                I have this to say about Alejandro. I love Coldplay. But after Alejandro performed "Yellow", I was like....Coldplay who? This young artist is going to become world famous. He brings me to tears, and I'm grateful I get to see him on his first tour since Idol.

                              Hell Yah he should have won, but they wanted the clean cut all american boy, an idol, NOT a ARTIST. I cheer Alejandro on, and watch for him to perform in my area.

                                  Alej is a great and talented musician, but his music and voice might not be the tastes of most people. And his songs were a bit boring because the tunes of all his songs are mostly similar. His vocal sounds just like another great singer, not something fresh and new as Laine Hardy. His music belongs to niche. Laine is different, everytime he sang, his voice and look.just grabbed you and you feel lifted.

                                          Alejandro has already been signed by United Talent Agency. UTA also represents D.J.Khaled , Mariah Carey and many many A-List actors, musicians, screenwriters and Producers.

                                          I am so glad that Alejandro did not win American Idol. Because he did not need to be tied down with a contract as a winner. Coming in second place was a good thing for him. I wish him all the best. He is talented and humble and I hope remains that way. Listening to him has been a real blessing. Nowhere to go from here but up.

                                                            Alejandero is extremely gifted and refreshingly original. As a guitarist myself, playing and performing for 56 years, I especially appreciate his open- tunings and tasty hammer on riffs - even while singing! His piano is amazing too.

                                                            He may expand his vocal range with time, but it is very enjoyable to listen to as is. Somebody mentioned Dan Fogelberg and Cast Stevens as comparisons, but I thought of Kenny Rankin and James Taylor. Also, he can write, arrange, compose songs for other singers, too, which may become a huge outlet for him.

                                                            Congrats to Laine Hardy. I see him as a headline cover band in Vegas or Tahoe, but hope he gets some original material to showcase his unique 'gravely' voice and develop.

                                                            American Idol is not really a karaoke singing contest, but a venue for true original talent to develop. I can't remember what happened to Adam Lambert's opponent, and likewise I'm sure we'll be hearing from Alejandro for a long time.

                                                              His voice isn't good enough to be the star they're predicting I can see him writing a lot of songs for singers in the future.

It was on one if her videos that told about how she came to be on the show.

A few months later she buys a Ukulele and starts writing songs at 11 years old. Grace's mother tells the leader of the acting troupe that Grace sounds pretty good with a ukulele. She put's her on a open mic night in the town beside them, a little place that looks like it holds 20 people. She plays about 3 songs. She did this about 4 times before she goes on AGT. Did you really think UTA or Alejandro would put anything on the internet that would contradict the story they're giving you?

Grace Vanderwaal use to play in small clubs and venues when she auditioned because she said so later on in the show. Didn’t know Brian Crum was on Broadway when he auditioned but, that’s a good fit for him. UTA didn’t see Alejandro until October when he auditioned because they said that’s why they’ve been after him since late fall 2018 because the auditions are taped then and American Idol is also a client of UTA. Anyway I’m very happy for him and am waiting with the rest of the fans for June 28th hopefully for his album. Alejandro started a countdown on his IG and post everyday counting down the days and he did say his album would be out soon after Idol was over.

                                                                @Carla Langenstein It's big business, how many times have you seen them say " I have never seen anything like it before" or "your nervous aren't you?" and a few other stupid statements meanwhile half of Asia or England have already seen them on talent shows before. Some have quit their professional careers and have moved on in life only to be brought back to these talent shows and they try to tell you they are married with kids and always wanted to try a professional career and have never done anything like this before. Brian Crum was singing on Broadway when he auditioned. Courtney Hadwin and Amanda Mena where previous on Children Talent shows.Glennis Grace had a big following in Europe after being on BGT but Simon keeps pretending he doesn't know them. Those two girls on Germany Got Talent (I think) that sang Creep, they were almost professional, there's no way you could convinced me that no talent agency has never seen them before. I think they got the idea of using talent they were going to sign anyways after seeing Grace VanderWaal. Nobody outside her family knew she sang outside her family and she was a 12 year already to be marketed, they probably thought "why don't we create that scenario ourselves" I believe Jackie, Amira, Angelina, Grace and a few others were freak accidents in discovering talent that young. The really good ones from Voice, Got Talent and X factor are acts where they can see ahead of time their appeal on stage before signing them, less chance of taking a huge loss after signing a loser

                                                                            He is a musical genius. The fact that he didn’t even start until he was 20 and has advanced this far already proves that. But. He is not what I would consider an American Idol to be. His music is unique and different but it’s limited to the range of people that will buy it or go to his concerts.

And he just got signed by one of the largest talent agencies in the entertainment industry, UTA. Alejandro has a massive worldwide fan base that continues to grow every single day!! 750 k and growing!!

He landed exactly where he should be--his music has been given a place in the spotlight but he doesn't have the obligations of being the winner. I haven't been a fan of American Idol but I'm grateful for bringing this talent to the fore.

                                                                                    • Carlene Augustine
