I thought he did fantastic with this cover. He brought something different to the table and it resonates well. Not really understanding why all the dislikes. Talented musician we got right here!

There’s no question he’s far more talented than Idol but even though there’s Themed weeks, seriously nothing he couldn’t do. I actually really liked this dreamy, sultry take on that song. Seriously, he is a fucking self taught prodigy! I love him.

I love him but this song was not really his type for his voice.so overall a bad performance. For example his version of coldplay, yellow was just amazing and beautiful. But somehow this song and rendition didn't suit him at all.

In my opinion, this sing wasn’t meant to be sang as a ballad. It basically contradicts the lyrics. Doesn’t really sound good.

HEY most DISLIKED American idol video of all time. Alejandro is breaking all kinds of records. This is his real personality. The shy shit he keeps putting on is fake. Watch his Instagram. He’s cringe.

My least favorite from Alejandro so far on idol. The first time I listened to it on tv I didn’t get it at all. But I just listened to it again and he is so talented that when I see him and hear him do his thing I begin to like music that I wouldn’t normally listen too. I enjoy this performance now and I thought his duet was amazing.

I didn’t like the song choice and the production was not clean. I guarantee he didn’t arrange this. There creative director probably help and it didn’t sound like Alejandro’s style.

Most of are failed to see beyond every Alejandro performance on AI and just attack his voice (which I never feel his voice is lacking). I keep reading from some comments that Idol is a singing competition, the singing ability that makes you an idol and a winner. No it is not necessary and it shouldn't be that way. That is why I stopped watching idol many years ago because everybody was more alike the same. Sometimes sound like karaoke. Just singing and play intrument (either guitar or piano). What Alejandro brings beside voice and mad dope skill of playing instruments is his sense of music, his sense of arrangements, basically his genius mind. No contestant has ever brought in electronic equipment to the table on AI, and because it's never been brought into the show, the production from AI maybe had little clue of how to do it on live show. But not Alejandro, he definitely had clue what he wanted to bring in and he always know what he wants to bring on stage, but he still has little experience on big stage live performance. So combined them, the performance sounded lacking. But for me it was good. I really appreciate it. His attempt to modify/re-arrange his way towards One Dance is something that many can't see and can't appreciate. I don't want to compare it with Drake original One Dance, because that was a work of months, recorded professionally, and done by more than one people. I never seen Drake live so no idea, but even on his live it must have been work of many people, not only Drake. What Alejandro did was himself. He picked the song, he rearranged, added his own spin in short limits of time, and brought it to live show. And to me, that is dope.

just listen this sound on audio which is great. The video make look bad.
