    I do not understand what the judges see in Burnell. It must be his Katrina story, because it can’t be his voice. Or are my ears deceiving me?

    Curtis reminds me of a Muppet, only more exaggerated. Do not care for him and his overblown, over sung, over hyped self. And his facial expressions are like those of a 70 year old woman! Hilarious!
