Happy Mother's Day. In honor of this special day, confident, swagger-soaked 'X Factor' alum Astro is interviewed by his lovely mother. Astro has such love for the woman who birthed him that he even wrote his rap 'Stop Looking at Moms' about dudes trying to hit on his hot mama.
Melanie Amaro may have walked off with the top prize of $5 million and the title of 'X Factor' winner, but third runner-up Chris Rene and fan favorite Astro have both signed deals with their mentor L.A. Reid's Epic Records. It proves you needn't be the winner to enjoy the spoils.
From one 'X Factor' finalist to another! Rapper Astro, who was voted off the American version of the show in mid-season, will appear on a reworked version of the song 'Want U Back,' the new single from Cher Lloyd, who was a finalist on (but did not win) the U.K. version of the show.

Don't be feeling sorry for teenage rap dynamo Astro, who was voted off 'X Factor' straightaway last night for having the lowest amount of votes from the viewing audience. The kid has reportedly signed to Jay-Z's Roc-Nation label already.
Bum-out alert! On tonight's elimination episode of 'X Factor,' the bottom three consisted of our faves: Drew, Astro and Marcus Canty. The defiant Astro and a tearful Drew both ended up being sent home.
Wearing a military jacket, adolescent but wise-beyond-his-years rapper and 'X Factor' contestant Brian Bradley aka Astro piped an original rap over Michael Jackson's 1991 hit 'Black or White.' It was essentially a remix of the song and it was freakin' awesome.
