    Thanks to this guy, SONGLAND by NBC was create. If AI doesn’t get it and continue with the karaoke format, they will loose a once in a lifetime opportunity and much more audience next season.
    Here is an idea ABC for the title of a new show “World OG’s SSW IDOL”
    Original singer-songwriter. Think about it, the winner is already made for a quick album and tour.

    He isn't no Mayer, Meyer or Mayor. He is a musical genius ALEJANDRO ARANDA!💎 No comparison to anyone else. Please stop categorizing him. He is totally in a league of his own. I wish everyone in this world would see a person & stop categorizing by color, nationality, etc.

      kindaouttaluck Bullshit !!! He was trying to make eye contact with Uché and if you pay attention Alejandro tells Uché “ you’re amazing”... so stop making shit up. And watch the whole damn episode so you can see that when Lionel saved Uché, Uché began to cry and the only one comforting him was ALEJANDRO. Alejandro comforted and embraces Uché and he didn’t remove his arm from around Uché. Watch the whole thing before you try and damage someone’s character asshole!

      Donna Davis 10 days ago

      No, they haven't. As a matter of fact, the show's producers have restricted it up until now, but his songs are so good, I don't think they had a choice and his music is already known by so many people. It's not like he's playing music that nobody knows.

    He needs to just cut a quick album recording with the songs from his youtube and insta and we will all buy it. No need for idol and their record deals- im prob the only one hoping he doesn't win because then their exec's .....will be in charge of his recordings etc- second place is fine with me as long as he records an album. I say just do it now yourself alejandro- cheap equipment who cares- you'll outsell ....any winner from idol before the shows even over. 😉

    Okay, show is over. I'm ready to buy his music. I had stopped watching American Idol, now he's the reason I'm back. Plays his own instruments, puts his own twist on songs, writes his own songs, etc...
    Don't matter how he looks blond hair black however these judges or whomever try to influence him HE STAYS TRUE. it's like chillin in the to an awesome jam session when he plays guitar. Guy doesn't need that band drowning him out in the back ground. He's is in a class of his own. Sign him to a label already...🎶...just love his overall sound. For the first time in a long time, an artist appears and its not so much about the current fashion, or trying to fit in with current's a just a sinple guy with his voice, guitar and piano. He's awesome to listen to. 🎶🎸
