WATCH: Fil-Aussie Cyrus Villanueva’s ‘X Factor Australia’ grand final performances
One of Cyrus' grand final numbers is a cover The Weeknd's 'Earned It,' which he sang in his audition

MANILA, Philippines – Filipino-Australian Cyrus Villanueva once again showed the judges what he’s made of during his final performance on the X Factor Australia, Monday, November 23.

For his first song, he revisited The Weeknd’s “Earned It,” which is what he first sang to impress the judges at his audition. Joining Cyrus and his smooth vocals onstage was a group of dancers whose performance added to the atmosphere of the show.

“Very fitting that you would sing the lyrics ‘earned it’ and ‘deserved it’ because you definitely earned your position on the finals,” said judge Guy Sebastian on his performance.

Chris Isaak, a judge and Cyrus’ mentor, said, “This guy has the X factor and tonight he’s going to prove it.”

The next song he sang was his “Winner’s Song,” “Stone.” If he wins, “Stone” will be Cyrus’ debut single. Hear Cyrus singing the lyrics “I’m a stone in your river, every night I’m with you” to the song’s catchy tune below:

Cyrus once again showed off his strong vocals by accompanying his beautiful performance of Labrinth’s “Jealous” with a simple piano accompaniment. 

Cyrus is up against two other acts competing to be the winner of X Factor Australia –Jess and Matt, and Louise Adams.

Cyrus sent out this tweet on the night of the Grand Final:
