My Twitter followers might have noticed in the past few weeks that I'm a huge fan of Altiyan Childs, The X Factor Australia's resident eccentric rocker. Now, this guy has polarised people from Day 1 when he botched his audition and was allowed to return, but there was just something about him that piqued my interest, and he does have a lot of fans to balance his vocal haters. In fact, Altiyan was in the top 10 trending topics worldwide on Twitter earlier tonight.
Anyway, this is a Bon Jovi blog and Altiyan took on a song that's tough at the best of times and probably a lot tougher when you've been battling tonsillitis all week. Apparently his mentor, Ronan Keating even rang Jon to ask permission to tackle "Livin' on a Prayer", lol. Here is Altiyan's intro package, performance and the judges' comments.
