  2. I prefer Olly Murs, but McElderry's single is pretty delightful.

  3. Lord he's pretty and has the voice of an angel to match.

  4. To me it sounds like the chipmunks doing a pop song. He's a good singer but, to me, this single sounds like he inhaled helium.

  6. Love Joe McElderry, but don't like the song. It sounds too high-pitched - for a second it almost sounded like The Chipmunks.

    The B&W picture is dreamy, but you can't get a flash of his green eyes. He's actually better looking.

  12. God he's adorable! Watch the vlogs on his X-Factor channel.....they'll melt your heart.

  14. He seems like a nice kid but, I thought I was going to leave a negative comment about the music. Surprise surprise that song isn't half bad! I like it.

  15. Fantastic dance music. I see the invisible light. Wonderful song, perfect singer.

  16. @aleabeth, i'm old enuff to be his (ahem) older brother. good gawd he is precious. there comes a time when one celebrates a person strictly on beauty alone w/o sexuality muddying the waters. god personally reached down and chucked this kid on the chin and whispered, "you are the one." perhaps, not unlike when zeus played with ganymede on his knee.

  17. what a stunner. flat out.
    sweet guy--

  18. The song is a bit sappy.....which I would exspect from him. It sound good! very modern, it will do well,

  19. vollying back @ NIC

    Oh, I know I'm old enough to be his momma and I would probably embarrass the crap outta the boy [LOL-ask my nephew who's hittin' 30] with all my cheek pinchin', he's so adorable.
    :D and he sounds just 'bout as precious.

    I do hope the best for him.

  20. Um... that's just a sped-up version of the song "Ambitions" by "Donkeyboy".

  21. I really dig his sound! Thanks Andy for posting this. His vocal style is reminiscent of Joan Armatrading.

  22. @ Dan Um... that's called a "cover."

  23. While he is cute and has a pleasant voice, just How Many McSingers du Jour does the world need forced upon it?! Show after show, telling us who to watch/hear/buy...all in the name of Greed. This planet will be So glad when it is through with Man!

  24. Meh. I got sick of Micah about 5 minutes into his annoying career. I guess this is just slightly less annoying. Just.

  25. Joe finally gets to release his inaugural CD and let the world hear what he offers. I hope he enjoys a long career.
