From Brownsville comes 15-year-old Brian Bradley or Astro, a rapper who impressed the judges of The X Factor with his original composition “Stop Looking At My Momz”. Even though he had a little problem with Simon Cowell, he ended up impressing L.A. Reid at the Judges’ Homes tryouts and became one of the Top 17 contestants to participate in the show.

FOX’s The X Factor is a reality competition looking for the next great entertainer. From those who have auditioned, judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and L.A. Reid handpick several contestants who might have just what they’re looking for. After a rigorous process, only one will end up with a $4 million recording contract with Epic Records, plus $1 million to spend on their own. The winner will also be starring in their own Pepsi commercial.
