Astro Pulls Ahead of the Competition on ‘X Factor’ With ‘Every Breath You Take’ Rendition

Paula Abdul is ticked off. She’s probably ticked off that rap-phenom Astro barely sang a rock song tonight on ‘X Factor‘ and still has more talent in his little finger than all of her groups combined (which is a lot of people when you include that monstrosity, Intensity).

It was Rock Week on ‘X Factor’ and Brian ‘Astro’ Bradley really showed what he was made of in his performance of ‘Every Breath You Take’ originally by Sting, performed in the key of Diddy. His rhymes are air tight, his stage presence is second to none, but most importantly, he’s got swag. Astro is a star, plain and simple.

We love that he paid homage to late rappers, not only on the set behind him, but in his lines too. As he  borrowed the melody of one of Notorious B.I.G.‘s most famous lines from his smash ‘Juicy’ — “Remember Rappin’ Duke, duh-ha, duh-ha/You never thought that hip hop would take it this far“– we could only think he was making Big Poppa proud.

So in the end, Paula Abdul asked the question everyone was thinking, “Can’t you just suck for once?” Sorry Paula, but it looks like Astro’s going back to Brooklyn $5 million richer!
