    Okay whoever thinks Laine is better doesn't understand how rare good songwriters actually are. This man is one of the best musicians that's been on this show and he wrote all of his songs, and they are fire! I've never seen that on this show. Laine is a great singer and performer but that doesn't mean anything if you can't write songs. Maybe Laine can, but he didn't show that on TV. Alejandro did and he completely won me over

    Thank you Alejandro, for such emotion manifesting from the lyrics, the dynamics of the melody is out of this Universe; its 'Cholo Love' embracing one's/my soul wow! Now it won't leave my mind; its hugging my mind to have me sing along. I've replayed it many times already.

    Thanks to this guy, SONGLAND by NBC was create. If AI doesn’t get it and continue with the karaoke format, they will loose a once in a lifetime opportunity and much more audience next season.
    Here is an idea ABC for the title of a new show “World OG’s SSW IDOL”
    Original singer-songwriter. Think about it, the winner is already made for a quick album and tour.

      kindaouttaluck Bullshit !!! He was trying to make eye contact with Uché and if you pay attention Alejandro tells Uché “ you’re amazing”... so stop making shit up. And watch the whole damn episode so you can see that when Lionel saved Uché, Uché began to cry and the only one comforting him was ALEJANDRO. Alejandro comforted and embraces Uché and he didn’t remove his arm from around Uché. Watch the whole thing before you try and damage someone’s character asshole!

      No, they haven't. As a matter of fact, the show's producers have restricted it up until now, but his songs are so good, I don't think they had a choice and his music is already known by so many people. It's not like he's playing music that nobody knows.

    He needs to just cut a quick album recording with the songs from his youtube and insta and we will all buy it. No need for idol and their record deals- im prob the only one hoping he doesn't win because then their exec's .....will be in charge of his recordings etc- second place is fine with me as long as he records an album. I say just do it now yourself alejandro- cheap equipment who cares- you'll outsell ....any winner from idol before the shows even over. 😉
