Luke was all smiles during Willie’s audition, telling him that he didn’t want it to end. Watch here to enjoy Willie’s breathtaking performance, and to hear the vocals that Katy referred to as “a voice that stops people in their tracks.”

    Ma l'analisi semantica delle opposizioni esterne rivela l'urgente necessita dei compiti posti dalla societa. Si ritiene generalmente che molti personaggi famosi siano presentati in una luce estremamente positiva.💋
    そして、基本的なユーザーの行動シナリオが非常に前向きに提示されていることは間違いありません。ターゲットオーディエンスの代表者の高いレベルの関与は、単純な事実の明確な証拠です:ポジションを形成するための日常業務の開始、および通常のものの新鮮な見方-確かに撤退の新しい視野を開きます流動資産。

    he won't win and he won't win because of his weight. American Idol is NOT about talent. American Idol is strictly a popularity contest. It's the reason why Jennifer Hudson came in 7th place in 2004 despite clearly being at as good as the winner that year Fantasia Barrino. Let this be a lesson to you in this world. The world rarely promotes people on talent, competence and merit alone. On what effin planet is Jennifer Hudson the 7th best singer? Hell, on what planet is Jasmin Trias a better singer than Jennifer Hudson? It is maddening to see mediocrity routinely get ahead in this country. We are no longer a meritocracy in this country, but a likatocracy with more people getting ahead on likability than merit. This man is clearly the best singer already in this competition, but mark my words, his weight will be held against him and he will NOT win.
    ***Oh, FYI, This is why "The Voice" was created, to make a show purely about talent & NOT looks and likability.

    The Lord blessed him so graciously with that voice. The greatest male singer I've ever heard and the winner of American Idol in the biggest landslide in the history of the show. Grace Kinstler is incredible and would win it any other year this dude wasn't there. And then there's Murphy who the clueless judges couldn't figure out is a star

    Its going to be between Alyssa Wray, Willie Spence & Grace Kinstler. There's your top 3 with ( unless she fucks up royally or if America is completely retarded ) Alyssa Wray being the winner and Willie Spence being the runner up. And possibly vice versa. Which is not a bold statement, its very obvious those are the top 3.
