    I can`t understand what he`s saying in song, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

    Whatever, its such a gimmick now. They`ve done the same thing on the American and British versions. There`s always somebody with a sob story that everyone thinks is going to suck then they turn out to be awesome and everyone starts crying like idiots. Seems scripted to me.

    I may be alone in this, but why do hot asian women get even hotter when they cry? Disturbing, but true.

    B.S. - Crappy Italian diction. And take the reverb off the mic and then see what he sounds like.

    I`m a bit sceptical as to the authenticity here... I can buy a lot of the other stuff, but the reactions and some of his story just seems a bit off.

    What a beautiful soul. What a lovely voice. I don`t care if it`s a sob story. He`s got guts and this chap is a winner in life. Hope this audition helps him along the road. *Goes off to hug her boys*

    Regardless of what the other I-A-Bers think, I do believe his story. I think we are all so used to the common `sad story` on Britain`s Got Talent because it has unfortunately become common knowledge among contestants that the judges will not turn down someone with a `sad story` due to the fact that the audience would hate them for it. I often watch it and don`t believe the contestants stories, or that they are exaggerated. However, I think this example just proves how hard life is in other countries, and the typical `my mother hated me` sad story suddenly sounds very stupid. Am I right?

    He`s got a great voice, but was out of key a few times. He could probably hone his talent with a few lessons, though.

    Hard to believe a kid can make it on the streets selling gum, but I`ve never been to Korea. I always assumed street kids made money by begging, stealing, hooking, or drugs. Wonder if someone from his past will pop up with some wild stories if he makes it.

    F-u-c-k all the rest of you homeless people. We`re going to take this guy because he`s got a voice that can make us a lot of money.

    In reality, the instant stardom will probably jack with this kid`s head just as much, if not more, than anything else in his life.

    He said he wants to be normal. Sorry kid, a celebrity doesn`t lead a normal life.

    I don`t think there is a normal, perhaps an average lifestyle but everyone is slightly different to the next.

    Wow, that was good. Wonder if sang for his diner, if not, he`s missing out.
