Brian Bradley from "The X Factor" finished in seventh place overall in the FOX reality singing competition series. He is a 15-year-old student from Brooklyn, New York. He says he has an insane love of music.

When asked at his audition in Newark, New Jersey, why he didn't have a record deal yet, he cracked "politics." When Simon Cowell then told L.A. Reid, "He is a mini-you," Bradley interrupted, saying, "Yo, yo, yo, Simon! I see you, man ... What is your problem, son? I swear to my life you're

lucky we aren't in the streets, because if we were in the streets, this is what I'd say to you," launching into an original rap song called "Stop Looking at My Mom!" Seeing that it was all clearly an act to intro his song, Cowell smiled and told him he was "arrogant, obnoxious, argumentative ... but you are one of the most talented young people I've heard in a long, long time ... I think you are fantastic!"

All four judges voted yes to send Brian Bradley through to boot camp. He survived the week and is competing in the boys category under the mentorship of judge L.A. Reid.

After making it through the week at the judges homes and into the top 17, he said "So far "The X Factor" experience has been amazing and pretty fun. It definitely makes me feel like a star. Coming here and being the only MC in this competition, I believe in myself and that is going to bring me through."

Astro secured his position as a prominent mainstay on the show and kept viewers on the edge of their seats week after week with his original, prolific lyrics and high energy performances. As the only contestant to consistently write new material each week — which has never been attempted before — Astro took Grammy-nominated Eminem's "Lose Yourself" (a track that had previously never been covered) and made it his own. 

Honing his craft since the age of 10, Astro first burst onto the scene a few years back with his original composition, "Stop Looking at My Mom," which became an instant viral sensation.

In January 2012, Epic Records signed him to a recording deal. Astro says, "I'm excited to continue my journey with L.A. Reid and his staff at the new Epic Records. The first time L.A. saw me he said I'd be a star, and I can't wait to get to work and prove him right. 2011 was Dope, but 2012 is gonna be Epic!"
