    THIS Is the best you and Craig Burns could come up with?????? COME ON… I have non-equity clients who sing and act a song better than this. And are more physically appealing. And don’t look so stiff while performing.
    This is NOT Broadway or “star” caliber.

    @Jay Broadway, Ken and Craig picked the finalists; viewers picked the winner. Those of us who voted for Gabe did so based on familiarity with a broad selection of his work, not just one song.
    You make a valid point about his performance in “King of the World” being somewhat stiff; he’s in the process of switching from an operatic background to musical theatre and that requires some unlearning. However, this win was not a fluke; he’s a major rising talent. Gabe is currently a finalist in two other major online competitions including “Signature Idol” at Signature Theatre in DC. Check out more of his performances at http://www.theBestArts.com/gabriellopez/, especially “Unexpressed” and “Quiet.”
