We should probably disclose this before we go any further: We like Christopher Maloney a lot here at heat. The man is a sweetums. He loves his Nan. You can't hate a man who loves his Nan. It's the rules.
But… how to put this? He really does like a good cry. Like, a lot. He cried at his audition. He cried when he was told he didn't get through. He cried when he did get through. He cries when the judges say nice things. He cries when they say mean things. One time, in Week 5, he cried just because he'd sung a song really well. We know this fact quite intimately. We've watched every video of Christopher Maloney that there is to make this gallery and we don't want to see any more.
Anyway: Enjoy the gallery below, and think of it as a little preview of tonight's final. You can bet that Christopher will shiver softly and cry around the 45 minute mark.
