We listed down Cyrus Villanueva’s Top 10 performances on “The X Factor Australia” 2015 to give you an idea on why he won the title earlier today.

Cyrus V

It’s quite rare for an “X Factor,” “Idol” or “The Voice” contestant who can make a better rendition of a song compared to the original artist who’ve sung it. Cyrus did that several times this season and some of the covers he performed sounded like it was a new song. This is because he put his own musical style to it and he himself made the arrangements.

The Fil-Aussie crooner, by the way, was the only contestant this year who did not hit bottom 2.

Here are Cyrus’ Top 10 Performances:

1. “Wicked Game” (Chris Isaak Cover, Live Show 2) – Cyrus got a full standing ovation from the panel and extended applause from the audience. His cover peaked at no. 4 of iTunes Australia’s Top 100 songs beating Justin Bieber.

Here’s the original:

2. “Dancing On My Own” (Robyn Cover, Six Chair Challenge) – This is the first time Cyrus made a deep connection to his mentor Chris Isaak. James Blunt, Danii Minogue and Guy Sebastian made a standing ovation while Isaak got teary-eyed.

Here’s the original:

3. “Rumour Has It” (Adele Cover, Live Show 5) – After getting negative feedbacks on week 4 for poor song choice, Cyrus made a massive comeback with an Adele cover.

4. “Earned It” (The Weeknd Cover, Grand Final) – This is Cyrus’ audition song and the most viewed performance this year on The X Factor Australia’s YouTube channel. He got a full standing ovation for this one just like in the auditions.

5. “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” (Bob Dylan Cover, Live Show 6) – Needless to say, Cyrus got another full standing ovation for this one.

6. “Stone” (Winner’s Single, Grand Finals) – Cyrus totally connected with the audience despite them hearing this song for the first time.

7. “Hold Back The River” (James Bay Cover, Live Show 3) – Cyrus’ take on the song was way better than the original!

Here’s the original:

8. “Boyfriend” (Justin Bieber Cover, Live Show 1) – Cyrus’ take on “Boyfriend” makes it sound like a completely different song.

9. “Is This Love” (Bob Marley Cover, Home Visits) – Cyrus’ arrangement of the song is sick! I hate the original, i love his version. And Rita Ora was smitten by his charm.

10. “Don’t” (Ed Sheeran Cover, Live Show 8) – This is the first time Cyrus tried to rap and he killed it.
