I thought all three guys were terrible in that group song. I, personally, felt that there was something very off through the whole thing and it involved all three guys. They were jointly and individually awful.
Also, it was obvious that lyrics had been forgotten and when he got to Lazaro that is what was confirmed....I heard the word "I" not "we" and I actually watched it again this morning.....that doesn't mean I'm right...it may mean I wasn't listening well. I don't see his admitting that he forgot the lyrics as making an excuse...it's owning his failure in this case. He obviously does struggle in this area, but I refuse to jump on the band wagon of bashing him for this issue. This is a kid who obviously has struggled all his life with the speech issue, and it just may be that those struggles were a bit broader than that based on his struggles with learning songs. It's unfortunate that he is struggling in this area and I do think he was the worst for the past two weeks and probably should go home. I just can't help but care about this kid who already seems to struggle with self-esteem. While I do think his time has come, I don't want it to be a mean nasty exit.
Burnell, if indeed he was mocking Laz, needs to get over himself and he owes Laz an apology! That is cruel and shows a very nasty streak!!
