American Idol contestant Brett Loewenstern is done being a victim.
But he isn't done impressing the judges and millions of viewers across the country.
During last night's Hollywood round, the 16-year old admitted he was "shaking in his pants" prior to singing, but he calmed his nerves, belted out a version of "Let It Be" that advanced him further on season 10 and told the camera:
"I would like to say to the people that tried to bring me down: Bully me, backstab me, whatever. No negativity anymore. I'm done with being a victim."
Amen, Brett Loewenstern. How far do you think this rumored top 40 contestant can go?
