Sa Rated K, ayon kay half-Pinoy half-Australian “X Factor Australia” 2015 winner Cyrus Villanueva hindi siya nag-expect na mananalo siya sa naturang kompetisyon. “At the very beginning, I wasn't even thinking about the following day, let alone six months down the track so it was a huge journey.”
Six years old pa lang diumano si Cyrus ay nakitaan na ito ng talent sa pagkanta at namana niya ito sa kanyang tatay na Pinoy. Taga New South Wales, Australia si Cyrus.
Marami na ring Pinoy fans si Cyrus at lubos ang pasasalamat niya sa kanila. “I just want to thank them for being there since day one. It’s been amazing that they backed me from the very beginning.”
Nang tanungin naman kung ano sa tingin niya ang kanyang “x factor,” sagot ni Cyrus ay, “[Just] be myself. I never tried to take the competition too seriously.. I treated it like a new experience and a learning process rather than a competition.”
