  1. Haynes is cute and has a pretty voice. I hope the ridiculous adulation he is getting doesn't keep him from getting some good training. His pitch was all over the place.

  2. seeing as how haynes (model and actor.... so no shrinking violet from publicity or fame) singing has never been publicized before, one wonders if seeing him sing is quite different than probably an overworked studio song with just a pic backing it up

    I will be impressed when they show him singing without lipsynching

  3. @Bob His pitch was all over the place? Do you know what you're talking about or have you watched too many seasons of American Idol?

  4. To my ears he was a little off key at times but that is what i liked. And usually if i hear this song on the talent shows i would turn it off.

  5. Colton has a really nice voice, but he kept changing what octave he was singing in. He probably hasn't had a lot of training, but that just means he could be truly great with some guidance.

  7. He does a surprisingly good job, certainly better than some actors who have been given singing roles. (I'm looking at you, Russell Crowe.)

    Brendan, what are you talking about when you say he keeps changing octaves? That's the way this arrangement is written. But I agree that with he has a really nice voice and would benefit greatly from more training.

  8. His singing wasn't terrible, but it certainly wasn't great. It sounded like one of those recordings you used to be able to make in a mall booth for five bucks.

    My biggest problem with this recording is that he sings the entire song in the same beige tone. There was not a wide enough range of light and shadow, which is especially important in an emotional song like this. He is obviously not comfortable singing in a studio, so his focus was on getting the notes right, rather than conveying the sentiment of the song.

    If I were grading, he'd get a solid "B."
