Astro Suspects an 'X Factor' Conspiracy Put Him in the Bottom Two (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 22nd 2011 2:45PM
Last week, the 15-year-old 'X Factor' rapping phenom Astro found himself in the Bottom Two of Simon Cowell's talent competition. When the judges announced he'd have to go head-to-head with Stacy Francis to save his spot on the show, he threw a mini temper-tantrum, refused to perform another song and shed a few tears.

As it turns out, the emotional incident has helped Astro grow his online fanbase. He told 'Good Day L.A.' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) that after the rebellious episode, he picked up 20,000 fans on his Facebook page. And while he's apologized for the episode and is trying to put it behind him, he's still skeptical that he deserved to be in the Bottom Two. "Something went on behind the scenes in the show ... I don't see how you can have the most followers out of all the contestants, the most views on YouTube and get voted into the Bottom Two."

Unfortunately for Astro, there's a broad swath of middle American that isn't engaged in social media, but still watches and votes religiously on 'The X Factor.' But stirring up the conspiracy theory will probably gain him thousands more followers anyway.

Another note, Did they not learn from previous Idol shows that the very winner of the show, Fantasia, was once in the bottom three with Jennifer Hudson. They could have walked off in a huff and would be sprinkling nuts on sundaes now if they didnt have the maturity and will to fight it out in a mature manner. What about Daughtry, he was number five and ousted, he worked hard and is famous now. Let's not forget Clay Akin who was kicked off but being the wild card was allowed back in the game, was grateful and was the second runner up, got his record deal and has a career. Mom, you should be teaching your son these valuable lessons instead of holding onto your pride, remember the Bible says, "Pride cometh before a Fall". You are molding your son to be a bitter young man. Ashame because he has such talent.

Concerning Astro, Now that a read this and another article about him complaining about using Sony headphones instead of the brand he wanted ( Sony is a sponsor for the show) and that he is sure the powers that be were punishing him, I think it's time for this talented but arrogant little **** to go home and wallow in pity. He is paving his own way to failure ...with the help of dear old mom. His mom, in another article, told him that he should just leave the show after being in the bottom two to stick it to them ( a paraphrase). He wsa talked out of it by those "horrible people who "punished him" ((sigh)). Now we know where he gets his attitude from, his mother! A mother who should have been teaching him humility, maturity, and good sportsmanship. He could have made it big, really big, but he and his family have held onto their false pride and have paved their own way to failure. What a shame! Go home, you ungrateful people!

Yep,
That should've been his LAST night there. When excepted; this type of attitude spills over to the next phase. With that being said; I find it hard to believe that ANYBODY will want to contract him now, and I believe the only reason he apologized is because somebody made him aware that he was cutting his own throat.

Nobody is going to kiss his ass, who do he think he is? There's ALWAYS somebody somewhere that's better AND..... with the right attitude it takes to be successful!

Jim Phelps is the head of a super-secret government agency ("Impossible Missions") and is often given secret anonymous covert missions to attempt; quite often they are unmasking of criminals or the rescuing of hostages.

His @ss should have never even made it on The X Factor..let ALONE the bottom two! he may have talent for a young man, BUT this is a singing competition, NOT a rap competition...SORRY! even that other contestant..(Chis Rene or what ever his name was) can sing and he's actually a rapper part of the time,

BUT at least the guy can sing a line or two...I'll give him that much! to be honest..this will be the last time that my wife and I will ever watch this show after all the BS that Simon, Paula, and Reid have created by not throwing this little punk off the show last week like they should have! it's not fair to the ones who actually have to sing and REALLY deserve to stay!!!

Like I've mentioned quite a few times, by letting this little smart mouth punk get away with that nonsense last week, it just ok's it with future contestants that it's alright to act like a spoiled little brat and be pushed through with a slap on the wrist...WTF IS THAT CRAP??? then you wonder why kids like that either end up in jail or dead..NO DISCIPLINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
