    Maybe he should’ve lost weight naturally instead of taking the easy way out. All these unnecessary surgeries and then the sob stories for something that could’ve been avoided are annoying.

    Too many sappy stories before the audition, but this one was a moving one. There were some good things in his vocal, but he should lose the exaggerated, sloppy runs.

  • David A Sholes Jr

    Definitely good voice and good range just a little too powerful, and like they said choppy. Look forward to hearing the smooth out version
