Drew Ryniewicz Slows Down a U2 Classic

by at . Comments

Is Drew Ryniewicz already stuck in a rut?

The adorable 14-year old covered the classic U2 track "With or Without You" last night, keeping the tempo slow and delivering what sounded like another winning ballad.

But L.A. Reid said he's "pushing for more" from the young crooner, while also adding she might have the most "original" voice of all finalists. Nicole Scherzinger, similarly, said she was hoping the track would pick up.

Do you agree? Is Drew still competition for Melanie Amaro? Listen to her latest now:

Chillax people,its true Drew sings almost the same tune every week,coz that's what her genre is!!You can't deny she has a great voice and i think she's a Taylor Swift's clone!Yeah,Melanie has a great voice too,but she didn't sang rock last night,they're trying to hide the fact.For example,Stacy,that's not rock,so let her be herself.Anyways,Drew FTW!^^

Drew is amazing . She's original , she's talented she's got everything to win the X factor , but as a Huge fan , i really think Drew should step out of her shelf and pick up the tempo , she has nothing to worry about , cause she's got a HUGE fan base . Her fans , we're not gonna stop supporting her , we've got her back . Drew ftw ! #TeamDrew .

No, Melanie doesn't need to be like Drew because they are different artists and Melanie's talent stands on its own. I'm an admitted Melanie fan but I know that she needs to be a little more diverse if she wants to win; and the same can be said of Drew. If you ask me, Drew could learn a little humility because she came across as obnoxious when she was being critiqued. She has a lot of fans but there really is no need for the attitude.

I know Drew personally and she is AMAZING! A nice girl with a golden heart. If you ever get a chance to meet her, tell her she's awesome. She really is.

I like Drew better than anyone in the competition. She can sing any kind of songs and she can sing with such a beautiful voice that no one in the competition come close to. In most cases, I believe Simon controls which song she sings and this may be a strategy their part. They still have 7-8 more chances providing that Drew is assumed to go that far. They can peak at the last 3 performances to surprise everyone with her uniqueness in songs. Anyone who saw her sing during the group competition will know that she has that original sound in any music she sings and always liked her version over the original songs. She make it better. Whether she knows it or not, she has gift of delivering the original songs with her style that is unique and can't get enough of it. Listen to her singing during the group competition in Day 2 and respond. You will know what I am talking about. Go Drew!!!

@maryanne- so is bashing people all you know how to do? seriously stop whining about how everyone "sucks" id love to hear you sing & see if you compare to drew. shes my personal favorite but i agree with the judges that she needs to do a little something more. i dont get why everyone goes on about the contestants "singing the same type of songs" um- duh! thats what they sing! is astro supposed to sing country? no hes a rapper hes gonna rap! is drew supposed to sing heavy metal? no she sings ballads! anyway- drews voice is very unique but shes not living up to her potential.

Yes she is unique in a weird way. Dont get her singing at all. Boring and painful as if she has trouble getting the words out. Not sure what others find appealing about her singing.
