Fikrlar

  • Sam Smith Style.

  • ele é um artista completo nao precisa de nada... tem talento carisma e uma voz de anjo! perfeito!

  • Why do they make him play such trash ? , his own music is genial , dam

  • Yeah let Alejandro. Lose. He is an artist much needed in these trying times. He brings Peace.

  • There’s no question he’s far more talented than Idol but even though there’s Themed weeks, seriously nothing he couldn’t do. I actually really liked this dreamy, sultry take on that song. Seriously, he is a fucking self taught prodigy! I love him.

  • Alejandro Aranda, Keep it up man, you're doing great! You be you m8!

  • I like this one better than the original. Way better

  • this sounded worse than karaoke

  • Damn its a whole “Alejandro Aranda” concert!

  • 1:03 When you're trying to sing along... But got the lyrics wrong. 😂

  • I love him but this song was not really his type for his voice.so overall a bad performance. For example his version of coldplay, yellow was just amazing and beautiful. But somehow this song and rendition didn't suit him at all.

  • I like HIS ARTISTRY! DON'T LET THE INDUSTRY GET U TWISTED DUDE! MUCH ❤️!

  • He is horrible don't see what all the fuss is about

  • I made a NEW VIDEO LYRICS OF ALEJANDROS NEW SONG! CHECK IT OUT! THANKS uz-tv.com/tv/video-UoFAejcKhTo.html

  • Ok 1st thing 1st i love the fact that he sing while playing drum machine on idol it's so refreshing to watch, cmiiw i never seen that on idol ever before, it's fun watching him play it on idol stage

  • I love this kid! It is a rare exception and deserves to win. He is all heart, no sad story, no fancy dress - he is whom he is - a musical genius.

  • In my opinion, this sing wasn’t meant to be sang as a ballad. It basically contradicts the lyrics. Doesn’t really sound good.

  • HEY most DISLIKED American idol video of all time. Alejandro is breaking all kinds of records. This is his real personality. The shy shit he keeps putting on is fake. Watch his Instagram. He’s cringe.

  • please vote right now! text 11 to 21523

  • That DJ performance he did was him creating a whole new genre of music, DAM!

  • Seems like his voice stays the same tone constantly

  • f you guys love Alejandro! COME CHECK out my Compilation of Best of his Instagram MIXED! @

  • Your smile 😊😊😊😊

  • This was horrible... Truly. Why would they not let him play his own beautiful music, this commercial bullshit just completely tainted his talent. Very disappointed.

  • The more I listen to this, the more I love it. A really genious take on this song!

  • all those goddamn songs out there but he chose this...but i mean, he nailed it, alright, if not only for that goddamn loud drums and almost inaudible piano playing. american idol, let him do his thing!!!

  • Ugh...that fake smile i dont believe it...I like his work but this is not the voice show...its American idol...his looks is not as an idol...is more like the "elotes" vendor. 🤦‍♀️ he is on TV for goodness sakes!!!!

    • Congrats you seem like an evil jealous nut job

  • Not feeling this...it takes away from the genre his voice is good at.

  • That was a hard listen.

  • In my opinion, this is better than the original.

  • A sweet but very weak voice - not finals worthy at all!

  • I love that Alejandro is showing us his beaming smile now.

  • 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.

  • I liked him at first, but with that monotone voice if his his and no guitar, he sucks! Over rated,

  • I didn’t like the song choice and the production was not clean. I guarantee he didn’t arrange this. There creative director probably help and it didn’t sound like Alejandro’s style.

  • This is garbage

  • I like him and I like some Drake songs, but this was a bad song choice and a bad performance.

  • damn, this guy is way tooooo good

  • Better play it 1.25x speed thank me later You’re welcome in advance

    • yes that version is good too!! I need to buy all of his songs stat

    • Yep!

    • Yup.. I'll thank you later

    • Christopher Laput THANKS

  • This kinda sucks

  • He isn’t very good. The most mediocre singers are always over hyped.

  • Hes good. But this sounds like the last shit I took lol

    • LOL! So did it come out smooth or did you have to strain yourself a little??

  • Kelly means to be now, you.

  • And he's a song writer too.

  • Convince

  • No

  • 🔥 🔥 🔥

  • When I saw the performance the first time, I didnt like it, event touhg I loved all his performances, but after I repeat this 3 times in my computer now I just cant stop listening to it, It took me some time to understand this piece of art

    • IKR? me too! first time i cringed. 10th time OH HEELLL YAAA THIS IS LIT

  • This guy can remaster songs from scratch better than the original ones

  • Anyone know what's her name? Haha lol she's soooo cuteee 1:00

  • Tbh he's good but he's really gassed up. There are a lot of contestants better than him, let's be honest.

    • doesnt matter who is best, but who gets the most votes

  • back again... love listening to you! don't for get to vote #11 this sunday!!

  • Once in a generation type of musician. The last one we had was Prince. This guy might be bigger, it's up to him. He might not like the fame, Prince didn't either.

  • Pisses me off family comes around when they are in the lime lite and making it

  • Stop it with this pop bs, be yourself Alejandro!!!!!!

    • he didnt choose this song necessarily

  • He reminded me of Lincoln Park Lead singer as he played...I dunno he just took it there...👏

  • Wtf this sucked like his voice sucked on the song

  • honestly kinda disapointed with this onw .. :/

  • You have blesser, fading away ,poision,i wont fall in love tonight and so many gr8 originals and yet you play fooking drake song wtf. Worst performance till date, dont be too complacent be your self !

    • he has a list of songs to choose from. he cant play originals every time bc of his contract

  • Soooo talented! You should win!

  • This is just whining

  • Errr, might as well get Mick Jagger to sing BoyzIIMen. Misfit written all over this performance.

  • I like this guy,very talented,but he’s whisper singing.i don’t hear his voice project.i little over hyped

  • He looks like a long lost Hispanic Franco brother... awesome performance Alejandro!

  • NAILED IT!

  • I didn't like it and I like it more when your upfront and not behind the booth.

  • Soy tu fan cabronamente ! 🤩

  • Srsly a bad rendition. Yea its fresh doesnt mean ks good. Overrated dude. Nice guy but overrated.

  • This was the only performance by Alejandro that I’ve heard that I didn’t like. Definitely not my cup of tea. He definitely should win Idol

  • Man just check it. Another cover in which Alejandro’s version is much better than the original. Pop stars oughta be, please don’t let this guy cover me up next.

  • Horrible song choice!

  • I’m sorry but i just don’t like this guy. He’s not about all the hype y’all giving him

    • John Negrete couldn’t care less about my credentials. Just stated my opinion here.

    • Yeah your comment has more cred than than the peofessional judge's opinions hong dong

  • tf is this shit

  • Katy perry ain’t following him on Instagram tf

  • 🤦‍♂️

  • I don’t think he is very good tbh

  • 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. 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.

  • just listen this sound on audio which is great. The video make look bad.

  • i dint like it at the begin but with more time hearing it, now i am starting to like it....

  • That Laine character may have the teeny bopper vote..,but I'd like to believe that Alejandro has got everyone else's vote; man, woman, and child!

  • 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 UZ-tv I figured out how to vote and gave him 8. I gave 2 to Jeremiah cause he is sick too.

    • You can vote 30 x please maximize your votes

  • Better than the original!!

  • Alejandro This pop star musician completed 😍🤘🏼🎸🎤☠

  • Look at Katyyyyy😍😍😍

  • Super!! Excelente presentación hermanito!! Saludos desde Chile.

  • I have to live on another planet this shit sucked they need to let him play his own songs thats was bad.

  • I’m a fan but this sucked

  • I don't get why he doesn't go with the guitar he plays so much better.

  • Drake 🤦🏼‍♂️ you’re way better this this shit man. Hopefully they dont ruin your chance when the voting starts by making you play crap

  • Am I the only one who thought this was trash ? If you think so too please like I need to know who’s with me

  • You think the judges would know the difference between a Producer/Artist and a DJ. He's on another level. Pure genius!

  • Bello! 😘

  • *Over one million viewers, this evidence of sweeping success* .👍👍👏👏

  • If only I could give him 100 votes not just 10!

    • PwettyPwincess You can give him 30! 10x app, 10x by website, and 10x by text. 💜

  • This man pisses excellence

  • nice

  • They are turning him into something he isn't. They loved him for him and now they just want more of the same.

  • horrible, why people like him so damn much?

    • nice, humble, hardworking, doesnt want to win but to learn who he is as a person and love himself

  • No funny shit somebody put me hip please cuz i’m missing what the big deal is with him cuz i don’t think he can sing at all compared to everybody else in the competition 💯💯 like for example laci she can sing her ass off or madison she can sing her ass off but he just whispers through his shit and stands in one place every time 💯 he can play the hell out of instruments but that’s it for real in my opinion 💯

  • Alejandro is the best
