He did a fine job on "got to get you into my life" ... and I wonder if that wasn't the song he chose and he had to change because they wanted it for the boys group sing
I think Jimmy ought to apologize to him publicly ... I really do..
hey, I picked another song and they handed me this one last night. He was trying to say more but because he takes longer Ryan had to wrap it up. Lazaro was saying the song change was due to some complication. So ... was the song Lazaro originally chose one that someone else wanted, or that production wanted? He told Ryan on the results show that the lesson he learned was "not to change". So, someone asking Lazaro if he's "sure" he wants to sing a song ... may have encouraged him to choose another ... or may he kindly gave the song he wanted to someone else.
I just seemed to me that "they" Jimmy especially, went out of their way to exacerbate Lazaro's problems and it is a crummy way for adults to act. AND, Jimmy obviously prides himself on his ability to be Iovine the terrible. What ? Is he trying to "fire" Lazoro too?
My apologies ... because of your status in the prediction game you are obviously more knowledgeable than I ... (congrats by the way)... but I AM one of the few who put Amber in the Bottom 3 mix
