    Week to week, I never knew what he was going to do. All I do know is that he never bored me and always amazed me.

      OMG - you are so talented. Someone like you only comes along once in a loooooong time. Your music relaxes me and I get lost in it. Never change. <3

            Professional keyboard artist/producer Cori Jacobs gives him high praise as he breaks down the chord arrangements by Alejandro. Search this on YouTube to check it out "cori jacobs on alejandro aranda"

              alejandro.he didn’t win, Perry’s “karaoke” comment inadvertently brought up a possible reason he didn’t bring home the victory.

                            Listening to this now, I believe he has made the song more singable. He added a great melody to it. 😲

                                I feel like Passionfruit would have been a better fit for him and he would have done that cover so much better than one dance!

                                    Very repetitious and pitchy. This is not his forte. Sad to see them trying to make him into something he’s not. What he needs is a budget and a good producer and just let him create his own thing.

                                      Aranda at 2:39... disappointed for being called a dj while having performed a live-act with keys, drumpad, vocals and effects
                                      Surprisingly, Katy fixing it at 3:24 :)

                                                  Good thing he has a supportive fan-base, otherwise this performance alone could've easily sent him home.

                                                      Alejandro channels his inner marshmello with this one

                                                        Not to sure about his vocals on this a little wobbly, which I didn't think I'd say as his vocals are always stunning- maybe a grower?

                                                          So much talent! Alex Aiono does this song justice as well.

                                                            Love Alejandro, but damn this is my favorite performance of his yet. Nothing but soul. Don’t understand the hate for this performance, literally can’t listen to the original version of this song anymore because this is so much better.

                                                              Did't like this one. Too much work on his voice. The acoustic songs make him stand out of the rest.
