Fil-Aussie Cyrus Villanueva makes it to 'X-Factor Australia' Top 6

MANILA, Philippines – Filipino Cyrus Villanueva made it to the Top 6 of X-Factor Australia on Tuesday, October 27.

Cyrus shared the good news on Twitter and thanked his supporters with this short message:

THANKYOU. #xfactorau #Top6 — Cyrus (@cyrusvill) October 27, 2015


On Monday, October 26, Cyrus impressed the judges with his version of Adele's song "Rumor Has It." Judge Guy Sebastian praised Cyrus for his performance, saying, "We want to feel like we’re watching a superstar. And you owned it, that was a massive comeback."


Cyrus may be moving on to the next round, but 24-year-old Michaela Baranov was eliminated after she struggled with Rihanna's "Diamonds."

Last week, Cyrus made it to the Top 7 after he performed "It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over" by Lenny Kravitz during the Top 8 Live Show.

Cyrus first wowed judges Guy Sebastian, Dannii Minogue, James Blunt, and Chris Isaak, and the X-Factor Australia audience with his audition, where he crooned The Weeknd's "Earned It."



Now on its 7th season, X-Factor Australia is hosted by Luke Jacobz. Filipino Marlisa Punzalan won the 2014 season of X-Factor Australia. –
