Alejandro entered the audition round of the 17th season of American Idol with a bang. He performed the song, Out Loud, which was his original song. The song, which is already a Spotify chartbuster, is about his experiences growing up. He played it on a guitar and explained the song to be about his younger times when he didn’t speak the truth.
Also, Alejandro also played his other original, Cholo Love. This time, he played it on piano, leaving the judges stunned. Without a doubt, all three of the judges passed him amazing comments and welcomed him to the show with the Golden ticket to Hollywood.
Further, Alejandro performed Justin Bieber’s Sorry added by his final solo performance on his original song called Ten Years, in the Hollywood round. Again, in the Hawaii round, Alejandro amazed the judges with his performance in Coldplay’s Yellow, which got him the ticket to semi-finals.
For the position of Top 20 finalist, he performed Post Malone’s I Fall Apart, and Ben Harper’s There is a light. For the duet, he was joined by Ben Harper himself to perform The Blind Boys of Alabama.
