He started off very strong and his first 3 performances were amazing, what a wonderful world is one of my favorites of all time. But when he reached the top 12 he seemed to lose some of that star quality and his pwerformances began to splip, saying that he is still one of the best male perfomers in american idol history and hes so sweet.

Anwar arguably had the best voice in the contest this year; definitely the best among all the men. He was deinitely able to take songs and make them his "own". Anwar is a great looking guy, with a sweet smile and pleasant demeanor, but his performances lacked the explosive, smouldering energy and impact of some of the other finalists (i.e., Constantine and Bo)

He seemed to be a favorite in the beginning of the competition. But as it progressed, weaknesses were reveiled. He seemed to have trouble hitting the low notes, which I think is what eventually led to him being voted off.

Although Anwar was one of my favorites coming off of auditions, he quickly lost me. I was not thrilled with his song choices and frankly, he just bored me. Things were the same with him week after week and when he was eliminated, I could not remember that he had been there. It was, for me, a case of no growth....perhaps potential had already been met and there was nowhere else to go.

Anwar always sounded a bit "pitchy" to me. He has a beautiful voice. . . sounded a lot like Stevie Wonder to me. That is the problem, there has already been a SW. He strived to make songs his own, but I felt that was when he went off pitch. He is a beautiful person to look at. Has a certain flare about him.

Anwar: Unrealized Potential
May 20, 2005 01:15 PM ET
Reviewed by: FlyrGrl
Anwar has a very good voice, tending towards nasal, but not unpleasantly. He did have trouble finding the pitch at times, wavered and occasionally missed badly. Performed much better in the semi-final studio, with a smaller band. He clearly posesses strong musical knowledge. He is a very nice looking man who projects a quiet, sweet personality. I felt his stage-presence was lacking; that he looked nervous and uncomfortable, especially on the larger stage. He performed almost the same routine every week (sitting, then standing, walk a little, glory note ending). When he attempted to let loose and dance, he came across as awkward and his vocals suffered. Even thought the arrangement of some songs was unique, he still became predictable and a bit dull. His "Moon River" performance showed his potential, but it was not built upon.

Anwar exudes likeablitiy. He seems genuinely nice! I would love for him to teach music to my children or grandchildren. As singer, however, he was frequently quite off-key throughout the entire performance, not just at the nervous beginning of a song. I'll admit, he always belted out a thrilling, on-key high note at the end of each song that saved his performances from total vocal disaster. On stage, he wasn't always comfortable and it showed in some stiff, rather lifeless performances. At other times, he was dynamic and smooth. Even though I am a guy, I will agree that Anwar is good looking and LOOKS like an American Idol.

Anwar Robinson seems like a great guy who loves music. In the long run, I think his song selection hurt him more than anything else. "Moon River" and "What a Wonderful World" were pop standards decades ago, and were Robinson's best performances. He struggled when he tried to sing more modern selections. He has the look of a pop star, pleasant vocals, and if given the correct material to sing, may be successful outside of his classroom.

At first I loved Anwar's voice. On the ballads he has a gorgeous tone. But when he tried to get out of that genre and made attempts at showmanship, his vocal quality was not as good. I often felt uncomfortable when he was doing something other thatn a ballad because he seemed awkward. I like him VERY much as a person though, but I don't think he has the charisma to appeal to m audience.

I had great hopes for him. I really liked him as a person, the way he seemed to be a nice guy, sincere, refined. He had a great sound to his voice. He made most songs original---or different from the original recorded versions. Problem was they all were done the same--so even though they were different from other versions of that song, they all started being done exactly the same---low, not the best at the beginning and a big huge ending. I wish his voice and control was more consistent throughout the entire song, cause he had the ability to make people really love him and pull for him.

I said from the start that Anwar was Awesome but he wasn't going to be our next AI. His voice is wonderful and really full and great to get lost in, but his style is perfect for smooth jazz and adult contemporary music, not pop. He was a little shaky on his lower range, but not as bad as the judges made it out to be. Of course his big soaring notes were actually the standard for quite some time- all of the other contestants felt the pressure to match it and for several weeks each contestant had a song with a big long note towards the end, which has died down since his departure from the show. Best wishes to him, he's great but not AI material.
