Cyrus, the 19-year old Filipino-Australian X Factor grand finalist, has just been crowned as the Grand Final winner of X Factor Australia 2015.

He’s young, but he’s known for singing with overflowing emotions and uncanny vocal style.

Cyrus Villanueva’s winning pieces were:

  • “Earned It” by The Weeknd
  • “Stone” – Cyrus Villanueva’s debut single
  • “Jealous” by Labrinth

He sang all those with so much passion. When you see his performances, you’d forget he’s only 19 years old.

Cyrus Villanueva’s vocal style and voice quality are amazing.

It’s no wonder he got that far in the competition and was even able to take home the top prize. - cyrus villanueva winner x factor australia filipino father grand finals winning competition singing chris isaak mentor picture watch video 2015 stone jealous earned it single itunes twitter album sony music win – Another Filipino wins X Factor Autralia, Cyrus Villanueva

When Cyrus Villanueva was announced as the X Factor Australia 2015 big winner, he was emotional and also in tears.

He thanked everyone who was with him in his X Factor journey.

I want to thank God for blessing me with the gift of music that I’ve been so blessed to share with you all.

That simple, but sincere statement is now being praised on social media.

His fans love how humble he is.

This reputation has reached one of the X Factor judges, Guy Sebastian, who said that he has been hearing how nice Cyrus is whether in front of or behind the camera.

On social media, the support of his fans is incredible, too.

Cyrus didn’t forget to thank his fans on Twitter. He tweeted:

I never thought I would have made it this far – through the ups and the downs! THANK YOU!

One of the benefits of winning the X Factor Australia 2015 is a recording contract with Sony Music.

“Stone” is Cyrus Villanueva’s first single.

According to Sydney Morning Herald, “Stone” is available on iTunes now.

After Cyrus Villanueva won the X Factor Australia, Filipinos are now asking everyone to unite and support ‘4th Impact’, the all-Filipina girl group on X Factor UK.

As of this writing, 4th Impact has made it to ‘X Factor UK’ Top 5.

They’re all giving their best in every performance. Like most Filipino artists, they’re humble and great performers, too. — This article was originally written by
