Singing in tenth place on tonight’s episode of The X Factor is Chris Rene, performing his own version of Gangsta’s Paradise by Coolio from the soundtrack to Dangerous Minds.
Chris sounded like he was really struggling with this song. I’m not sure that this was the best song choice for him tonight.
Nicole Scherzinger said that he channeled the song and the lyrics were good. Paula Abdul called him honest and amazing and said that the lyrics were real.
Simon Cowell said welcome back to the real Chris. He said that he is a potential real star.
L.A. Reid said he’s proud of him and that he did a really great job.
