Right off the bat, it seems obvious to us this song is not going to carry Mathenee Treco to the Top 20 on American Idol 2013 tonight. If ever this was a wrong song choice, this is it. Mathenee is very animated, but his voice is all over the place and way too over-the-top.
 
American Idol judge Keith Urban says he loves his power and loves how much he wants to entertain, but he was maybe entertaining too much.
 
Nicki Minaj likes him, but thought the performance was “very cheesy and karaoke” to her.
 
Randy Jackson doesn’t like the song choice at all for his voice.
 
Mariah Carey thought Mathenee was very authentic, but the performance was weak.
 
As one might expect, Mathenee Treco was eliminated on American Idol 2013 in the final Vegas round.
