    Hrm. Pretty good. Great range, but he still does`nt hold a candle to Freddy. I could see him in a tribute band but..I just dont see the "Hes as good as Freddy" that everyone seems to be touting about this guy. Freddy was special. There will never be another like him, only imitations.

    Still no feeling behind his singing. Technically it is very good, and amazingly close to Freddy, but he just has no PASSION. It is like photocopying the Mona Lisa.

    sure, that`s pretty good, but until he grows a moustache and some chest hair, and prances around the stage with nothing but a tank top and a pair of white short shorts... he can never be compared to mercury.

    His audtion was done in his house, relaxed, comfortable, with no pressure. He was just a regular Joe doing something on a lark. Then, all of a sudden, the video goes viral, he`s being called for interviews, appearances, and, next he`s having to sing on national TV?! Yeah, he`s gonna be a bit nervous, you freakin` haters. Damn. Look at his audition video and keep acting like he can`t sing or that you could do better. drat, you guys would criticize a kitten batting yarn for not doing it with enough passion! Here`s his audition video--don`t hate unless you could do better (clicky

    I can`t explain my lack of interest in this guy, I just don`t find his skill impressive, despite how hard it may be to sound almost like Freddie.

    He has a good voice, but people are trying to make it seem as if he were the greatest person to ever cover Queen/others... Cover bands are good if you want Motley Crue at your wedding reception without the sex and drugs, cover singers are below them (Get these guys for your wedding)

    I agree with Batmanners. This guys is a skilled Kareoke singer. If he put effort to create something I`d have a lot more respect for him. As is, he`s just put a lot of energy into mimicry.

    Yes norgale, Freddie was also flattered to be replaced by his favorite singer ever, Paul Rodgers. Being a fan of an unique guy like George Michael, he`d surely appreciate homage from an original like Martel too.

    SmagBoy1, his audition was submitted the first few days of the Tribute Band talent contest. I think he has every right to present himself in whatever way he chooses. If by conscious choice he auditioned to step in for a guy known for dramatic flair, big personality, and loved to go "big" and be his "unusual" self at every chance, then it`s quite fair to compare Martel to Mercury to see how they stack up to each other. A talent search in public naturally gets public opinion about contestant and the original he "emulates". Ideally the contest can be both a love fest for Marc (held in check), and an appreciation for what made Freddie unique. It`s useless to sell Marc at detriment of Freddie, or to require Marc`s audience to sing as well as hi

    OK, he sounds like Freddy without any production magic. I think the thing so many people found lacking is, well, the charisma. I`d like to hear him sing something Freddy never did,,,see what he`s got to give on his own behalf. Know what I mean?

    Similar timbre. Main difference is his natural voice is a bit lower than freddy`s so he strains earlier and sings the lower notes fuller.

    In other thoughts, good job on being able to point those things out EthanCoker. You must have been had professional training in the art of singing.
