Got Something to Add?
Its about time thank goodness hes out! He even cover up the gang graffiti tonight a little late. Judges use the save way to early they missed used it at the wrong time like always they need it this week to save Katie.
I think he would have been better off being sent home earlier; that way, he wouldn't be leaving the show with everyone in doubt and having studios forget about signing a contract with him. If he were sent off earlier, signers would have rushed to him. Now, I'm not so sure.
That was hard to listen to; he sucked the life out of that song by slowing down the tempo. The only thing I liked about his performance was the retro mike (crutch).
I don't know what is wrong with him but it seems like he and Tim switch place. Tim was bad at first then stepped up his game and Andrew just gets worst every week!!
It was like some guy at open mic night at a deserted bar. Bizarre thing to do to that song. He's one trick and that trick isn't all that interesting. I do hope he's gone tonight.
This guy has got to be one of the worst, if not the worst, finalists in American Idol history. Hopefully this will be his swan song and we will never have to look at or hear his terrible versions of songs again.
Whoever said that was great needs a frickin brain or ear transplant. I mean seriously be fair. I've heard regular ppl in karaoke sing better. He's a disgrace and he ruined someone elses dream to be there. There were SO many ppl from the auditins that deserve to be in his spot. His lack of talent is painful to watch. Worst contestant ever on ai! They might as let adam do all his songs. He's better than all them combined.
That was great.
The judges are on point about 50% of the time.*
This was not one of those times.
* (i.e. flip a coin)
I still think he's talented but he's so out of his league ever since the live shows began. His song choices are poor. (What happened to him? 'Sunday Morning' and 'Straight Up' were great choices)
Unlike Katie, who have found her "killer instinct" when it comes to picking songs and not listening to whatever Kara says, Andrew still is over thinking. And why does Andrew always pick novelty-ish songs during beatles and elvis week when he could've should've showed depth by singing 'maybe i'm amazed' etc...
sigh andrew. it's goodbye for certain.
He has been walking the path of mediocrity (that was walked by Lil Rounds last season) and looks like he wont be going away from it...
Too much hype from the start and failing to step it up in the finals :(
and this performance didn't do anything good for him >.>
He was my favourite going into the top 12. It was decent but not great. I think I'm done thinking he'll turn in a good performance. :( such a waste.
That was okay. Anyways, I'm happy that Andrew is already in the top 10, which means he will be on tour around the US. I look forward to buying his first album. I will support his music career not only because he is a talented musician but also because he is a good person. He deserves to succeed!
:( Oh my I'm a fan of Andrew since the start, but man this song was soooo not good. I really taught that you can pull it through after the solid performance from the RnB week. I'm a fan of yours since you where kicking on youtube. Oh well Andrew, it's time to go back and be one with Ovid(Andrew's band) again.
But the real question now is that:
WHO'S JOINING ANDREW GO HOME TOMORROW?
wow, I really really liked it, I actually thought this is the best he's done so far, but surprised that so many people didn't. He changed tempo and made it his own. WTF people?
You guys are a bunch of sheep. Stop bleating after the judges. That was good. He's got a good vibe going on with that grunting sound, and he exploited that today.
ohhh man, I have always liked Andrew, supported him the whole season but I don't see any possible way he makes it past tonight.
It's a shame he has some awesome vibrato's and can be pretty awesome up there, he just has the wrong arrangements and song choices.
Who am I gonna root for to finish out this year, Lee?
This was sooooo bad!!!
And lazy this song had the potential to be soo movingg and instead it was a snoozfest
LOL didn't he learn after he failed at doing "I Heard It Through the Grapevine"?? It was terrible and it looks like he is just a one trick pony. Acoustic guitar or bust. Even Adam Lambert knew it and he was just trying to get Andrew to open up and show some more but it just doesn't look like he can do it.
Wow, that was really bad. I feel bad for Andrew after that performance... But yeah, his time will probably be up tomorrow.
andrew, oh andrew...what the hell were you thinking?
this was right up (or down) there with 'heard it through the grapevine'
you are exponentially greater when you have your guitar than without it...elvis was the man with his...why not use it?
As a big Andrew fan I think the Lil Rounds comparison is pin point. She was picked as an early favorite, had some serious talent and fell into mediocre performances that were boring. When you're suppose to be that good you can't just be there you have to wow people and as a big Andrew fan I'd be the first to tell you he has failed to do so.
Truth be told I do think he has more talent then some of these people left, specifically Tim, but he had his chance and if he had some good performances could have been an easy favorite to win it all.
There are certain way he finishes off lines with vibratos that could send chills down your spine but I guess that can't save him from these boring performances. His "Forever" was my favorite performance of any contestant all year. An example of his awesome vibrato is in that, on the part where it goes I'm driving you can take the front seat, just need you to.....then he says girl 3 times and the way he finishes the 3rd girl off is what really grabbed me.
Anyway I'm done ranting since this will likely be the last week I could do so for Andrew, I'm hoping he gets through but if he doesn't I hope he makes an album, ill be sure to take a listen.
bunch of sheep? i was cringing after 15 seconds. if he had put that performance on the street or subway i would maybe give him a penny.
Maybe to you, but sure as hell not to me. I think he's sucked each and every week, it's way past time for him to go. Have him and Lambarf together was like a double pukefest.
D: Noooooo! Why? I was just waiting for him to pull up his votes with a great acoustic hit. But! But! That was like a nail in his coffin. and...I'm saying that as his biggest fan. D:
