For Michael Jackson week on “The X Factor,” young Drew Ryniewicz took on “Billie Jean,” which is certainly a bold choice as it’s one of MJ’s most well-known songs. But she put her Drew spin on it and we loved it.

The judges were complimentary, even prickly L.A. Reid. He says of the performance that even though he’s in a naughty mood, he actually really enjoyed it and she made it her own. Nicole loved how she sounded, but was not in love with her sitting in the chair the whole time with no spectacle. We have to disagree with that, we thought that added to the haunting nature of the piece.

What did you think, “X Factor” fans? Was it one of your favorites?
