    WOW! Not a big fan of remakes, but if ever a song needed to be re-released, it's Andrew's version for sure!
    Only if Paula doesn't profit from it in any way? Actually, I think she owes me money for emotional distress from having to listen to it on the radio a couple of decades back!

    But I would willingly and gladly listen to Andrew's version again. Hope he advances FAR in this competition.

    I like his version better than the original.

    I did like the way he changed the song and made it his own the judges was really impressed with that plus he got charm and a humble quality about him that they couldnt help but pass him through to the Top 24 i hope he makes it far cause he got the vocals and plus the instrunment helps him alot we just got to vote to keep him going through to the Top 12 at least

    He didn't arrange that, it's been out there for years. This was posted on YouTube 3 years ago. Sound familiar?

    Unk, I really thought I had heard that arrangement before. I am not sure if I heard it on Youtube or not , but I have heard it before. Did Andrew actually say he arranged it? Just curious.

    Keep in mind that nothing is more sliced and diced in the editing room than Hollywood week. But as far as the way the event unspooled on TV, all we saw was Andrew playing (most of) the song. It was all of us watching it that said it was so original.

    So, if you thought it was his idea, subtract a few points from his score.

    I'm always impressed when contestants have the talent to come up with an original arrangement (a la Kris Allen), but he found a song that fit him and that he performed well and was able to impress, and that in itself is "genius." Much like David Cook's performance of the slow arrangement of Michael Jackson's "Billy Jean" - not original, but very fitting.

    No subtracting points for me. I just wondered about Andrew because I never heard him actually claim it as his own and I didn't think he did, but I miss things sometimes. I just assumed it was not original because I knew I had heard it before. I know David Cook (who I LOVE) got flack for the whole Billie Jean thing, but he never claimed it was his original arrangement either.

    I agree with everything you have said here.

    Las Vegas has installed him as the favorite this year.

    I don't think he tried to pull it off as his own but it sure was presented that way on the show with the judges comments and all.
