Gaining huge popularity, he released an album of covers titled For Once in My Life. He was just 12, when his mother who had been diagnosed with an ongoing mental illness finally opted to put the young Babou in foster care with foster parents residing in Aarhus, Denmark. In 2011, at age 16, he took part in season 4 of the Danish version of the competition The X Factor broadcast on Danish television channel DR1, from 1 January to 25 March 2011 auditioning as a contestant from Aarhus with the song "Cry Me Out" from Pixie Lott. He was put through with the three judges, Cutfather, Pernille Rosendahl and Thomas Blachman. Reaching the Final 9 stage, he was mentored by Cutfather in the "Under 25" category. Despite heavy speculation he would win the title, he finished third overall, with 26,23% of the popular vote in the Final 3 stage, to winner Sarah Skaalum Jørgensen (or just the mononym Sarah) and runner-up Annelouise. After staying away a couple of years, Babou came back with a single "Supernova" that has charted on Tracklisten, the official Danish Singles Chart entering the chart at number 8 in its first week of release. "Supernova" had been written as a promotional theme song for the Danish reality television series Paradise Hotel in its tenth season in 2014.
