Filipino-Australian Cyrus Villanueva made it to the top 5 of X Factor Australia after he impressed the judges with his rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Knocking on Heaven’s Door.”

On its November 3 episode, Villanueva got a standing ovation from the judges and the audience with his “amazing” performance.


“Cyrus, the question is not what can you sing but what can’t you sing. I think I have caught the Cyrus virus!” judge James Blunt said, praising Villanueva for his rendition of the song.


Dannii Minogue said the Fil-Aussie singer was “nailing it week after week.”

“Sometimes, this show just captures people in their prime and all the stars align,” Minogue said.

Earlier, Villanueva wowed the judges and the audience with his performance of Adele’s “Rumor Has It.”

His X Factor journey started after he impressed everyone during his audition, performing The Weeknd’s “Earned It.”
