This kid is so talented. He’s not just singing a song, he’s pouring his soul into it. Regardless of the outcome of this season, he’s my winner.
Mine too ❤❤
Nutsa will be in the running 🇬🇪
He’s going to win for sure!
I am starting to think that American Idol may have actually found one of the best performers of the next 40 years. Truly spectacular
Well the question for him to stay relevant for the next 40 years is does he capable of making good music himself or not.
One of the most soothing artists I’ve heard in a while. It’s pretty amazing how he has so much power and emotion with the softest tone. I just love him.
He has a vocal texture that is captivating. He doesn’t have to do a single run, he doesn’t need any frills or bravado to add to his voice. His voice has a presence that you can’t buy. It just is
I try to watch other contestants and although they sound great, some of them sound so forced or like they’re doing a little too much, for me personally, that I’m uninterested and don’t watch till the end. But captivating is such an accurate word for Iam’s performance because I always find myself locked on to his performance in awe. He just makes it look so effortless, it’s just beautiful.
Couldn’t agree more
I was waiting for Iam’s showstopper this whole time! Such a pure voice he has. It makes me so happy to see that he was even more excited when he found out his buddies made it to the top 26 with him. What a guy!
You know there are others with more powerful and better vocals. But this guy sings in a a way you have to listen. You connect. You feel emotional. The show isn’t called American Singer it’s called American Idol. And this dude is an Idol. He reaches out to everyone.
@B Bodziakyeah maybe just more powerful but his vocals are perfect
Agree with what you’ve said except I don’t know if there are any with better vocals.
I couldn’t agree more he doesn’t just sing he reaches out and touches your soul and you can’t help but listen
AWESOME COMMENT BRUH! WELL SIAD!
He doesn’t sing lyrics, he feels them, he lives them, he goes to that place, with his dad, every time. That is why his eyes are always closed.
He’s not performing…he’s singing. Agreed.
He looks like Lil boy from the movie shallow hal
Julio Iglesias sings all the way to his feet, his hole body and eyes closed
Nope, he’s clearly singing
Just give this man the American Idol title already. He is one of my favorites throughout any season. Every performance is impeccable
The depth is of emotions he pours into every song is absolutely unreal. He can make you feel some crazy way with every lyric.
Side note… this year sucks in that there are so many amazing singers!
This guy has to be the winner! His voice has EVERY quality you could want! Incredible tone, control, inflection and the ability to softly sing with so much emotion but also belt it out when he wants too! His immense talent alone makes him the winner to me but then he also is just such a damn good big hearted guy! I wish him all the success in the world and I’ll support him any way I can! 👍🏽
