        Song choice is a major reason we lose such good talent on these shows.
        Would have loved him to sing Leonard Cohen " HALLELUJAH " maybe someday I will get to buy it. Loved your time on the show Wade. Never give up!

          Terrible song choice by Bobby and even worse music accompaniment. Wade wasn’t feelin’ it and it ruined his night. He deserved better.

          That said, I felt the entire show was less than stellar production; not up to Idol standard.

                      No wonder he didn't get selected. This video was posted after the 3 were chosen. Unfair to the youtuber watchers

                        The Alejandro Show is alive and well. Sorry to see you go, Wade! But real talk, your voice is way too gravely that you miss notes and it feels like you’re covering it up by gaveling your voice even harder. Hum 🤔

                                  Elaine Newman Me too But Not too much Because American Idol did announced That Wade & The other 10 conestants That got Eliminated are coming back to perform at The finale. So, It Isn't A total lost.

                                    Wade hit his stride with this song. I felt it man. Loved what he brought to the show and he deserves to have a career in music.

                                        I voted for Wade 10 times! Hated to see him leave, but I know he has a bright future in music.

                                          Eh,.. I liked it just because it was ALRIGHT but nothing really special and he should have been gone weeks ago imo.

                                                Wade should have stayed instead of lane. Waxe is unique. Oh wel... my fav Alejandro won the show again❤❤❤
