    Not bad at all I must say.

    Not bad? That was all bad. I have a major psychotic hatred for American idol, and now can officially add Swedish idol to my televised karaoke psychosis.

    i didn't like it. It was pretty par for the course for American Idol. It's cool that he picked the song and he hit the notes but the way he sang it was as gay as his look. He strikes me as a reject from a Disney teeney bop show. There are better singers with more soul and more individuality in casinos, riverboats and cruise ships all over the country.

    edit: i went ahead and watched him singing Always by Bon Jovi. Equally lame but one thing: there's a part in the song where Jon Bon sings, "well there ain't no luck in these loaded dice, but baby if we give it just one more try we can pack up our old dreams and our old lies and find a place where the sun still shines." (great great line by the way) Well, for some reason, this guy sang "well, DADDY if we give it just one more try..." He meant to because it had that over enunciation that seems to be so common with these American Idol singers so my question is this: Daddy?

    I really want to see someone try DREAMS that song is one that may only be able to be sung by Sammy. If anyone has ever tried it while driving or whatever, tell me your throat didn't hurt after and I'd say you were lying.

    I love Van Hagar but if this was the original version i never would have been a fan of the song.
    That's way too cheesy!
    I gotta listen to the original now just to clean my ears!
