    It's interesting, when I first saw him I wanted him to cut his hair and only show his natural brown hair. But now when I look back at these I'm like "Aww he's cute with the blonde hair" pshhh. I'm just stupid lol

      Teprin S, If the hyphen is wrong, the text will not go through, nullifying the vote.

    • Jan Chesson
      Jan Chesson

      @Teprin S My phone just says 21523; there is no hyphen. At the beginning of the show Ryan Seacrest always gives instructions on how to vote. You should have verified with someone before you posted that. It looks like attempted sabotage. Not good.

    • Teprin S
      Teprin S

      Jan Chesson You are right according to AI website, but when I texted my vote for Alejandro this is how it shows up on my phone 215-23. Please check your phone text listing and let us know if it’s the same . Does the dash/hyphen “-“ make difference when texting?

    VOTING HAS CHANGED!!! Text 11 to 215-23 You get 10 votes, text 11 ten times Get Your Votes In! This season, for the first time, the winner of American Idol will be determined in a vote DURING THE LIVE 3-HOUR SEASON FINALE! Be sure to get those votes in early because one of the Top 3 will be going home during the show, based on the results up to that point. Voting will stay open throughout the 3-hour nationwide simulcast and closes during the last commercial break.

    Hey Katy Perry! First off, I fell in love with you way back when i rode up and down the coast of Cali... (Harley boy) lol (I lived right out side of Fresno). You are the only woman that I saw and knew inside my heart without a shadow of doubt that YOU were the only person on this earth that owned my heart and it was all from the first look, and first note i heard you sing with your guitar in your little favorite spot. (you know what place i am talking about I'm sure, lol) I tried to talk to you but it was a cray cray time and night and I guess i just didn't man up enough to walk thru all the dudes that were surrounding you... would of been an odd moment. So anyway, here we go full circle. I gotta tell all three of you judges that you earned back my respect for "American Idol" this season and that all three of you are very fortunate this year with all of the really super god gifted talent that walked into your lives... Believe me when i say that i was a total hater of American Idol when 5 years ago it seem soooo scripted and unprofessional... TOTALLY dissed a good friend and super talent of mine by the name of "Kristen O'Connor"... Gawd i was pissed. LOL So anyway, "The Voice" came to my rescue and showed me some wonderful talent and now here its flipped and The Voice let the actual Voice get away from them this year...(they sent home the talent that should of won the show in other words) so now they are in the shoes American Idol was in 5 years ago...Sorry to say, but, the voice talent this year can't touch a single contestant that you guys have this year!...and that i along with you and the rest of the world that sat and watched "Alejandro Aranda " nonchalantly walk in off the street and put "AWE" and "please hit rewind, because i gotta see that again"... into each of our lives. I am telling you Luke and Mr. Richie...YOU ARE CORRECT in every single thing you have said about Alejandro. He is the American Idol, I know there is some really awesome talent there but this guy is beyond and one of God's many blessings... He is proof that God is a lover of Music. I have been a musician since I was 7 years old. I love every genre' there is and I love keys and guitars, (anything with strings on it, is my air) But this guy is freaking a freak of nature and a musical genius and phenomenon! Hell, i spent 20 years in a studio and didn't even have a one hit single. out of a hundred songs written and compose and record by your truly, Jonathon A Daniels LOL (you can find me on UA-my and SoundCloud folks)......... Katy, I just gotta do this, because i don't want to go thru this life with out saying this to you. Probly my only chance huh? But yep, you probly guessed it... I love and adore you, Jonathon ( )

    He’s too talented for American Idol. He needs to get voted off so he can release his record, and not be shackled by this show anymore.

    EVERYONE ON THIS VIDEO! Set an alarm on your phone - ALEJANDRO NEEDS US TO VOTE FOR HIM. EVERY SUNDAY NIGHT you can vote up to 30 times for Alejandro! Just set an alarm for every Sunday at 10 pm and go give the HOMIE 30 votes (10 online, 10 text, & 10 on the APP). It takes tops a minute or two to do! DO IT FOR ALEJANDRO - HE DESERVES THIS!

    • JerryPops

      clytemnestra111 yes 8 pm Est or 5 pm pst! I was originally thinking voting wouldn’t open until the show ended when I posted this but then they made it during the show only!!! I will need to amend all of my comments!

    So sad that he never had anyone to tell him to “go for it”, but he did! It’s his passion and so clear it’s as natural to him as breathing to play and sing. He is creative and his covers improve the originals! NOW he has all of America telling him to “keep going for it” and truly he has already won! The views and comments are outstanding!! Everyone is drawn to him and desiring more and more of performances! A winner! This is just a formality...a winner of the competition and a winner of all of our hearts!

    Omg I effin love him and that ending ❤️
