I’ve come to the conclusion the Season 9 alum, Tim Urban does not actually listen to the lyrics of the songs he sings. That would totally explain his bizarre cover of “Under My Thumb” during the competition, as well as this inexplicably jaunty rendition of Rihanna’s “Disturbia” Happy Happy Joy Joy!

Less off the wall, therefore not nearly as fun is a new cover of “Hey There Delilah”

    ok this is the one I voted for during s9, hell once he was gone didn’t even bother watching the rest of the season, except HCJr, he should be a judge. I enjoy Tim’s original and cover acoustic stuff, but that stuff he released on itunes…WTH no. that is called over produced.

    I can’t agree with you on that MJ, between his time in the iicd house and his interviews when his rather snarky personality showed up [very passive-aggressive], I believe he knows exactly what he is singing. Watch him in the Slezak interview when he talks about UMT, he is quite gleeful.
    Tim came off bit twisted to me after he left idol, normally that’s awesome to me, but with him.. bit creepy and most of the innocent vibe he put out, was an act. I stepped away from this one. But I did buy one of his originals in support tho and it is good to see that he is rather active.

    I listened to something else he covered, don’t recall what it was, because it was just eh. Odd phrasing, missed notes, all the same as it was on Idol.

    UMT was amusing, in an appalling sort of way – but if he’s being deliberately appalling, once is more than enough for that schtick.

    IMO. Of Course.

    Tim Urban’s hard to hate because he’s a cool guy but hard to like because he just plain sucks.

    Think some may be confusing Alex Lambert and Tim Urban. Tim was not in the IICD house. He was on the Idol tour.
