It really is a thing where people treat attractive people bad. It's a new but very old "ism." And it's sad.

He’s overflowing with arrogance that you don’t need to get to know him to know it.

I'm not really a fan of his. His voice is mediocre. But, I thought he left last season because of a family emergency. So, should him leaving last season really be held over him?

He came in with a lot of arrogance maybe, but I felt like by the end he was starting to grasp what he needed to do and where he really stood.

That’s just cause Katy Perry lived hell and back without those stupid costumes that now she’s saying to kids to loose « ego ». He doesn’t have ego, he’s smart enough to deal with his personal issues & come back. That’s the way to go. Those judges are wackos moulded by a system that plays them like stringed puppets. What’s Lionel Richie latest tube? Erh none maybe he produces now who knows. As for the 3rd dude, who the heck is he!

It’s very good 👀, but I think your insecurity make him looks arrogant. And looks a kind of guy who grow up with grandma. Btw every deserves a second chance . And sure is very younger. And I love the song and him version was horrible .

Nic will not make it. Such an attitude won't get you far. I was surprise to see the judges are so 'kind hearted', but lets move on, he's not worth your invaluable time.

They are the best three judges! This is constructive criticism that actually is aimed to make a difference. I hate his ego as well, i was so annoyed by him. The reality check was much needed. lol

First off......this kid could seriously be Elvis’ son (if Elvis had a son).......yes he’s that handsome! Yes he’s very good looking and he has a pretty good voice but if he’s going to make it and have all the woman falling at his feet.......being humble IS one of the most amazing things!!!

I don't think he deserves all the hate... so he's young, cocky, and a little cheezy about it.... he'll learn.

is it just me or these judges love each other, they blend so well and their feedbacks dont just prove how they're legends, but also theyve got hearts, theyre intentional and they care about the contestants. i love this batch of judges i hope they wont get replaced.

Don't judge people's attitudes only from 10-minute videos. different people's characters. For you is not polite, for people who are close to him normal. this is a singing competition not an attitude-testing competition
