    This kid is a punk! Any talent he has is overshadowed by his obnoxious personality. I hate when teenagers act all "street". Give me a break poser.



  2. 2

    This kid is phenomenal. I can't wait to see him in concert with my daughter in a few years. She'll be at least 15 by then.

    I'LL BE SHOCKED IF THIS THUG MAKES IT..WHERE'S THE TALENT? RAP CRAP…AND MOST HIP HOP IS NOISE SOME ARE OK..BUT THERE'S NO REAL VOCAL TALENT USUALLY.

    Re: Cha_Cha_the famous – I think his reaction was pure, scripted television. I thought his execution was flawless. To expect any form of true originality in Hollywood anymore would be pretty silly.

    Hate him. He deserves many beat downs.

    He has a ton of personality and stage presence. To perform for 20,000 people at 14 years old is amazing and he didn't seem nervous or uncertain like a lot of younger performers. It was nice to see him drop the persona when L.A. Reid was talking to him, it made him a lot more likeable.

    I've never understood why yelling into a mic is considered "talent". This kid's faux swagger and attitude are beyond irritating. Looks like we have another Kanye-esque egomaniac here. Too bad they put him through - this boy isn't talented - he's just a cocky kid who thinks he's Jay Z.

    I hope they can teach him some humility….. Too arrogant!!!



  10. 10

    steupps anyone who says hes arrogant are retarded. he was acting!!!



  11. 11

    This was ridiculously……BAD. Geesh



  12. 12

    I have a feeling that if he makes it, he'll turn out to be an egotistical asshole like Kanye West. Nonetheless, he has phenomenal ability and capability to succeed in his genre of music.



  13. 13

    Yuck……obnoxious will not get you far….no matter what, unfortunately, once you are
    established, you can be as obnoxious as you want (ie. Kanye West) . Just starting out……..hmmmmmm not so much.



  14. 14

    I thought he was soooo cute!!!! Good to see someone with this much confidence. I hope he never loses it!!! Keep going kid!!!!



  15. 15

    I didn't really see that much attitude from him. It was part of his act as a lead-in to his song. Besides, the kid is from Brooklyn. New York teenagers are all like that.



  16. 16

    someone should slap him. Give him 5 years and he will be forgotten. better than Jay z? my ass.



  17. 17

    I dont think he was arrogant just for having his own scripted introduction, and in my opinion it was actually very good he did that cause it means he does take seriously what he does, he also seemed to enjoy being there which is a plus and I liked what he said about the feeling of accomplishment and achievement. That feeling is wonderful, because it means that all the hard work you put into something it was well worthy. I dont enjoy much hip hop, it would be rare for me to hear a whole hip hop /rap song at all but I say the kid deserves the chance, overall cause he is a kid and he now has the opportunity to be "polished".



  18. 18

    WOW! That was pretty good…the kid knew how to grab you attention.



  19. 19

    Li'l THUG. Is this what "art" has been reduced to????? How in the fvck is that "unique"? That was entertainment, not music. It's amusing for the first 5 minutes, especially because the kid is cute, but after that it's just irritating as HELL. Keep glorifying thug-like behavior. Talk about stereotyping black people. A double slap to Dr. King's very face.



  20. 20

    I liked how he started it! He's not that arrogant, that's the act, the intro… I thought it was brilliant!



  21. 21

    This kid has got some major talent, just wish the "attack-intro" in the beginning would have seemed more natural, because it really did come from nowhere. He has the tendency to get arrogant, but when you look at his behaviour after the "act" was over, he was humbled by their compliments. I think it's more of a stage persona, than a true narcissistic personality alá Kanye West.

    Re: madamking – I know. I got that, too. He used that Simon banter to go straight into his song as if he was telling Simon not to look at his mom. I don't think Simon got that at first but the other judges did.



  24. 24

    Re: Everything popular is wrong. – He's only 14. He will get it right with practice and polish.

    To smiley face:
    Tell me where you got your license to decide whether or not something is music? How is this a slap in King Jr.'s face? Rap and hip hop is a part of the African-American history and culture, and like with everything else, it takes talent and/or practice to be be good at it. To dismiss it as something obscene, "ghetto" and stereotypical just because of its history, is more of a slap in King Jr.'s face, than this talented kid's rap performance.



  27. 27

    I hope Reid works with this kid after the show. i wouldnt mind seeing/hearing him. hes got a great talent…alot better then half those rappers out now.



  28. 28

    i dont understand all thehate on this kid! he's different! he's a young rapper who didn't curse or talk about drugs or anything. i think he's gonna be great!

    I didn't see any arrogance, lol, but I did see him take a risk. I saw him fake calling out Simon to grab everyone's attention to set up his performance. It was theatre. It worked.
