Eben Franckewitz: A Mess on Adele

by at . Comments

Oh, how we miss Simon Cowell. He would have torn into Eben Franckewitz last night.

Not that we want to see a 15-year old cry on stage, but let's be honest: this Justin Bieber lookalike is not ready for primetime, and certainly not ready to try his voice on an Adele single.

But that's exactly what Eben attempted, covering "Set Fire to Rain" and simply failing to hit any of the proper notes, while looking overwhelmed on such a grand stage.

No, Randy Jackson, Franckewitz did not "collect himself like a pro," which is understandable: he's not a pro. He's only 15. And he may have a bright future in the business, but he doesn't on season 11 of American Idol.

The rules definetly have to get changed so Eben can return! But with his talent I'm sure he's already got managers knocking on his door! I hope he chooses the best manager because sometimes they can scam people. All I know is I'm buying all his albums and going to his concerts. Can hardly wait!!!

they need 2 change the rules so Eben can come back. He is an amazing singer and performer and deserves a second chance.

This was a fantastic beginning to Eben's career as a singer! Very impressive!

The performance was really good! I can't figure out why this journalist said it wasn't. I was quite impressed with his ending and his charisma on stage. You've got to remember this is his first time in front of a live audience and he's only 15. He was fantastic! I hope to see more of this kid!

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
