    Nothing against this guy, but the road to success to make it on American Idol is to make the judges cry.

    If this didn't stir up some emotions in anyone watching, they are pretty much emotionally dead. I don't watch the show but there have been many winners that did not make anyone cry.

    If you don't watch the show, how would you know? And by the way, I wasn't referring to the winners, just the people who make the judges cry and get a ticket to be on American Idol.

    I won American Idol 3 years in a row and never made anyone cry. Oh wait.....

    Someone introduced me to something called YouTube. They show videos there. Some of the videos are of the winners.

    I'm glad someone introduced you to YouTube and you were bright enough to figure out YouTube has videos. So some of those videos you watched were of the winners of American Idol. That has nothing to do with my point.

    We know, your point is always something negative and rarely positive or helpful. Cheers until next time

    Yea, nice story and nice singing. the real talent is the songwriter - James Blunt. He has been writing great songs for a long time now.

    If the kid can write music and songs, he will be a real talent.
