    alejandro.he didn’t win, Perry’s “karaoke” comment inadvertently brought up a possible reason he didn’t bring home the victory.

    Very repetitious and pitchy. This is not his forte. Sad to see them trying to make him into something he’s not. What he needs is a budget and a good producer and just let him create his own thing.

    My least favorite from Alejandro so far on idol. The first time I listened to it on tv I didn’t get it at all. But I just listened to it again and he is so talented that when I see him and hear him do his thing I begin to like music that I wouldn’t normally listen too. I enjoy this performance now and I thought his duet was amazing.
