  • wow yeah !!!

  • I've been hearing this dude since high school I've been waiting for him to make it

  • Top

  • He can sing

  • Such a humble spirit ❤❤

  • AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING!

  • He aint fat, just filled with pure talent

  • I'm so happy for this guy. He is going to the top. Seems like a gentle humble soul. Can't wait to hear him again.

  • This guy gives me chills

  • he won't win and he won't win because of his weight. American Idol is NOT about talent. American Idol is strictly a popularity contest. It's the reason why Jennifer Hudson came in 7th place in 2004 despite clearly being at as good as the winner that year Fantasia Barrino. Let this be a lesson to you in this world. The world rarely promotes people on talent, competence and merit alone. On what effin planet is Jennifer Hudson the 7th best singer? Hell, on what planet is Jasmin Trias a better singer than Jennifer Hudson? It is maddening to see mediocrity routinely get ahead in this country. We are no longer a meritocracy in this country, but a likatocracy with more people getting ahead on likability than merit. This man is clearly the best singer already in this competition, but mark my words, his weight will be held against him and he will NOT win. ***Oh, FYI, This is why "The Voice" was created, to make a show purely about talent & NOT looks and likability.

  • Idk why I love his version so damn much ... I felt so at peace when I heard it

  • I love this version better ❤️ @Willie Spence

  • I'm voting for him :)

  • Every now and then someone strolls into the audition that can sing better than the whole panel lol

  • it's about time he blows up he's been doing this since highschool

  • I love you Willie! Your voice seriously sends chills through me. Thank you so much for sharing your gift. I'm a better person every time I hear you sing.

  • Damn, did we just all go to church for a minute there?

  • My favorite

  • The Lord blessed him so graciously with that voice. The greatest male singer I've ever heard and the winner of American Idol in the biggest landslide in the history of the show. Grace Kinstler is incredible and would win it any other year this dude wasn't there. And then there's Murphy who the clueless judges couldn't figure out is a star

  • Luke Bryan said yes Immediately before the vote

  • His version kicked ass!!

  • He and his family deserve everything good that life has to offer. Voice sent from above

  • Willie , is one of best singers I've seem in a long time his voice is a gift, just a raw talent that's headed for stardom Wow!!!

  • That note at 1:40 gave me chillbumps.

  • I swear I could listen to this over and over again!!

  • The diamond man. So cool. I've ever wanted him to go audition. 🥺

  • 😳🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  • Angelic

  • Shit make a song w rod wave pls

  • GOAT!!!

  • I saw him the 1st time exactly 3 years ago. Hes so gifted! Greets from Germany ❤️

  • How can you possibly tathom disliking this?? Does it make it you feel good about your life to dislike this??? Honestly if I saw a person in real life who dislikes this..i would boo them..i would boo thier whole existence..Booo!!

  • I love this guy. I love his voice I’m hoping he wins American idol

  • “I’ll be singing diamonds by the way....” shits on EVERYONE. YAAASSSSSSS.

  • The MOST talented singer by far! He’ll win. I hope he can drop another 200 pounds & live healthy! YES I said it💯
