How many times have I seen this and listened and still brings me to tears. Alejandro is so much more than a pop star he is a troubadour, a poet that puts verse to music.

Alejandro you are a true artist. Since I saw your first performance on You Tube I’m a fan ❤️ your voice is simply amazing 😉

This has always been on of my fav songs since it came out. Didn't think I could like the song better. Then I herd this. Y didn't this guy win? Maybe even takes down jimmy as the GOAT? IDK?

Hahahahahahaha i KNEW Alejandro song was gonna pop up sometime. I was singing it in my head everytime i looked at his wonderful face

He doesn’t have an amazing range or overpowering voice, but the melodic way he sings is something else. He sounds like he’s auto tuned in the best possible way and it’s just him. He really does have a beautiful tone.

Sya ung lalaking mukha plng,parang hnd sya mhirap mahalin, simple,ma appeal,n silent type but deep n side may ibubuga🤣.. Lalo na pag nag simula n syang tumogtug NG gitara,it's so amazing 😍 d aq mka move on sa mga song nya lol🤣😂

dude you really should make a studio version of this song is so good like the best cover of yellow I've ever heard

I don't fucking care for others he is a great musician and not winning American Idol is just a small thing for him.🤘

This kid always makes me think about how many people never take their shot, never follow their dreams, and keep their talent buried within while living paycheck to paycheck… ❤️ Alejandro

I've watched from 1:07 to the 15 seconds that proceed atleast 100 times, so damn beautiful that part. ughhhh

Look at the stars

Look how they shine for you

And everything you do

Yeah, they were all yellow

I came along

I wrote a song for you

And all the things you do

And it was called "Yellow"

So then I took my turn

Oh what a thing to have done

And it was all yellow

Your skin

Oh yeah your skin and bones

Turn into something beautiful

Do you know

You know I love you so

You know I love you so

I swam across

I jumped across for you

Oh what a thing to do

'Cause you were all yellow

I drew a line

I drew a line for you

Oh what a thing to do

And it was all yellow

Your skin

Oh yeah your skin and bones

Turn into something beautiful

Do you know

For you I'd bleed myself dry

For you I'd bleed myself dry

It's true

Look how they shine for you

Look how they shine for you

Look how they shine for

Look how they shine for you

Look how they shine for you

Look how they shine

Look at the stars

Look how they shine for you

And all the things that you do

Anyone who remembers Benny off Crossroads will know who this guy reminds me of- and that’s where the similarity ends. This dude can sing, and what a musician. Amazing.

This is incredible!! Cant stop listening to it and his over covers. Hes gunna be a huge star!! One of my favourite songs as well 💙

Thank you from all of your fans for having the courage to Audition in the 1st place. Your amazing brother! Much success to you " HOMIE!"👍👍👍👍

Lets put bose speakers in military vehicles instead of shells. What a wonderful way to bring us all together. Thank you for sharing your beautiful interpretation of music💚

I mean the guy is amazing,but the reaction of the judges is too much….u cannot side that much to someone…they are behaving like kids with the way they react..they are overreacting…chill guys really…u ruined the show by that behaviour

Is it just me or Alejandro's live version is anytime better than Coldplay? I mean don't get me wrong, Coldplay's songs are amazing as always but this one, Alejandro nailed it big time!! So good homie!!

Guitarist: I wanna play…
Drummer: I really wanna play too….maybe I can tap really softly…
Bass guitarist: Is it my turn yet? Any minute now….
Backup vocalist: He don't need us….we gonna be out of a job…

Ok, can ANYONE figure out how he’s playing this and post a tab or chords or something?! I would love to learn his version!

great performance, but why did the editor include that weird cut of that guy in the black hat looking frantically for his beer or whatever. so annoying.
