    I love this kid! It is a rare exception and deserves to win. He is all heart, no sad story, no fancy dress - he is whom he is - a musical genius.

      In my opinion, this sing wasn’t meant to be sang as a ballad. It basically contradicts the lyrics. Doesn’t really sound good.

          HEY most DISLIKED American idol video of all time. Alejandro is breaking all kinds of records. This is his real personality. The shy shit he keeps putting on is fake. Watch his Instagram. He’s cringe.

                      This was horrible... Truly. Why would they not let him play his own beautiful music, this commercial bullshit just completely tainted his talent. Very disappointed.

                          I loved !
                          I HAVE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE HIM
                          bECAUSE there’s no one in this planet earth like Alejandro !
                          That’s why everyone loves him.
                          I never have seen a humble person like him.
                          He is a Special and a spectacular human being.
                          I don’t know if I cry , I don’t know if I scream 😱 I don’t know what do to when I listen to him.
                          Guys the woman he loves it’s the most lucky girl in the world .
                          I can’t believe how people can be dumb like that!
                          If she don’t want him back after those numerous times he is singing and SINGING FOR HER
                          she don’t deserve him .
                          He is a dream for every woman.
                          God bless you Alejandro! You are loved ! very vey loved by us.
                          you are our Prince Alejandro .

                              Not feeling takes away from the genre his voice is good at.

                                        My least favorite from Alejandro so far on idol. The first time I listened to it on tv I didn’t get it at all. But I just listened to it again and he is so talented that when I see him and hear him do his thing I begin to like music that I wouldn’t normally listen too. I enjoy this performance now and I thought his duet was amazing.

                                          I liked him at first, but with that monotone voice if his his and no guitar, he sucks! Over rated,

                                            I didn’t like the song choice and the production was not clean. I guarantee he didn’t arrange this. There creative director probably help and it didn’t sound like Alejandro’s style.

                                                I like him and I like some Drake songs, but this was a bad song choice and a bad performance.

                                                      He isn’t very good. The most mediocre singers are always over hyped.
