    I wonder when the Backstreet Boys are going to get dropped. I feel bad for this Justin Guarini this guy could actually sing. I guess he didn’t have a strong enough single like Kelly Clarkson had. I believe that movie from Justin to Kelly got better promotion than his solo album. I did like that song condition of my heart that Brain McKnight wrote for him.

    I have the album because I won it at a radio station event and its not that bad. His voice is great but the songs that he was given were weak. Hopefully another record company will pick him up.

    That’s sad. I would rather hear him than this Barry Manilow sounding guy Clay!

    Everyone saw this one coming. His album fell off the Billboard chart almost as fast as Mariah’s Remix CD.

    I guess this proofs that Simon and Randy don’t know crap about music artist or finding talent.They used to praise Justin almost all the time!!LOL what now?

    He should have pretended to be good clean boring fake Christian like Closeted Clay. Then all the bible lovers would bought his albums. I didn’t like the guy but he is definitely many many times more talented than the people from the second American Idol, especially Aiken!

  8. weebongo says:

    Justin is almost as boring as Clay. That actually holds true for all the American Idols that made it to the final. Good thing for the judges or no one would watch.
