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.

I feel like he lacks proper control of his voice at certain points and something seemed off with him and the piano. He has such an amazing voice. Maybe he was just nervous or he needs to brush up a little with some vocal lessons. With a voice like that, proper control could help him go far.

Gets surgery, doctors mess up, he gets called an inspiration. He paid money to lose his weight instead of being a real inspiration and working out to lose it to look the way he does
Glamorrous Hace 28 días
Cyril Balch that’s what I’m saying! He’s no inspiration. His medical issues could have been avoided if he would’ve just got his ass to the gym.
