    B-shorty is the man. He's going to be around making music for a VERY long time. Mark my words...his CD will be HUGE.



    Hey kcookie_94, Blake is an only child. Try doing some research before you make idiotic claims.
  • He's ok.

    Don't hate on me for this, and yeah, you can press that disagree button, I could care less. Blake is a great performer he really is, and he might become more popular than Jordin. But still, he didn't deserve to win American Idol, let's face the facts. He is a great performer, probably one of the best on American Idol. But Jordin was a better singer than he was, and American Idol is a singing competition. I bet pretty much a good fourth of Blake's votes came from fangirls. No offense to fan girls. My favorite performance of his is You Give Love A Bad Name. Once again, great performer, ok singer.moreless
