                            🤣😂 I really liked Alejandro's choice for Laine! Couldn't stop laughing when he said, "anything from Britney Spears!"

                              You know you’re a true artist when every contestant wants you to just sing originals.

                                    American Idol, this one's for you...
                                    PLEASE (literally begging on my knees on behalf of thousands of people, if not a couple million) PLEASE do NOT attempt to change or alter Alejandro's music in ANY way, once he wins!!!! No offense, but we don't want that mainstream pop sound we've heard for years, from pretty much all the other winners/contestants on the show. We're already in love with him & his music, JUST THE WAY IT IS!!! Thank you kindly.

                                        Okay but Laine and Alejandro’s friendship is awesome. Laine saying “If I were going to pick a song for him I wouldn’t because his own stuff is awesome and let him do his own stuff” and Alejandro saying Britney Spears for Laine because it would be funny 😂😂

                                          I would love Alejandro to connect with “hurt”.

                                            C Frayre, Yasss!! On piano. You're right, if anyone could "connect" to that song, it's Alejandro. Immagine the range of emotions we would get to hear from him. Not to mention, it's obviously a Trent Reznor (NIN) song. 🤙

                                              Lol it feels like they’re making it obvious that Alejandro will be the next American Idol by always putting him first and like making him stand in the middle most of the time 😂

                                                        Yesssss!!! I am a huge Dylan fan and I think Alejandro has the potential to get to near his level. I wish Dylan would like discover him, pull him off Idol and be like "son, you're coming with me".

AND the rest of America see's it. Of course he's singing by himself next week, AI is playing favoritism and it's not fair to the other contestants!!! The other contestants have to remember lines of other peole, so yeah if Alejandro wins,,,I call Bullshit!!
