Andrew Garcia – I Heard It Through The Grapevine – Video MP3 American Idol Top 11
Andrew Garcia sings I Heard It Through The Grapevine on the American Idol Top 11
Rickey: Sigh. Miley advised Andrew to put down the guitar. Did it work?
Randy Jackson: It wasn’t good man. It was the wrong song choice.
Ellen DeGeneres: I hope your fans vote for you.
Kara DioGuardi: I feel bad for you. You’re chasing that moment. It’s messed with your head.
Simon Cowell: Maybe we just over-rated that moment on hindsight. The arrangement was horrific. You sucked the soul out of that song.

Got Something to Add?
Nothing this embarrassing would have ever come out of Alex Lambert, Katelyn Epperly, Lilly Scott, or Lacey Brown. Stop sending the talent home, America, sheesh.
1. Bad song choice. What was he thinkin?
2. Key was too low. Didn't fit part of his voice that is soulful.
3. Almost sounded like he was rapping instead of singing. Did he do this on purpose to make the song different from the original and sounding more current? Either way it's a fail.
I do hope he survives coa he and crystal are the only 2 that I care about.
Vote for Andrew Garcia. He is a real good, talented artist. And I don't judge him by this show called American Idol.
That was really bad. His voice was plain the whole time and it had no soul or excitement at all, for me anyway. I gotta say <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syPc5VY3HAA" rel="nofollow">Kevin Covais</a> did a MUCH better job.
I'm a HUGE Andrew Garcia fan, but seriously......what.....the......hell?!?! Heard it through the Grapevine?....no guitar?.....dude, not your style at all.
Horrible! Sounded like it wasn't in the right key at all for him. I assumed he had a powerful voice and that he was just holding back all along but I guess I was wrong. Looks like he's given up though, the way he acted during the judges comments makes it seem like he was being sarcastic and has had enough.
that was sooooo weird to listen to... the song isn;t for the song... the arrangement should have made it suit it voice but it made it worse :/
Im still a fan but this was not very good. At least his moves were pretty good. Im sorry to all Tim and Paige fans but they do still deserve to go home before Andrew.
i knew he was going downhill since watching his top 24 performance... he should've gone home instead of alex lambert!
Andrew Garcia without the guitar is like John Mayer or Jason Mraz without their guitars. ANDREW, STOP listening to these people giving you bad advice. Just do you!
You look like a sellout with those whack ass hand movements. That's not you! Just be yourself....with your guitar man!
Not only was his singing bad but I realized how very little star quality he has. Just looks like an average Joe who probably sounds better when he's singing in the shower. His audition take on Paula's "Straight Up" is now a distant memory.
Well, it wasn't the worst song I've ever heard sang on Idol -- at least he had SOME stage presence.
I feel so bad for Andrew -- he's like the tragic contestant. It's almost not fair -- it's like the judges did this to him.
wow there throwing him under the buss , whats the deal with this show? they force them to sing these songs than bad mouth them, they should just ditch the whole dumb theme week and let them sing w/e they want.
I was an Andrew fan--but this was the most watered down version of the song I have ever heard. I am afraid I must agree w/ Simon 100%.
I have watched his youtube videos before Idol and liked him then saw him on idol and thought he could be a star. He's my favorite in the competition and it's really, really tough to watch because week in and week out he's just plain out boring. I don't know that he's that bad, but he just doesn't do anything, he doesn't show his range at all. I thought he'd def be a top 3 candidate but I don't think he makes it past weeks 9 or 8 at this rate.
Wow watching this group is tough, I really think this group is pretty weak. I think Anoop, Matt Giraud, Gokey, Allison, Adam and Kris are all better then basically all of the contestants.
Andrew, what happened to you? You used to did so well at your audition and at Hollywood and now you started to become boring!
judging by his youtube vids...i really have no clue what's going on in his mind...must be the pressure. the only thing that might save him this week were the awful performances by paige and tim...and possibly katie (i thought it was terrible).
Simon knocked it out of the park: "Maybe we just over-rated that moment on hindsight. The arrangement was horrific. You sucked the soul out of that song." Mr. smug Andrew was giving Simon a dirty look.
then..its not a competition anymore...its just preference...by having theme week...it to see whether they hav wide range of capability or not..whether they hav the ability to arrange different kind of song and at least 'try' to make it their own...its what the competition about...too bad American vote just awful they keep the bad and throw away some of the goods...
I agree.Why didnt he do that earlier? He has been boring and bad week after week. I think that would be a good choice for him, not that I care that much, since I thought Alex should have been in the top 12 over Andrew and Tim.
No...the song is bad, and he is worse.
Anyone who thinks "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" is a song to sing in a singing competition is clearly not thinking objectively or has no musical taste. It's a great song on radio, but when you hear it live its just reeks of karaoke. If his voice was any better, at least there would be a silver lining like with Lee tonight...bad song choice, but he sang it well. Andrew chose the wrong song, and sang it badly. If he is as good as you say he is, he wouldn't have sabotaged 5 songs in a row!!!!!!!
