Curtis Finch Jr – Superstar – American Idol 12 Top 40 – Sudden Death
Watch the video and listen to the MP3 here:
The affected singing of Curtis Finch Jr. is now the standard for all black male singers on American Idol. It started with Jacob Lusk then Joshua Ledet.
I don’t know how I feel about this. It was fun for a while but then now I’m longing for my R&B dudes. I know they are out there, not just on Idol.

Got Something to Add?
Awful. Sam Cooke, who took the fake out of gospel singing before crossing over, is rolling over in his grave. All the runs just hide that he can't hit the notes and hold them. No one could sing along with him. He destroys melody.
I was in CHURCH watching him. Nothing wrong with that. But, when he started singing I was like, gospel time! :) Praise the Lord, indeed, he's got a beautiful voice, but I'd rather listen to JDA, or Charlie. And I don't think Jolly knows who he wants to be, he sings all over the map so he comes off as undefined.
I agree with your comments Rickey. When are we going to get the return of the modern, commercially-viable male. Like Curtis, and liked the BMD's before him, but still.
