The X Factor’s series premiere ended with Chris Rene’s audition, because it was a perfect storm of everything the Factor wants to be. Talented guy? Check; he blew the crowd away with his original song. Compelling backstory? Yep, newly sober. Easy to relate to? Sure, he’s a dad trying to do right by his young son. All the pieces are firmly in place — we’ll be surprised if Chris doesn’t continue to grace our screens for a long time.
