Aaron Marcellus on American Idol: The Whole Package?!?

by at . Comments

Look, we get why the American Idol judges said nice things about Eben Franckewitz last night, despite his mess of a performance. The guy is 15 years old and adorable.

But is there a reason Randy Jackson told Aaron Marcellus he demonstrated "beautiful vocals?" Or Steven Tyler went as far as to say this contestant is "the whole package?"

Watching the hopeful cover the Jackson 5's "Never Can Say Goodbye," we simply saw a generic act with a better-than-average voice and not much personality. It's hard to even imagine Marcellus surviving Thursday's cut, when the top 24 become the top 12.

Are we being overly harsh? Watch Aaron in action now and decide for yourself:
