Last week in The X Factor USA‘s double elimination Brian “Astro” Bradley, 15, was sent home. Unlike the last time Astro was in the bottom two he caused no drama and just said he was ready to work. As a matter of fact Astro seemed to be indifferent about the news and immediately hugged his fellow contestants and mentor L.A. Reid. There may be another reason Astro was indifferent about his elimination, it is being reported he has been signed to Jay-Z’s Record Label, Roc-Nation.
Mediatakeout.com has the scoop: Jay-Z, thirteen time grammy award winner, former CEO of Def Jam Recordings and founder of Roc-Nation said, ” I first heard about this exciting new talent and decide to watch some of his performances. Jay-Z goes on to say, “Not only was I impressed with his performances, but to see the confidence he sang with, his lyrics and diction were on point.” And there’s more. We’re told that Jigga and ’em are working FEVERISHLY . . . to get Astro onto WILLOW SMITH’S new track.
Kudos for Astro he is very talented and is sure to have a bright future. L.A. Reid called the eliminated Astro a star with endless talents. What do you think about Astro’s elimination from X Factor, did he go too soon? Do you think he will do better signing with Roc-Nation then winning The X Factor USA? Sound out in the comments below!
