Voting Number: 1-855-4-IDOL-04
He said that he grew up with Elton John and he loved his music. But he’s not seen the movie… “27 Dresses”.
Ben plays the piano on this one and cleans up good in his green jacket. I like Ben! His facial expressions were precious. He’s like your single uncle who always sings during family parties. He kinda lost me on the falsetto though.
My Rating: 3 / 5 stars
