‘The X Factor’s’ Astro Talks Scandal, Admits He’s Worried About Going Home

All eyes were on Astro this Tuesday, as he returned to the "X Factor" stage after he threw a tantrum, almost got sent home, and then experienced a massive backlash last week. One would imagine that he was feeling the pressure, but he certainly didn't let viewers see him sweat during his stellar top nine night performance of Jay-Z's "Show Me What You Got." And backstage after the show, he claimed he hadn't let last week's scandal affect him at all.

"I don't focus on the past. I'm one of the guys that focus on the future. I didn't feel any pressure from last week....I just want people to forget the past. I apologized, I made a mistake...Tonight I had fun, and that's all that matters," he said.

But the 15-year-old MC did admit he was concerned that America might not forgive him for his bad behavior. "Honestly, I don't know. I don't think 'America' is going to forgive me, but I think Team Astro and the Astronauts will....I'm definitely worried, but it is what it is. If I end up in the bottom two and get sent home, I'll handle it better than I did before."

Do YOU think Astro is going home this week? If he does, we will see just how well he handles it on Wednesday night.
