how did a man who sang this crap win american idol?
(start at 1:25ish)
now, check out Leona Lewis, the X Factor winner in england from a few years ago singing a song by the same band (Snow Patrol)… SHE IS A WINNER. We have 300,000,000 people in this country and Lee DeWyze is all we can come up with to battle Leona…we’re screwed.
there are so many crappy people on youtube trying to sing songs. there are so many decent people on youtube trying to sing songs. there are even a lot of pretty damned good people on youtube singing songs and some of them have even gotten record deals out of it. once in a while, there is some pure f*ing talent on youtube, and this kid from Yale is one of them. His voice is stupid good. So smooth. So so smooth.
He could easily win American Idol, but why win Idol when you can just get a deal without all the show and tell? Sign him. Now.

Leona Lewis won the Brittish version of American Idol and then she won our hearts with the incessantly overplayed Bleeding Love. Personally, I think her cover of Snow Patrol’s Run was one of the best covers of all time, and really just one of the best records of all time. But today we’re talking about her new single from her unreleased album. The tune is called Happy and it is again co-written with Ryan Tedder of One Republic. That guy sure knows how to write a fucking hit. Besides the obvious success of his band’s song Apologize, he penned Bleeding Love, Jordin Sparks’ Battlefield, Beyonce’s Halo, and Kelly Clarkson’s Already Gone just to name a few. Clearly the dude knows how to write a hit for the modern age diva and Happy is no exception. Check it out below and enjoy the tune you are about to hear overplayed to death on top 40 radio.
