Chris Rene rocks ‘Young Homie’ on ‘The X Factor’ — again

Is he the favorite?

How many times can a single contestant perform the same song on a show and expect good results? This is apparently a question that Chris Rene is looking to answer following his performance Wednesday night on “The X Factor.”

During the tail end of the show, Rene (like Josh Krajcik and Melanie Amaro) performed his own audition song — but in his case, it was a track in “Young Homie” that he had also used during a live show earlier this season.

Even with this being the case, no one in the audience seemed to mind — and since we do think the song is actually better than most we have heard on the competition this season so far, we really don’t mind from a superficial perspective. With that being said, though, should a contestant really be allowed to rely so much on an individual track?

At the end of the day, we do expect that this performance will really end up helping Chris more than hurting. After all, he has shined the brightest this season when performing his own music.

Do you think that Chris gave the best performance on the show Wednesday night?
