                    The dude plays from his heart. He used to play in front of the record store where we used to all hang out growing up in Claremont. He went to the folk music center and did a duet with Ben Harper. He's saying that his passion is making music not about the bling. He'll go far and not burn out like a lot of these pop stars do. The industry is cut throat and mpre about image than talent. He was smart and going on tour right away and focusing on his music than the status of being on American Idol. Real musicians who actually make it are a dying breed and its tough to make these days even if you play your heart out.

                      Such a beautiful humble soul! He deserved that title of American idol! Definitely a rigged show! Laine wasn’t even as close as talented like Alejandro 🤷🏻‍♀️ Homie is my American idol! Hope to hear from him soon💜

                        He needs to be recognized and to do a tour right after AI, just makes me happy

                              It doesn't matter how the voting went, Alejandro was the clear standout by a million miles. Can't wait for the album.

                                              If he is scared to fly across country to New york, how did he get to Hawaii?

                                                He was my favorite from his audition.
                                                He has a happy spirit.

                                                    Alejandro should have won. He really is a talented and gifted singer and composer. That's why american idol is questionable at best. Remember what happened to jennifer hudson and katherine mcphee. They were not winners but have become major alejandro will be.

I hadnt watched american idol in years, but i watched this past season because of him. i never voted even when i watched , but i did for this kid, as much as i could. i { like most} like that hes so humble, but im concerned for his fear of flying issues. flying is an integral part of any performers career. and yes i know there are those that have the fobia and have managed to succeed, but i can count those with the fingers on my hand. well, if its meant to be... wish him luck all the way.

I've seen a lot of young musicians say the same thing and only a few didn't lose themselves to the fame machine. Alejandro definitely seems built for longterm success and humility.
