                                It is actually a good thing he came second, then American Idol doesn't own all the rights to his own songs, and they will be hits, and he doesn't get attached to a 10 year stifling contract. I think the judges had a hand in that, even though the voting public decides the winner. Also a good thing that the voting public is 16 year old girls, that love a good ol', good looking ( totally manufactured ) country boy with great teeth and a drawl, that decides to do Chuck Berry ( but can't belt out a guitar solo like Chuck, mostly strums chords ), and sings karaoke.

                                  Are you sure about this?. I read in one of the Youtube threads that if original songs are performed on AI, they own rights. Hope you're right as I would hate to see Alejandro get financially screwed. He performed some great songs on the show. My favorites Blesser, Poison and Ten Years.

                                This guy is taking songs I typically wouldn’t listen to and making them appeal to me. This is in regards to all of his AI cover songs 💯

                                                      Alejandro doesn't like to do covers, but he should definitely include this cover on his album along with Coldplay's "Yellow." Excellent job with both songs.
