20 thoughts on “Is Performing an Original Song During Hollywood Week Worth the Risk? – American Idol 2020

  1. Alejandro didn't win yet his name is always being mentioned in every American Idol episode.

  2. I love how they always talk about Alejandro as if he had won AI, cause we all know he should have

  3. Arthur Gunn sang that CCR song two different ways, proving his vocal ability and style. People try to come on Idol and present themselves as a complete artist before setting a foundation of vocal ability and style. GIVE THE PEOPLE VARIETY. TELL US WHO YOU ARE. Alejandro's musical compositions were just outstanding, it's uncanny and that's why it worked for him.

  4. Alejandro reaalllllly set the bar highest!!
    You read it right!! Highest!!! To all the singer songwriter contestants on idol.

  5. TO summarize: It is ABSOLUTELY worth the risk if your craft is strong enough to stand in a light as hard as this one.

    That's gonna be a no for almost everyone, but not everyone.

  6. Ugh please stop comparing people to Alejandro. . He was never my idol and I could never see what the fuss was. Granted, his guitar skills were epic but his voice was mediocre. .

  7. Me: studying my school presentation at home and knowing everything without reading it.
    Me on the day of the presentation: 01:57

  8. Most of the songs didnt seem as bad as the judges acted, but I guess we didnt see the whole performance.

  9. Okay!! Jimmy Levy’s song “Shadow” is amazing! If anyone says otherwise, they are a fool! Listen to the studio version! He’s a great singer!

  10. Let people be original!!!! They are going to have to be if they make it!!

  11. Originals are only a risk if they're not bops . They want to make money " ppl "

  12. JIMMY LEVY SONG IS SOOOO FREAKING GOOD GO LISTEN TO IT ON SPOTIFY!!!! Also I think one of the reasons it sounded bad was because he sang a capella
