Fil-Aussie Cyrus Villanueva Makes it to Top 7 of ‘X Factor Australia’

Filipino-Australian singer Cyrus Villanueva has made it to the top 7 of “The X Factor Australia.

The 19-year-old singer sang “It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over” by Lenny Kravitz during the Top 8 Live Show which earned him enough votes to move on to the next round along with other contestants Natalie Conway, Michaela Barano, Louise Adams, Big T (Tangaroa Te Tai), Mahalia Simpson and Jess & Matt.

Although judges James Blunt and Guy Sebastian weren’t too crazy about the song choice saying it wasn’t rock enough for this week’s theme and Dannii Minogue saying it wasn’t Villanueva’s best week, his mentor Chris Isaak was still impressed with his performance.
