AUSTRALIA. Pinoy talents continue their winning streaks in international singing competitions with another talented Filipino singer earning a spot in X Factor Australia 2015. 

Cyrus Villanueva, a Filipino-Australian singer, earned a spot in the Top 12 of X Factor Australia's 7th Season, Men Under 25 Category. 

On Monday this week, the 19-year old singer delivered a heartbreaking performance of the song 'Dancing On My Own' which secured him one of the chairs in the show's 5-seat challenge.

During the Home Visits round on Wednesday, September 23, Villanueva continued to impress his coach Chris Isaak and two other guest judges - Simon Cowell and Rita Ora, no less. Cyrus performed Bob Marley's 'Is this Love' in front of the three mentors who later chose him to be one of the Top 3 performers to go through the live shows.

Several Filipino acts have made waves in Australia's X Factor. Last year, Filipina singer Marlisa Punzalan who won the grand title under Ronan Keating's mentorship was just one of the hopefuls among six Filipino acts including Erin Miranda, Jal Joshua, Mary Ann Van Der Horst, Justin Vasquez and the girl band - Trill.
