I'm sorry but no one can touch the original version and I hate it when people ruin a ff song (it's better then the pretender version guy thing though)
I should realy stop listening to covers I just can't stand them, it isn't the fault of the artists ... This guy for example has a great voice

Okay, I used to watch American Idol but it got lame (well actually, it was always kinda lame) but I have refrained from checking out the X-Factor show, and NOW I know that was a good decision.

I love The Pretender because it makes me feel angry (but in a good way) and this version is way too damn happy.

Karaoke contest tv shows are worse than terrorism. Please stop watching them, world.

Oh and you gotta give it up to that guy saying "You could go months as a musician without making any money"

Months? Try years. I have a lot of musician friends in bands who have been doing it for a very very long time. And right now, I can think of like maybe 4 of them who have been able to actually sustain themselves solely off music for any substantial length of time.

The worst part is he's not even particularly captivating. I'd probably want to hear something that suits his range/style before I wrote him off, but for "The Pretender" he just sounds like someone who had to have the key of the song dramatically changed to fit his range and he still wasn't even that good.

Ugh, I hate that this shit is now like the fast track way to a music career and I really really hate that people legitimize it and don't just call it what it is: A televised karaoke contest.

It's a lame shortcut that's polluting what's left of the music industry and still seems to value flash over substance.

That wasn't the least bit impressive.
If he was playing guitar and looking cool too, then maybe.

And, yeah, he totally fucked up the vocals.

I thought it was bad.

Very Daughtry/Creed-like.
