Michael Buble‘s crooning doesn’t offend us but it doesn’t make us swoon either. No biggie, we felt the same way about Harry Connick Jr. He’s just not our scene.
However, we do find Buble very funny and amusing and suspect that he’s at least a tiny bit tipsy a good 85 to 90% of the time when he shows up to events. Kind of like a modern day Dean Martin. And that we definitely do dig.
So when he won for Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist at Sunday (Nov. 21) night’s American Music Awards, he had us eating out of the palm of his hand from the second he kicked off his accceptance speech with “God, I love winning things.”
He charmed us further when he thanked his fans, may they be “young, old, gay, straight, black, white, rich, poor,” and told his model/acress/singer fiancee Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre (say that 10 times fast — or even once for that matter), “Lu, you inspire me, kid.”
Still not sold? Just check out his turn with “Mad Men” actor Jon Hamm on last season’s “Saturday Night Live.” Hamm & Buble? An instant delicious classic.
