Justin Bieber performs "You Smile" and "Baby" on "American Idol," hard for me to take him seriously, what with the hair and the vapid look.

He seems like he's in his own world on stage, doesn't exactly connect with his audience so much as he sings around them.

The hordes of girls all know every word to his song; if only he'd had to tried out for "Idol," the show's ratings would be like double right now. Not to mention it'd have been Simon's dream come true.

Bieberlicious closes his turn on stage with a 'self-indulgent' drum solo. Then flashes a million-dollar smile, awwwww.
