You don't actually think he's in Josh Groban's vocal league do you? I think a better comparison for him is the male Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana).
Not technically - no, but in potential CD buyer demographics - yes. He will appeal to the pure pop people (yes, Disney-esque) and to the teeniebopper girls and possibly the 20 & 30-somethings as well. I think he has a wide demographic appeal, which is why he's (IMHO) destined for success.
I never considered him a peer to Hannah, but maybe you're right. They could market him the same way...maybe even a duet and tour together?
You do have to admit, the guy IS pretty charming.
Kristi - you reminded me about Simon's comment last year. I do think it was about Melinda Dolittle, about how she was the "one to beat". For whatever reason(s), she peaked too early.
