    Maybe he should’ve lost weight naturally instead of taking the easy way out. All these unnecessary surgeries and then the sob stories for something that could’ve been avoided are annoying.

    Too many sappy stories before the audition, but this one was a moving one. There were some good things in his vocal, but he should lose the exaggerated, sloppy runs.
