    He's got a sort of Adam Levine vibe going.



  2. 2

    sorry, but that was just so lame.



  3. 3

    Haven't watched Idol since Kara joined, but the few clips I see I can tell she's really annoying. Am I right?



  4. 4

    Loved this! I could def. hear this on the radio!



  5. 5

    THAT was not good.



  6. 6

    he's gonna win the whole thing…. i'm calling it now.

    very good :)



  11. 11

    that was really good



  12. 12

    He's winning it. And if he doesn't, I'm never watching the show again. Because it will be stupid. And I sound like a 5 year old, but I really don't care :)



  13. 13

    he used to make videos on youtube and has a lot of the other youtube people supporting him.



  14. 14

    Ewww they allow guitars on Idol? OMG that is like SO totally GROSS!



  15. 15

    He gave me chills . He's voice is AMAZING. I hope he makes it really far in the competition. Viva los Latinos!!!



  16. 16

    He's amazing. I LOVE him and he's actually 100% Filipino! Pinoy Pride!



  17. 17

    This is very very good! It's so amazing I loved this. It's like my favorite interpretation ever.



  18. 18

    Re: Nelly_In_SJ – To be honest she has a lot of good things to say. She gives good feedback. She may do annoying things sometimes but I respect her, and all the judges.



  21. 21

    He was great!



  22. 22

    its such an in thing to do acoustic covers of well known pop songs, it was not all that great. if u listened to anything other than ga ga and eurotrash bullshit you would know this has been a trend for a few years know



  23. 23

    Re: kdizzy10 – lol I'm sorry but he actually has absolutely NO Filipino in him. He's 100% Mexican. Trust me I'm one of his closest friends. But ya his girl is Filipino and he pretty much has all Filipino friends but he is 0% himself.



  24. 24

    Isn't he known on Youtube? Cool that he's on idol.



  25. 25

    love it. Get it on itunes now so I can buy it.



  26. 26

    i love this kid; not really into Idol anymore but I'm SOO voting for him.



  27. 27

    yep, he was my fav. last night! hope he makes it to the top 12!



  28. 28

    I loved it! he showed idol what they lost when they let paula go- PAULA ROCKSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS



  29. 29

    He is just amazing! Sounds a little like John Legend



  30. 30

    Re: Nelly_In_SJ – she is way beyond annoying



  31. 31

    I don't like almost anything that comes out of American Idol but he was wonderful. Beautiful voice, very very talented.



  32. 32

    omgosh yayyy andrew! i love my friend!!!! he's going to make it far! =)



  33. 33

    Re: Nelly_In_SJ
    I don't think she's that bad



  34. 34

    This was sweeet! Love to see him do a duet with Cas Haley.



  35. 35

    shut the fuck up kiara



  36. 36

    that was pretty damn good…better than Paula's for sure LOL



  37. 37

    I personally loved it!



  38. 38

    Amazingly generic. You see where all the ironic covers got Kris Allen. Single sales are trendy. Album sales build artists.



  39. 39

    Incredible talent.



  40. 40

    OH yea this was good!!!

    This season is all contestants with kids…. shouldn't they stay home and raise their kids….. seems every girl and guy has a baby or two.



  42. 42

    I think Andrews rendition of Straight Up was AMAZING. And anyone who say's otherwise, obviously has no sense of what REAL singing is. He has a gift and I wouldn't be suprised if he won the whole thing. There are a few others who are very good to, even if he doesn't win he is DEFINITELY going to get signed somewhere. I love him! Go Andrew!



  43. 43

    Wow, I loved it. Love the song and he did a great rendition.



  44. 44

    andrew garciaa



  45. 45

    This was amazing!!! hope he wins!



  46. 46

    I LOVED THAT! SOOOO GOOD! AMAZING!



  47. 47

    KDIZZY10 - hes actually 100% mexican not filipino but alot of the singers hes associated with on youtube are filipino.



  48. 48

    Andrew is definitely one to watch for!

    And I think Kara is great! I am enjoying this season soooooo much more without all of Paula's childish antics.



  49. 49

    wow impressive



  50. 50


  51. 51

    Haven't watch AI since Paula left. Its just not the same anymore. And Kara is so FAKE and USELESS!



  52. 52

    Suppsssss talented.



  53. 53

    hes got my vote! i watched him on the show and i was blown away!



  54. 54

    I enjoyed that.



  55. 55

    I dont like idol AT ALL! but i love him!!! hope he makes it all the way. I want hear him on my radio!



  56. 56
