15-Year Old Astro Breaks Down, Almost Eliminated From X-Factor "I Don't Want To Perform For People That Don't Want Me Here" [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

Brian Bradley aka The Astronomical Kid, showed that he's still got some growing up to do after melting down on X-Factor yesterday.

 

The 15-year old Brooklyn MC found himself in the bottom two of the competition this week along with 42-year old Stacy Francis. The two were asked to sing/rap so the judges could vote for who they wanted to remain in the competition, but Astro's heart wasn't in it.

 

"On the real, I really don't wanna perform. I really don't think it's necessary," he said before turning to L.A. Reid. "But I'mma leave it up to you. You're my mentor. Do you think I should perform?"

 

Reid encouraged him to perform, telling him that he had come a long way in the competition.

 

After performing Never Can Say Goodbye by The Jackson 5, it was time for Astro to face the judges panel of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Reid and Nicole Scherzinger.

 

"Astro I thought you came out and you acted a little bit like a quitter and it upset me," Reid told him. "Because you're too talented and you've come too far than to come out and give a lackluster performance after all the great performances you've given. Is that fair?"

 

Nicole and Paula were not as harsh, but Cowell didn't hold back.

 

"I don't like your attitude right now. So, just do me a favor and stop folding your arms, look at me and think about your mom watching this show," Cowell said. "Because you are showing disrespect to your mom, you're showing disrespect to the audience at home, and I don't like people with this attitude."

 

By now the audience had started to turn against him, but Astro was still defiant.

 

"No disrespect to you or this show, but I just feel like if you're going to put me in the bottom two, I don't want to perform for people who don't want me here, you know what I'm saying? That's it," Astro said while trying to fight back tears.

 

After a vote of 3-1, with Scherzinger voting in favor of Stacy, the judges decided to keep Astro although Cowell said he really didn't want to.

 

Check out Astro's performance and subsequent meltdown below.

Easy to judge the kid from your armchair watchin the screen with a beer. The pressure perfoming in front of all those in the crowd, & millions worldwide must be insane. And this is a 15 year old kid who is an mc from Brooklyn, the first rapper on one of these shows. He's done some great songs though! & for 15, I think hes very mature/polite. This is his first '15 year old' mistake on tv. His dreams were crashing down around him, & what do most peeps do when trying hard not to cry? They frown, get angry, stern. He's done well to get this far, & he's probably got a contract waiting for him..

@ eric jerk- you're right there are 15 year olds doing life in prison and they're not being hardcore beast. They're either in protective custody or they too are, crying at night but for another reason. It's not realistic for folks to be mad at this young boy for having feelings and not being able to completely control them. If he was 25, 35, or 45, I could certainly understand where folks are coming from by dissing him. But looking at this little boy who's only 15 and expecting him to be a full grown man and handle himself accordingly is ridiculous....

You guys really think the FOX newtowrk is gonna give this black kid from Brooklyn a 5 million Dollar contract?
He better get Pusha T to start writing his flows

Why are you fools on his nuts so hard? This lil shrimp doesn't write his own lyrics, barely knows how to speak English (yah yah ayh Briklyn Wut up yo yo yo check it). And ANYONE in the world can get a hip hop contract.

Y'all need to give this lil bruv a chance, shiit, we all know the kinda dumb shiit we did when we were little, so stfu, he is only 15, this is the time he can make mistakes and learn from it. Astro man, keep enhancing your talent, and try not to talk too much. the more you speak the more chances of you messing up.
