    • Levynissim

      Your racist comments are disgusting. I also don’t like Astro but not because he is black. I don’t like him because of his attitude and also because his one trick so-so rap is getting really boring.

  • Anonymous

    The longer ASStro stays on the show, the lower the ratings will go. But FOX will make him the winner because for some odd reason they think that having a black winner = money! Food stamps don’t buy you a lot morons from England!!! No wonder the European Union is in shambles, this is their thinking. “We are the World”…. Go to Detroit and tell me how they deserve the same treatment as a family in Rhode Island.

  • Eleora

    I am really disappointed at the judges’ elimination of stacy. why ask teh audience to vote when judges will choose at the sing off? the act with the least vote should go or judges should honour the better singer, rather than their misguided sentiments.

    Astro was a favourite of mine but no more… he’s a brat and should be sent home. i think the age limit for such reality shows should be set at minimum 18, at least we know we have more mature people performing.

  • Pam

    Get rid of Astro!! He is too one dimensional. And more important he isn’t any good and not someone I would want my kids to look up too. His behavior was unworthy of a worthy talent and should not have been rewarded. America doesn’t want him – isn’t that obvious by the posts?????!!!!!

  • Ty Sam

    Paula, you asked when astro would suck? well, he threw the answer in your face this time. HE SUCKS!!!! Who does he think he is anyway? spoilt child.

    Please keep kids out of reality competetions. they should be home minding their homework and learning how to grow up.

  • Anonymous

    Can you imagine what Astro will be like if he becomes successful? What an attitude??!! He epitomizes the spoiled brat attitude of so many kids now who are rarely ever disciplined and who feel entitled. What does he do for his mother? Anything around the house? He needs to learn to be humble on some level. I think it is appalling how he feels so deserving that he can be in your face to everyone who dares to not bow down to him. What a bad role model for youth everywhere.

  • alan

    It is pretty amazing how some of you post comments online, talking shit about a 14 year old boy who is just trying his best, and is pursuing his dream. He should be allowed to be upset when he is put in the bottom two, he might not have had the best attitude on stage, but you could see he was really upset and was even brought to tears. I think he is extremely talented and deserves a whole lot better than internet thugs who got nothing better to do than talk shit about others online.
    Hope you keep pursuing your dreams and never believe you are not good enough astro.

    ASTRO does not deserve a chance like this. He has a terrible attitude. Too many contestants that need and want this opportunity!! Hope he gets the boot this week. I am very disappointed that the judges didn’t get rid of him. Making my family not happy with the judges. Talented?? maybe so….but not enough to put up with his diva attitude already. Imagine if he really was famous?? GET HIM OFF

    Astro is the least talented left on the show! He is a one trick pony and sounds the same every week! L.A.Reid quit downing Drew because Astro doesn’t hold a candle to her! L.A. you pick the worst songs every week! I agree with you Kelsie 100%! Also I think it would be sad to see him beat out Josh, Drew ,Melanie,LeRoy or Lakoda Rayne! They can sing so good and have way better attitudes!

I am sure all the judges have spoken with u n pointed out the fact that u r loosing supporters in the biggest way, that’s WHY u r PRETENDING to b humble now n excuse urself from ur behaviour … BUT WHAT WE SAW ALL THESE WEEKS TRULY IS THE REAL U !! AMERICA, DO NOT FALL INTO HIS PRETENSE … KICK HIM OUT ASAP!

  • Keeping hip-hop ALIVE.

    You are ALL seriously disturbed – do you know how hard it is to even write a rap? it’s not chucking random words and mumbling, it’s making sure every rhyme, every sentence has a meaning and flows with style and easy confidence, you have to make sure you hit every word with every beat. He’s the one that write his own verses and works hard to make it work with the chosen topic, all in the space of a WEEK, how can you not call that ‘talent’. And plus he’s barely a teen, of course he’s going to react like that, he’s got EONS of time to mature! He says it right every week, he’s bringing hiphop back, and I couldn’t be more relieved. America, if you did your job and voted for the right person in the first place – you wouldn’t be in this place. And just so you know, there are celebs and teens everywhere around the world rooting for Astro, and stupidly – it’s up to America.

    Hi Americans!! This is Julia from India-Chennai. I watch this show and just did not like the fact that Simon had chosen Astro!! Very shocking and he cant be compared with a fine gem (Stacy) She has talent and entertains, well as Astro isnt. Just a rapper and cant sing for nuts including Pitches and tempo. Simon if you are reading this, please.you have mentioned earlier that X-factor is not just voice, its talent and how the contestants entertain the crowd. If you just look for the voice alone, then move those contestants to “The Voice” and not X-Factor.and moreover please “do not” give negative comments of the opponents since this brings down their votes.America !!Please vote for voice sync with entertainment together!!Thank you!

  • nissim

    Astro is a one trick pony. He can’t sing! He won’t sing! I am so bored of him that this week I just listened to ten minutes of his mediocre rap and then fast forwarded (on my PVR) to the next act.

    Get rid of him. This is a singing competition, not a one trick rap competition.

  • lincoln

    Rihanna’s performance was disgusting – total lip sync job, sounded horrible. Bruno Mars was great. Why in the world is Astro, that punk, arrogant little brat, still on the show? Melanie and Josh are true contenders. Drew is great but limited. Crow needs a few more years.

    • shelly

      Isn’t this a singing competition? Then why is Astro there – he’s a talker, not a singer.

    Why can astro write his own songs and no one else
    I’ve just started watching x factor USA and had to turn the volume down when astro sang – as it just sounded awful.
    He should of been voted out by now
    Will not be tuning in again

  • Joe

    I USED TO WATCH X FACTOR BUT NOT ANYMORE AS NOW THE JUDGES ACCEPT ANYONE…… WHY ARE THEY ACCEPTING RAPPERS?……… X FACTOR SHOULD BE ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN REALLY SING NOT FOR RAPPERS THAT ONLY TALK NONSENSE IN THEIR LYRICS….. RAPPERS ARE ARROGANT, RUDE, VIOLENT……. I HATE RAP AND IT SHOULD BE BANNED FOR GOOD AS IT MESSES WITH YOUNG PEOPLE’S HEADS…… A GOOD EXAMPLE IS THAT STUPID RAPPER ASTRO KID – BRAIN BRADLEY…. YOU CAN TELL HOW BAD RAP IS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE……. HE IS A TYPICAL RAPPER……. HE IS VIOLENT, RUDE, ARROGANT….. I BET HE WILL RAP ABOUT TELLING OTHER YOUNG PEOPLE TO DO BAD THINGS, SUCH AS, TO KILL, TO STEAL, TO TAKE DRUGS, TO BULLY OTHERS, ETC.
