As long as he gets the votes, he has all the right to still be on the competition. Are the best vocalists the only ones who are successful? Just please look at the charts and tell me. K, bye.

Laz…a/k/a…Fez…Is a cute kid….and sure I feel sorry for him, and for awhile I was kind of supporting him…but, but, but…YO Dawg, the dude CANNOT carry a tune in a sack!! He’s not pleasant to listen to…AT ALL! Those of you that are still voting for him need hearing aids or something…This is a TALENT competition…the ones that can truly sing, compose, and are the WHOLE PACKAGE deal…and that is NOT Laz!!!! Come on now….do the right thing….vote for TALENT!!!!!!!

Shanks you need new batteries for your hearing aid if you think he sounds like an angel! Why does he deserve to win, he is not the best singer, far from it? How is he a genius, because he can lie about having to change his song the night before when Jimmy said he went over the song 5 days before ? He’s a poor karaoke singer at best!

Wow…that’s certainly prove that people are rude here. You think he sang crap, not everyone think the way that you think. I’m sorry, but it is up to America to choose It’s not up to you. I’m not gathering a pity party for Lazaro and his votes were never based on sympathy or pity ever since the beginning. You just hates him that’s all I can see. And I’m not even in America. But if you say he is crap then just blame on the judges, they are the ones who putted him through. Your language below just reflect how you are as a person calling somebody idiot. Crazy!

Duane is America, he is a judge!!!! It’s no longer in the hands of the four people who where at one time judges. Maybe the one time judges should stop making coments about his singing and people would stop thinking he’s being bullied, then they might actually listen to his singing and realize how poor it is. We saw the same phenomena on the X Factor with CeCe, as soon as the judges stopped criticising her she went home. Lazaro needs to go, deserving people are going home.

Kirsty anyone with good hearing thinks the way I do! I don’t hate him I actually felt sorry for the guy, I hate the fact that people which have a lot more talent and can actually sing are going home before he is ! He will never make it in the industry and that’s a fact, once this fad is over he will be back to scooping ice cream for a living!

Duane, he may not go back to scooping ice cream buddy but he sure as heck should have been voted of by now. The stutter is is his saving grace which if he wanted to, he could be fixed very easily either by hypnosis or better still by someone like Tony Robbins.

I don’t think they are being rude, I am a man of music and it is deeply rooted in me. When I close my eyes I don’t see the person I hear the voice. Lazaro has a decent voice but people are not voting for his singing, they are voting because of his condition. If he did not have that condition they would have not voted for him by now. Lets just be truthful about the situation. Either we are going to vote for pure skills or we are going to vote for condition.

Lazaro is an average singer and that’s being kind, better than Candice or Amber, i don’t think so! He also lied about changing his song a couple weeks back. He’s a joke and should have gone weeks ago! Stuttering fool and dishonest why not vote for the best singers ! Its a singing show, not a pitty party! People sticking up for him are fools, they can’t seriously think he’s a good singer, do they really think he deserves to be in the top three, let alone still on the show? Just cause he’s had a hard life doesn’t mean he should do well on a singing show!

Unfortunately all shows that allow a public vote are a pity party. The public doesn’t see it as creating an artist; they see it as charity.
Generally on American Idol, however, pity doesn’t get people into the top 2. On X Factor though, pity won the show.

Since u r stating yours I’m stating mine….”Better than Candice or Amber” no duh! But that is your opinion. People who likes Lazaro & voted for him also has theirs own opinion that u cannot change!! I know he is not all that in the voice department but he is not all that bad either! He change his song cuz Jimmy made him uncertain about his choice!! Stuttering fool? He is the underdog people will vote to see the underdog succeed!! He stated that he will be happy to make it to the top 5 cuz he wants to go to Disney World…maybe that is why people are voting? Just for that i will vote for him due to your comment on slamming him!!~~ It takes alot of courage to perform in front of an audience. Performers/Stars like Andrea Bocelli, Glenn Gould, Ian Holm, Rod Stewart, Carly Simon, Laurence Olivier, Barbra Streisand. But i believe if he was in a studio recording he will do fine…just for that i would buy his CD!!

He change his song cuz Jimmy made him uncertain about his choice!! HE NEVER CHANGED HIS SONG, HE LIED ABOUT CHANGING HIS SONG AS JIMMY STATED. THEY PICK THERE OWN SONGS BUT HE ALSO COMPLAINED ABOUT NOT SINGING SONGS THAT HE LOVES? STRANGE WHEN THEY CHOOSE THEIR OWN SONGS? MORE EXCUSES !

Performers/Stars like Andrea Bocelli, Glenn Gould, Ian Holm, Rod Stewart, Carly Simon, Laurence Olivier, Barbra Streisand. ALL THESE PEOPLE CAN SING.

just for that i would buy his CD!! HE WILL NEVER MAKE ONE, AND IF HE DOES AND YOU BUY IT, I WILL LAUGH AS IT WILL BE YOU THAT IS WASTING YOUR MONEY !

I believe that Lazaro is very inspiring, but what if he wins? I just hope that all those people who continue to vote for him support him 100%. He is very fragile and if he isnt as successful then those “supporters” will cause more damage than good.

People are voting for Lazaro because they feel sorry for him.. that is NOT what htis competition is about .. it is about finding the best SINGERS… AI blew it by letting the #10 guy go off.. He is 100 times better than Lazaro.. So was Burnell ! They should let everyone vote ONCE time ranking from 1 to 10 and thats it .. 50 votes is ridiculous

The sources of multiple voting may cause the most talented vocalist to go home. Lazaro is a cute kid who can sing. He is not showing Idol viewers that he is as good as Candice or Kree. He should be voted off.
The girls are jammin’! It is evident. The voting has always dominated
the talent. There are too many ways to multi-cast your votes. Who saw Kurtis going home so quickly? You will have to join the process
until the format changes.

If you don’t like him, you can just keep to yourself. How disrespectful to judge Lazaro. He did nothing wrong to anybody. He just want to pursue his dream. Why people kept bullying him? You guys should back off and leave him alone. These negative comments just reflect how you are as a person. WIth no love, encouragement and just hatred. No wonder the world is not getting any better, there’s no peace at all. It’s not u to say he is to leave or not, it’s up to everyone in America. And it was the judges who had putted him in. Everyone has their definition of favourites and if you guys don’t like the outcome every week, then just ask AI to change the rule, let judge of AI to choose the best singer then don’t say anything then if that’s the case. Just rude that’s all I can say!!

You don’t really have a concept of what the voting process is do you? Since the people that wrote their comments are the judges, they have every right to judge poor little Lazero, the sympathy hoer.

I definitely agree with Brian he is a sympathy whore, and on top of that if he where to win he wouldn’t be able to fulfill his obligations later on because of his speech impediment. Oh.. and while I’m at it, his pants are way to tight, my god, I didn’t know a guy could have a camel toe. Just sayin.

He’s talented but not enough to be top 3. These people are right. Its a singing competition and the judging should be honest. It shouldn’t be based on how sad his story is. Is his story sad? Yes. Has he overcome a lot to fulfill his dream? Yes. But everyone on the show has a story and has overcome obstacles to fulfill their dreams. However, their life story has nothing to do with their talent. Many talented people have gone home because he’s been playing the sympathy card with all his crying and melodrama.
There have been telltale signs about his real personality when he’s gotten cocky with the judges a few times about their negative feedback. That’s not the kind of person I want winning American Idol.

Why be so upset? The votes are out of the judges control and have been for a while. Whoever wins will be the choice of the majority of voters. Relax! It is just a tv show. I personally hope Lazaro makes it to the top 5.

Oh my gosh…I hate the author of this article so damn much! And don’t you dare delete this comment! If I come here and don’t find it, it obviously shows you are not open to criticism, and that’s AWFUL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am a fan of Lazaro. I think he has an inspirational story and I’ve enjoyed watching him. But he needs to be voted off. I really think the competition is way above his talent level.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Filthy hypocrite! Why the hell would you say you’re a goddamn “fan” of Lazaro and then say he needs to be voted off? You give the word “FAN” a terrible name! And if you weren’t too DRUNK to remember, Jimmy said Burnell’s performance was also terrible. Fine, maybe not the worst, but at least Angie wasn’t the one leaving yesterday! Stupid!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Plus, he has forgotten the lyrics twice. Why isn’t he picking songs he knows?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Are you an idiot? HE WASN’T BORN AND RAISED IN AMERICA, MRS. I-KNOW-EVERYTHING!
He doesn’t know American music as well as we do! He doesn’t KNOW many songs in English, let alone rocknroll songs or Beatles music! Hell, give him a damn chance!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Although I like him and his story, he is not the best singer. By far. I’m sure he will be successful in life. But he does not belong in the top six singers in the entire country.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Finally. The first sensible thing you said.

Omg! Take it easy. Dont have a heart attack over this article. The author is entitled and majority agree. Lazaro needs to go home. He still needs to work on himself and not feel insulted when receiving feedback. Stop making excuses too. Man up because its going to get harder. And producer and others will not put up with his boo hooing. That performance may have not been Burnell’s greatest but it was still 10 times better than all Lazaro’s performance put together. And btw, lazaro moved to Florida from cuba when he was 10 years old. That’s plenty time to adapt.

Lazaro should have gone home? Why? Did he rig the votes? If you got people to vote for you to stay, that means you deserve to be still in the competition. Anyone who has watched American Idol as long as I have, knows that the best singers don’t win this competition. Just look at the past 5 winners. If you can’t accept that this is popularity contest, stop complaining and stop watching the show. Just accept it as an entertainment show and just have fun watching it.

Even the worst singers on the Voice auditions are better than what AI has to offer this year. Let alone, the voters keep Lazaro? Common, this has never been about musical quality competition, but this is going to be the axe for AI. It has lost all credibility and poor Jimmy Iovine… he must really have to keep his distance from the judges right about now. It is their fault for coddling such a meat grinder from the beginning. I would have rather seen Charlie boy, at least he tried.

it seems like the fix is in on so many levels this year.

Standards and practices anyone? Please?

This the very reason if you don’t vote they will alwayskeep the worst singer and by far Lazaro is the worst. I stop watch Amerian Idol years ago, they took all the hope out of watching the show. I wish it go off the air it has went past reality tv. However I do watch SIMON, American Idol went out of the door when SIMON left.

I totally agree. This may be my last year to watch Idol. Maybe it’s time to switch to the Voice. If Simon was still a judge, Lazaro’s arrogant butt would be long gone because Simon would crucify him and the votes would follow.
