    Compare this rendition where you can HEAR his guitar to the piece of crap released in the final...the one with the orchestra wearing knit hats..he's playing guitar and YOU DON'T HEAR ANY OF IT. NOT SO SUBTLE. AI SCREWED HIS PLAY OVER....THEY WERE THE WRECKING BALL AND RUINED HIS SONG. IDIOTS.

    dealing with your lies inside i am dying now
    im dying now
    all of the lies u said to me now babe
    all of the lies u
    all of the lies u say
    oh.. the lies u say
    oh the lies that u say
    look into my eyes and say u dont need me
    when i walk away this time u dont need me anymore
    and i dont need u anymore
    and when i walk away look into my eyes now
    i will fall way into the darkness now
    the darkness now
    all of the lies u said to me last night
    remember now
    oh the lies..
    oh the lies...
    oh the lies..
    stay the night?

    The fact that Luke is mouthing the words to this Original songs shows that he has taken his time to either look up Alejandro either on his RUclip or his Spotify.

    I think you'll get hypnotized if you are really there at his concert or something...cuz the way Luke was lip syncing, even though he never heard the song before. Now that's something.

      @stenlin james , I’m betting Luke has probably seen all of his songs on utube , Spotify, and his instagram ( Scarypoolparty) like the rest of us and he knew the song😍😍😍
