WATCH: Pinoy Singer Wows Judges on X Factor Australia 2015

Cyrus Villanueva is off to a good start as he wowed the judges with his performance during the 5 Seat Challenge in this year’s season of The X Factor Australia.

The 18-year-old Filipino student, who wishes to follow the footsteps of teen Pinay singer Marlisa Punzalan who became the youngest winner of the competition last year, impressed the judges with his ballad rendition of Robyn’s “Dancing on My Own.”

His performance earned him one of the five slots in the men-under-25 category that Chris Isaak will mentor.

During his audition, Villanueva received standing ovation from all judges with his acoustic version of The Weeknd’s “Earned It”.
