Fil-Aussie Cyrus Villanueva makes it to Top 5 in 'X-Factor Australia'

MANILA, Philippines – Filipino-Australian Cyrus Villanueva once again wowed the judges on X-Factor Australia as he moved on to the Top 5 in the Tuesday, November 3 episode.

On Monday, November 2, Cyrus earned praise for performing Bob Dylan's "Knocking on Heaven's Door."



James Blunt told Cyrus: "Cyrus, the question is not what can you sing but what can’t you sing. I think I have caught the Cyrus virus!"

"You are nailing it week after week. Sometimes, this show just captures people in their prime and all the stars align," juror Dannii Minogue said.

Meanwhile, Natalie Conway was eliminated from the show, after she failed to get the nod of the judges and fans for her performance of "Toca Miracle."

After the show, Cyrus posted a message for Natalie on Instagram.

It just gets harder and harder each week, and tonight was no different. We are all gonna miss your bubbly, beautiful presence, and I know you are gonna continue to blow the world away! Thankyou to everyone who voted to keep me in.  #xfactorau A photo posted by Cyrus Villanueva (@cyrusvill) on Nov 3, 2015 at 2:57am PST
