                      He came in 2d, but, by famous, only if you count two sold-out U.S. Tours, appearing at Lollapalooza Chicago, Austin City Limits, his debut album released as well as several singles, he is touring the U K now, and Europe in March, and he will be performing at the Rose Bowl/Parade -- All since the show ended in June. He's done more than the kid that actually won the show, so.. yea. This guy is the GOAT! He is pure genius and will be a household name soon.

                              I love this song, this performance, this man!  Hard to imagine, but it's been less than less than 5 months that we've known of him.  His music is all I want to listen too, and he has provided us with so much of it.  I am thrilled for his success!  Love you, Alejandro!  Thank you for EVERYTHING!
