                                Once again the judges made the best artist on the show, the loser. They talk them up so much, the country gets sick of it and vote the underdog. The same thing happened to Adam Lambert.

                                        Several things come to mind here.  Obviously Laine is talented, handsome, and has stage presence;  in contrast to how performers are packaged by this type of platform,  Laine is also shy and endearing, qualities the corporate suits will [unfortunately]  wash away because they will try to morph this sweet young man into a sex symbol palatable for BOTH tweens and consumers of any gender or orientation over 18 because he has marketability across the board  ... they will have a larger share of the market if they [ keep his Asian ethnicity in the background, and whitewash him for the Southern and Midwestern White Bible Belt, hence his mention of wearing a suit to church, checked off that box  ].  As an African American female,  I recall how Whitney Houston was "White washed" and watered down to be palatable across the board or mainstreamed by Clive Davis ...her Gospel background was ERASED from her sound, [I am no Bible thumper] , however,  we see how that ended.  Laine Hardy has a sultry,  guttural , soulful voice, let's hope that he has someone around him who will let him stay the way HE wants to perform, NOT conform to a cookie cutter version of how the industry wants to MARKET him like a piece of meat.  
                                          Please stop saying he is the reincarnation of Elvis, he is an artist in his own right who is also a singer/ songwriter...[ like an Elton John, Carly Simone, Jim Croce , etc ]  If anything the focus should be on his talent as a performer and his ability to write his own material [ which means ROYALTIES and LONGEVITY, he can perform and also write for other artists ] in a very fickle and superficial industry, diversification is the key to survival.  Kelly Clarkson won AI in 2002, yet she just got out of the AI contract 2 YEARS AGO !  Basically they own his career until his contract is up.... he is too young to be touring nonstop to promote the AI brand, if anything, Alejandro, who is also EXTREMELY talented , got the better of the deal , because he is also a singer/songwriter who got to promote his own material exclusively on the show, and he is NOT bound to an American Idol contract for the next 16 years as a winner.  Hopefully Laine had legal representation to thoroughly research how binding the contract was, if it is anything like the one Kelly Clarkson signed...indentured servitude to the music industry is so early 2000, with artists  now self-publishing and downloading their OWN material WITHOUT the middle man [AI] .  Anyway, I wish him all the best of life and success in his future endeavors.  He really moved me with all of his performances, especially his rendition of "The Weight" sung as a duet with celebrity guest Ellie King, [ actor < Rob Schneider's daughter , who at 29 has the vocal strength of a Phoebe Snow and Janis Joplin, rolled into one ],  Ellie and Laine, both have Fillipino roots, I love that our country produces such wonderful music , from our DIVERSE fellow Americans.  Sidebar: the personal stories in this segment had me teary,   the suicides of his brothers broke my heart for this young man; we lost a 22 year old nephew and still grieve for him.

                                                Every video i look at about American Idol has a comment about Alajandro. No way lane really one.

                                                  "America" IS A CONTINENT, NOT A RACIST COUNTRY. Bullshit results, if the most talented person doesn't win is BECAUSE THIS BLOODY COUNTRY CANT PASS ITS TRUE RACIST COLORS. IF You're DARK, DO NOT BOTHER COMPETE ON THIS BULLSHIT OF A CONTEST.

                                                  Alejandro should win this competition

                                                    This is the difference: these judges are also artists. They completely understand the AI hopefuls from a performer's point of view, which is something that a "producer-only" can't do. Simon would have likely been dismissive of Alejandro ( I can just hear him always saying "It's a SINGING competition!") and not recognize the beauty of his more subtle vocal style. American Idol is no longer just a "singing competition". It has evolved into an artist's competition, and it will be all the better for it.

I said last year that it was my last year and I didn't watch the first two weeks, of this season, but my son told me to watch I had to see it because of that awesome, incredible, talented Alejandro. I am hoping this time they will be true to themselves to put this first Latino with pure talent through. Elaine had his chance already and he doesn't have one original song..

Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Daughtry, Adam Lambert, Kellie Pickler, Tori Kelly, David Cook and more. Amazing artists have come from this show. I think the problem is the novelty has worn off... now the Voice is stealing Idol winners...

                                                                                          They are sincere, honest and really interested in these kids. They never humiliate them like former judges have done in the past. The show has also improved greatly. The new format is wonderfully entertaining. I hope they stay for a long time. Idol has been reborn. Katy is so cookoo, but LOVE HER.

He could have done that privately!!!
