Filipino Australian Cyrus Villanueva was declared the winner of The X Factor Australia 2015 in its grand final this Tuesday, November 24. Louise Adams was the second place winner while Jess & Matt came in third.
Cyrus performs his winning single, “Stone”, but is so happy he still keeps crying throughout the song, and can’t get the words out. So cute! Wait, we’re there. *I’m a stone in your river…” Congratulations, Cyrus!
The 19-year-old Wollongong singer is the second male winner since Reece Mastin in 2011. The last three winners were Samantha Jade, Dami Im and Marlisa Punzalan in 2014.
