    Another faggo that can’t sing. Really, JJ.

  • serena

    really @californialand? Well since we’re throwing out pointless stereotypes and insults, i might as well add “Another dumb american” just for you…

  • maddy k

    I love his voice :) ‘Stay’ is such a beautiful song!

  • Rima

    Beautiful. If he and Adele team up the world is gonna explode. Lol

  • Amy

    Beautiful version! Well done, sir!

  • Aoedele

    His voice is amazing no doubt and when you’re covering an iconic song that was huge hit by a star like Whitney, you have to make it your own. Which he did, but he basically sings every song the same breathy way, which after a while might not be good for a lasting career.

  • Aoedele

    @CALIFORNIALAND: You’re sad, I feel sorry for you.

  • jonah

    @californialand has some unresolved issues i think :-/ if you don’t appreciate his voice then don’t make a derogatory comment about his sexuality. and @serena is right. Unfortunately idiots like this just add to the American Idiot image

  • Emmie

    He’s got a great voice and great SOUL. Hope he finds love soon, he seems sweet

  • THE AMERICAN SOLUTION

    So, the faggoes troll websites to slur America but think that “only” America is the evil and vile bastion of heterosexuality. I would rather live with my heterosexuality than be forced by a long forsaken autocratic government empire to resort to life altering homosexual actions. This is a genius to which you slaves of autocracy could never concur.

  • The Way Of The World

    @THE AMERICAN SOLUTION: Serena, Aoedele, jonah and the whole royal troll brigade of fraudulent faggoes here troll all the media sites, THE AMERICAN SOLUTION. They want America to “have issues” with their faggo island so they can turn us all into bad ripoff faggo singers. Too bad for these little faggo losers that they’ve already sealed their faggo idiot nature for all the real world to see, peruse and ponder. Dumb, but expected.

    @jonah: What issues would CALIFORNIALAND have, britshit. I doubt they are the very real unresolved issues of nature experienced by your pathetic little island dictatorship. I’d be reviewing your own issues periodically, if I were you. Fortunately, I’m not you.

    Well, it’s certainly nice to hear a talented singer for once! He’s got a good voice, that’s for sure. Doing a Whitney song justice is no small feat! It’s just so hard to hear this song sung at this slow tempo when I’m use to a faster one. Anyway, I wish this dude much success.

  • unreal

    that was really really sweet, and I love it! It almost felt like a true tribute to her, slowing it down… Beautiful.
