ETA: I can't believe Rick Springfield is 61!! He still looks fab :P How old am I again?
I knew he would knock the studio version out of the ballpark. When your voice is that recognizable you have a big jump on the sound-alike divas.
I'm sorry but he sounds like what I imagine a chipmunk would sound like singing. I listened to about 5 bars of his I-tunes song... I find him unbearable.
I have a love/hate relationship with this guy.
Why is he picking these songs? Paul, you could have been so good. I have no idea why he is still on the show. He's been horrible. I guess all the guys are going to make it far though.
I wouldn't call it love/hate, but I do have mixed emotions about him. I love his quirkiness, but vocally he is not always the best.
I'm not into his weird quirks, his dancing, or his voice at all :down
Without the herky, jerky movements, he does fit nicely into the Alt. genre. His voice is unique to Idol as far as I remember and it fits in with his genre. I think his performance (voice/movement) would be better appreciated if he found himself a stool and sat.
