          Most of are failed to see beyond every Alejandro performance on AI and just attack his voice (which I never feel his voice is lacking).
          I keep reading from some comments that Idol is a singing competition, the singing ability that makes you an idol and a winner.

          No it is not necessary and it shouldn't be that way. That is why I stopped watching idol many years ago because everybody was more alike the same. Sometimes sound like karaoke. Just singing and play intrument (either guitar or piano).

          What Alejandro brings beside voice and mad dope skill of playing instruments is his sense of music, his sense of arrangements, basically his genius mind.

          No contestant has ever brought in electronic equipment to the table on AI, and because it's never been brought into the show, the production from AI maybe had little clue of how to do it on live show. But not Alejandro, he definitely had clue what he wanted to bring in and he always know what he wants to bring on stage, but he still has little experience on big stage live performance.
          So combined them, the performance sounded lacking to many.

          But for me it was good. I really appreciate it. His attempt to modify/re-arrange his way towards One Dance is something that many can't see and can't appreciate.

          I don't want to compare it with Drake original One Dance, because that was a work of months, recorded professionally, and done by more than one people. I never seen Drake live so no idea, but even on his live it must have been work of many people, not only Drake.

          What Alejandro did was himself. He picked the song, he rearranged, added his own spin in short limits of time, and brought it to live show.
          And to me, that is dope.

                  All I can say is I’ve never cared for this show and sure as heck would never take the time to vote but when I ran into this dude on YouTube I figured out how to vote and gave him 8. I gave 2 to Jeremiah cause he is sick too.
