Luke, choose a better song that's gonna let you belt it out. That song did nothing for your voice. :(
I was SOOOOOOOO hoping this guy would knock it out of the park. He didn't. He looks like he should be on a soap opera, he's freakin HOT but his performance really lacked.
If he doesn't go home tomorrow night, he'd better step it up a notch. He's nice eye candy tho. lol
Luke , here's the deal hope u read this , dont let american idol arrange the songs for u, that song was a classic , from the movie Midnight Cowboy starring Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voigt. Some songs simply don't need that kind of arrangement.Ur voice was a perfect fit for that song without the horrible AI arranging. Hoping u make it thru to another luke , u deserve it , no matter how badly Ai tried to make u look.
Come out next week , and sing a song that feels right , that doesnt feel manufactured to fit in their pidgeon hole on how u should sound. Shame on AI and the awful Arrangers on this season .. everything was over the top.
bless ya luke , holding good thoughts for u .
OK I'm just going to go to each page and type, "see Izzy's comments." That should do it. Orlando Bloom!
For a guy who sings with an acappella group, his voice wasn't very strong.
Ok..his performance in not convincing at all. And yes its forgettable. The song was boring and his voice didnt do nothing to make the song look more interesting. But, I still believe he will do better. I mean from the audition he surely can do better
YES! Matthew Metzger. Great memory, Grumpy Bear. I see our minds are on the same wavelength this morning. ;}
Izzy, that was Matthew Metzger, and I was thinking the same thing! :) He really reminded me of him! I loved Matthew, and was disappointed when he didn't make it. I thought he had potential. He was on a soap opera post-idol, but I don't watch soaps, so I only saw him on there a few times.
He reminded me of the AI contestant who sang "WALKING IN MEMPHIS" a few seasons ago. Thin. Handsome. Didn't make it too far on the show... but I think he eventually went to work on a daytime soap. Cannot remember his name.
Luke looks like Orlando Bloom too. I have to wonder if the contestant really chooses his own song or not. It's obvious which contestants get the lighting, the backdrop...even the pre-set audience phony reaction (ie, arms swaying, or when an entire section just seems to KNOW to spring up at the exact same moment... please AI, don't pretend you don't have a hand in ALL of this.. including WHO sings WHAT...Who sings a ballad, who sings fast, etc)
I hope he gets more weeks to show off his face and voice.
Poor guy. He seemed nervous. I would have liked it if we could have heard his other auditions. I don't think it was as bad as the judges thought, but it definitely wasn't one of the best. Maybe he'll get another chance. Who knows.
Of all the 60s songs, and there are some great ones, I was overall disappointed the choices, not just his.
Very nice guy, but I agree, it wasn't the best. I hated how Paula said she heard his auditions and liked his voice... umm, well, we didn't get that 'privilege' and only got this one chance to hear him and make our opinion.
God is good. When you're too beautiful he doesn't give you the best voice. That is how the world works I guess.
Voice isn't that great. Good looking yes, personality or talent? No. I think he's gone, and if not, he will NOT end up in the top 12 is America is smart.
Kind of cute, but not that talented. Perhaps his talents lie elsewhere. Just thinking about what his other talents...is getting me warm.
That's a good screencap, Rickey! His expression just broke my heart and moved me to vote (although I wasn't going to considering a mediocre performance).
Hmm... <=\ I'd hate to admit it, but I'm guessing that the song he just sang sealed his fate... But we'll see... We'll see... I like him too by the way, but not as much as Amanda Overmyer, David Archuleta, & Ramiele Malubay.
