Tim Urban – Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Video MP3 American Idol Top 11
Tim Urban sings Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen on the American Idol Top 11
Rickey: I liked this! The plaid background! (But judges hated it).
Randy Jackson: The vocals were so boring. It was bad karaoke.
Ellen DeGeneres: You have huge fans. It was corny. It was pushed too hard. I didn’t get it.
Kara DioGuardi: Little girls will love that. You acted like you already made it.
Simon Cowell: It was completely utterly pointless and silly. Two weeks – silly, silly song choices.

Got Something to Add?
His song choices are unbelievable. I really liked his version of 'Hallelujah' ... but the last 2 weeks -> terrible.
the ha-ha and the fake smile after every bad comment from the judges and the "i just want to have fun" comment... enough of those.
I played it back just now, and I honestly can't figure out what was so wrong with the performance. Sure it was corny, but it was fun. When you compare it to all the other horrific performances we saw last night -- and especially when you consider he had the lucky draw of following Paige last night!...<i>anyone</i> could have saved the show after <i>that</i> trainwreck! -- it was one of the few high points. I cast a lone vote for Tim last night, and after reading the drek from all his detractors in this thread, I'm very glad I did.
Could Tim be any further away from Freddy Mercury? I appreciate that he was trying to show some personality tho. Bland vocals, sorry.
i liked it! it was hugely entertaining and fun. you cant have everybody treating it like an opera performance
Honestly, this entire season is a joke. You've got crap, and you've got better crap. I doubt anyone but MAYBE Krystal and Siobhan would have made it past Hollywood week a few years ago.
In an ocean of dull, boring, and overall crappy music, there lies a beacon of hope named "Tim". The only thing this season has going for it is the comic relief provided by Tim. It's not worth watching the rest of the performances anymore once he's gone, as all entertainment value will be gone (although, sometimes Paige's horrendous performances bring a small smile to my face while I'm cringing)
Face it, this season is filled with a bunch of jokes, and Tim Urban is the funniest one.
i hate this song... and should not be sang on idol ever again...
wth with all the song choices??? what were the producers thinking???? i'll just go and fly a kite... blah...
and oh, i think tim will not go tonight... as much as i hated that performance... :/
First off I really do like this song in general. While watching this performance there were some parts that were eh but overall I thought it was really entertaining and it kept the audience interested. So when the judges and people consider his performance a safe choice, I consider it an alright choice because he played to the audience especially young girls/girls who do vote a lot for this show.
She has been through a lot in her life and that should be of value for contestants on American Idol.
OMFG! is he trying to be JPL? he's so not going to be eliminated after that hilarious performance. haha.
How do people take this guy seriously. Honestly there is no reason he should be in the top 12. He wasnt even supposed to be in the top 24. I guess people forgot that possibly? Anyway, im starting to feel embarrassed FOR HIM. Please put this clown out of his misery.
It's just sad that he will most likely stay around for a while even though there are many people WAY better then him. It was just a pointless performance.
Tim will be hitting the daytime and late night shows up next!
Ellen, David Letterman, and Wendy Williams Shows awaits him. He's out this week
I actually loved this... I thought they were going to give him rave reviews! And also, I was so surprised (in a good way) by the slide in the song. I liked it altogether. He was on pitch the whole time too... So I don't see how it was thatttt bad.
yeah he sang it ok but honestly that wasn't good enough. his vocals is very limited, im not saying that the one that can belt out the highest note should win but the thing is he didn't even make it a bit interesting or different, there was nothing special about this performance. how i wish i was watching lacey instead of this guy..
Well I'm 52 and I enjoyed it immensely. Great performance! It was definitely not his best singing night technically, but he sang it fine. What I really like about Urban is that he has a distinctive voice - I know it's him singing, whereas some of the singers on the show who have bigger tricks just sound like lots of other people.
So maybe that song applies to the young girls AND to us old fogies who remember the song from when it first came out.
The judges are so clueless! Their over-the-top criticism only fuels my rage (and my TEXTING fingers) and I'm sure I'm not the only Tim fan who feels the same! He was great tonight!
he will absolutly go thru this week.not because he is good.there are couple worse singer than him still in competetion.so no worry about his performance.
I think it's hilarious. The judges choose Tim for the top 24 and then they act horrified that he is the way he is. It serves them right. I've gotta give Tim credit, though. Vocally, he's less than stellar, however, he is improving week to week, he's gaining confidence and he worked that stage to the delight of his tweenybopper fans. I can't see Tim going anywhere for awhile. Priceless!
Tim was awesome! He was totally channeling Jon Peter Lewis. He was Like the love child of Jon and Sanjaya :D
umm...maybe because...here's a thought...it's a show for the BEST performers...not one's who play it safe...just saying...
The performance was a gimmick but he tried to learn from the criticism. He was on pitch he just didn't push his vocal enough. The judges beat up on him a bit more than necessary.
It was fun in a, to quote Simon "silly, silly" way. Elvis he isn't, but it was at least entertaining, and I didn't have to cover my ears.
I loved him so much until he got into top 12 and alex didn't. Majority of the people who watch this show are tween girls. So obviously, he's going to get into the top 10 and go on tour.
It was a very amusing and fun performance though. I have to admit, just like every other girl who watches american idol, he's pretty cute.
Anyone who votes for him doesn't respect good music because you can't honestly think he's a good singer?? People who voted for him in the past have already cost us the chance to see other good singers, so you should quit while you're ahead.
OMG, i thought i was the only one that had enough with "i just wanna have fun" comment! i think they all are required to say that. a little note from the producer... you know..
I don't think it was that bad. I actually really enjoyed watching it. And just to listen wasn't bad either. He wasn't pitchy but the song was a slower tempo than it should have been. See what I don't get is the judges pretty much told him he needed to get a little more comfortable on stage that he was too stiff and had no charisma basically. So what does he do? Loses the guitar and goes off and they bag him for it. They need to make up their minds. But it's like I said before they don't like him so no matter what he does or doesn't did they are still going to rag on him.
To the person dissing Tim yet liking Andrew....if you like Andrew, you must not respect music either because he is vocally just as bad if not worse than Tim. Tim holds a tune, his song choice was HORRIBLE this week but at least Tim compensates his mediocre singing with his commercial-ness, like the Jonas Brothers or Miley Cyrus they will sell records even though they're not that good.....Andrew will sell jackall.
Yadda Yadda. All I heard people can think of is "You are prolly 10,11,12,13,..."
I'm so tired of it. And maybe you are 60??!
It doesn't matter who we want to vote for. The thing you said is just so crappy.
I'm 18 btw if you wanna know. psh
I like this performance. He was entertaining.
I also think Crystal was boring. yeah right.
mmmm what are you a peophile with all this talk about 9 or 12 year old girls? sorry but im a dude and an adult. to be honest it doesn't matter where the rest of them leave or not , i want a lee vs cyrstal finale.
also...votefortheworst proves my point. They continuously post articles of idol critics showing how awful he truly is and they are supporting him. If anything they solidify my point more then anything so I might send them a thank you letter actually.
bahah prolly a 12 year old girl?
I think votefortheworst is hysterical actually, I wouldn't thrash them. But you giving him more votes then allows him to go ahead of someone else...im not a mathematition or anything but that's simple logic..another way of showing you're prolly a 12 years old girl.
ohh and by the way Andrews been my favorite from the start but I'm starting to like Lee and Crystal also.
how ? any vote for him doesn't take away a vote from some one else. i haven't voted for him but ignorant coments like this kind of make me want to throw some votes at him tonight. now go run off and write a stupid letter to vftw on how tim is still on the show and your "favorite" was voted off. thats the problem this year , people just need to pick one person and vote for them , only one person will win the show. stop having 10 favorites.
