First of all, a huge thank you to my best friend, big brother and BAE @bigtmusic. Wouldn’t have done this journey with anyone else by my side, and have honestly made the best memories with you that I can’t thank you enough for! His performance tonight was UN-FREAKING-BELIEVABLE!!!! I’m in this for you brother. #Tyrus,” he said.

Every week full of hard work, stress and A LOT of fun has led to tonight and I am SO grateful you have all supported me! THANK YOU Australia! This is unbelievable and it’s honestly such an honour to be in this position. HUGE congrats to Jess & Matt and Louise Adams – GRAND FINAL HERE WE COME!”


Cyrus said he cannot wait to go home to his hometown Wollongong.

And last, but definitely not least – SEE YOU TOMORROW WOLLONGONG! I’m coming home with Chris to show him how great my hometown is. From busking at @eatstreetmarket and serenading @three_chimneys, I’ll be returning to perform alongside the man himself at Wollongong Crown Street Mall at 4:30PM, and I can’t wait! Hope to see you there! #xfactorau,” Cyrus said.
