Only the Good Die Young?
Terrible. If this song was young, I'd be happy if it died. What a terrible version of the song. Billy Joel may start drinking again when he hears this.
Good things to come
A unique voice. a good one too. Shame he had to leave, but top 8 is strong. He doesn't need to be singing stuff that doesn't fit him. A Reggae type album will be killer. Reggae is back on the map in the Indie scene. He can bridge the gap some, especially with all his Idol fans, and gain some new ones. Good luck to this guy, I think he'll do awesome things.
Honestly, I think DeAndre is the most talented singer in this competition with huge ability of singing – real singing. I thought he would sing "River of Dreams"– it would be ideal for him. His interpretation of this song is not my favorite (I prefer "Master Blaster" and "Georgia on my mind" more) – it didn't show me ups and downs of his voice, but anyway I love this guy! I think he will be a star!! In my dreams I wish him to win AI, but at the same time I understand that this does not happen. It makes me sad.
