  • i just hope, honestly speaking, that he's able to back off a tiny bit on how nasally he can let his voice get. maybe it was because of the range of the song, but i knew when he was stressing his voice almost beyond its limits. just some constructive criticism for a great performance. i was brought to tears, but wanted to offer my opinion
