His name is Piet Arion. He's an Austrian teenager. Listen to him sing "I Dreamed a Dream":

I'm not saying it's good or it's bad--but promise me you'll listen through to the astonishing end.

Why wouldn't you? He's fantastic!

He is great but I think he autotuned his voice a bit.

He sings the wrong melody in the 2nd verse and he does go up in the 4th verse, but he sounds like he's struggling with the notes there. In the end he goes much higher without any trouble?

I love the melody changes at the end though! Well done.

It needed a smoke machine, some purple lights and mirrors and it would have been an 80's music video. I made it to 1:19.

I made it to 00:20.

Not because he was bad. Didn't hear enough to determine that just yet.

But I couldn't get past the female impersonating and unnecessary high pitch. Even women don't sing that daintily and that high. I might watch it when I'm in a better mood.

Sorry I let you down, Mr. Joey. :S

He needs a very strong manager/producer to stop him making a lot of foolish musical choices--What kind of fool am I-blew me away.Looked at some of his other songs-too many vocal gimmicks at the moment -even Cleo Laine didn't show off that much.But such a cutie-just wonder where a voice like that will end up.

That's the point. You have to watch through to 3:41 or you miss the point of watching at all.

Those eyebrows, that voice. Ryan Murphy and Kurt from Glee have a lot to answer for.

As for the 3.41 mark, oy vey.
Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

Too much imitating of Mariah Carey. From the faces to the hand gestures. The "aren't I so cute and good faces?" are grating. He does have a shocking range though.

LOL when he sings the line, turn my dreams to shame he's giving the air a hand job! <3.

But damn that whole performance was just atrocious.

But I needed a good laugh this morning and this definitely provided it.

He can exist only because of Kurt on Glee. He is what Kurt on Glee should have become.

He has an amazing voice, but I could not stand his version of the song. I'm sorry I listened all the way through.
Now living in DC. I really have to change my name on the board.

My favorite part of the song is when he stopped singing.

Like many young artists, he seems to feel the need to show us every single note he has in every song he sings instead of considering what the song wants. Fierce voice though.

One thing I did like about this, was the way he comes back after the instrumental, "I had a dream my life would be . . ." - probably not what the song "needs" in the context of the show, but as stand-alone, I had not heard that before. The uber high notes at the very end, however, not for moi.

If you like that sort of thing, I guess...

To me it appears to be a lot of sparkly plastic style minus any substance - artificiality without content. Those slapping gestures don't equal "feeling," nor do random ultra-high notes equal good singing.

But, if you like that sort of thing...
