Astro - Black Or White [Live on X-Factor]

For anyone out there that has not been checking up on this season of The X-Factor USA, this young kid from Brooklyn, NY has been killing it every week. Even though he's the only rapper I've ever seen on a music competition such as this, he's been able to wow the judges with every performance he has done so far. What's even crazier is that he has written an original song each week so far (unlike other artists who have been performing covers) and he's only 15-years-old! Whether or not he is able to win the entire competition may be a different story, but after all is said and done, this young MC will have a bright future ahead of him.

This video is from last night's performance of The X-Factor in which the theme of the week was a Michael Jackson tribute. Astro was able to take "Black Or White", one of the best songs in the history of pop, and turn it into a more modern, yet still powerful song for a newer generation. Enjoy, and keep your eye out for this kid as the competition continues.
