    This is way better than the original, oops. The "rap" part is not really AA's way & one can hear that but in all other aspects, this is a buyable version for someone with no interest in top 40 pop. Alejandro is mind-blowing!

                  Professional keyboard artist/producer Cori Jacobs gives him high praise as he breaks down the chord arrangements by Alejandro. Search this on YouTube to check it out "cori jacobs on alejandro aranda"

                    alejandro.he didn’t win, Perry’s “karaoke” comment inadvertently brought up a possible reason he didn’t bring home the victory.

                                  Listening to this now, I believe he has made the song more singable. He added a great melody to it. 😲

                                      I feel like Passionfruit would have been a better fit for him and he would have done that cover so much better than one dance!

                                          Very repetitious and pitchy. This is not his forte. Sad to see them trying to make him into something he’s not. What he needs is a budget and a good producer and just let him create his own thing.

                                            Aranda at 2:39... disappointed for being called a dj while having performed a live-act with keys, drumpad, vocals and effects
                                            Surprisingly, Katy fixing it at 3:24 :)

                                                        Good thing he has a supportive fan-base, otherwise this performance alone could've easily sent him home.

Don’t understand the hate for this performance, literally can’t listen to the original version of this song anymore because this is so much better.
