    Why not ask TOTO to come. Ah well that s a level to high to have on the show I guess. This is rape of one of the greatest songs

      Cringe. Weezer and Wade sounded fucking awful. Walker did good but they chose shitty songs.

        They could've thought this out more. Wade should've been given a different song, but I would also say that pairing both Walker and Wade with Weezer was a risky choice. While it did challenge them, it was not a smart choice. Walker did amazing nonethless, and I still believe that Wade is an amazing oh talented guy. Weezer can be great, but this was not one of those times. All in all, I would say there were good and bad things about this performance, and that some of the hate towards the producers, music management and the people on stage was very unneeded. I do agree that it could've been better, but I will still forever love Idol and the two amazing contestants up there.

          And ya! This song choice totally sucked for him but that goes right along with any artist. He has his OWN UNIQUE sexy 60s voice! I LOVVVVED listening to him perform on AMERICA IDOL! He’s the whole reason I watched. And NO! I don’t know him

                                        Well they didn’t try to showcase Wades talents at all in the finale. walker acts silly and is a Bobby Bones clone- which is why he is going to tour with him. As a top finalist, Wade should have been put with a singer or group by himself that would highlight his gritty voice. They totally did him a disservice and Wade fans were totally pissed with their treatment of him. Even Laci Kay Booth and Raghu got their own songs. Clearly, some favoritism was shown. I’m not going to watch this shown again...

                                          I think idol made a crucial decision of pairing wade and walker in the same performance; they both have different singing styles and forte.

                                          I would say that this is not that terrible (thank god, walker saved it) but it could've been good and even better if walker got to sing with lionel... my thoughts.

                                            Walker would be okay if he'd stop with the clown stuff while he's singing.

                                                        Should’ve just let Walker sing all three songs.

                                                            These songs were nothing like Wade could easily sing. They didn't give him any parts he could really sing. He was completely lost. He's definitely more of a solo artist. Oh well. This was a mess but everyone sang along because...just...because lol
