Simon, Stop Lookin' at My Mom

Simon, Stop Lookin' at My Mom

The Astronomical Kid a.k.a. Astro has gained millions of fans at the tender age of 14.  He made his first television appearance last month as a contestant of the X Factor.  The X Factor is a talent competition that was created by ex Idol judge Simon Cowell.  The grand prize is a cool five million dollars to the winning act.  The show was quite an international success and is proving to be just as popular with the United States audience.

When Brian Bradley walked on the stage he was quickly scrutinized by the panel of judges whose first thoughts may have been regarding his young age and then his talent as a rapper. Astro confused the audience when he seemed to focus an attack on Simon.  His attention grabbing antics drew live and television audiences to the edges of their seats and  eventually on their feet as he performed his original song "Stop Looking  at My mom."

He has the air of an individual older that his 14 years.  He is mature and focused on what he wants to do and he is unwavering in he style that he has.  His stage presence is amazing and he is simply fun to watch.  He has fun on that stage.  I can only imagine that pressure that he may feel as he performs in from of millions every week and most importantly, his mom.

His lively performances made LA Reid's decision to push him into his top 12 easily.  He remains in the competition as the only rap act.  We wish you good luck Astro!  America loves you!
