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.

Fame can be a lot to handle but he'll do well because he's so smart and talented!!! He belongs on stage so me and my friends hope to see more of him in the future!!!

I know, right? I was so upset that Jermaine got cut. Mainly because Eben and Jermaine were the last ones up and so had they known about Jermaine's history, Eben probably would have made it through or at least to the wild cards. -_- Plus, he can't come back!

Ya lets just get rid of sweet talented singer for a fake that has a criminal history! I think Eben is the best and I saw through Jermaines act. Eben is so passionate and he's so talented! I LOVE YOU EBEN!!!

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.
