Zamboangueño Makes It To The X FACTOR Australia Season 4


25-year-old proud Zamboangueño, Chris Cayzer, made it to the Top 20 in the latest season of X Factor Australia. Chris is the son of Zamboangueña Kristine Araneta Cayzer and Reggie Hizon Cayzer. He already made a name in the music industry in our own country and now he’s taking another milestone in his career.

I personally didn’t expect much from him in the auditions. But I will tell you honestly that he had blown me away with his performance. Chris sang Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles which I think is so girly. My judgment? HE OWNED THE SONG! He actually made me forget Carlton. His rendition was masculine and fun and light and pleasurable and i-don’t-know-what-to-say-anymore. Oh wait, I gotta watch the video again.

Mel B of Spice Girls gave him a standing ovation and said that there’s something extra special with Chris that she haven’t seen for a long time. However, Idol Guy Sebastian thinks Chris needs to grow a lot then followed by giving him a NO vote. But the good news is, the three other judges gave him a huge YES.

I personally remember when Chris visited Zamboanga several years ago and sang for his fellow Zamboangueños. If I’m not mistaken, he visited us twice already.

I love his version of Lisa Loeb’s You Say.

That’s it Zamboangueños! Hope this blog made you feel more proud today. Gracias.
