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.

Really? whoever thr author of this is.. please just shut your mouth. Eben is and ALWAYS will be my American Idol. Just because hes nervous, doesnt mean he cant sing because i bet you arent far to being better than him. Give him props because he made it to the top twenty four and is probably the youngest in the competition right now. TEAM EBEN BRING HIM TO THE TOP AND SHOW THIS PERSON WRONG! (:

If Bailee Brown was deemed 'too young' and had a voice that supposedly 'needed work' five years ago and didn't even crack the top 24 back then, then the same surely should be said about Eben. He seems like a good, solid kid, someone you wouldn't mind your own kid hanging out with, but strong Idol material he is not, at least not this year. They should have passed on him and encouraged him to keep practicing and come back in a year, two or three. I can't wait for the ladies to sing tonight. The talent is deeper in that bunch, in my opinion.

I will never say Eben did bad. Eben is and always will be my American Idol. Give the kid a second chance, he was probably just overwhelmed and nervous. Understandable for someone so young. Give him another chance America!!

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.

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.
