No wonder Jennifer (whom I love) was crying last night, she must have felt ashamed that they kept the Karaoke Kid (who I am now naming Karate Kid for chopping Jaycee from their group performance) and elimated a great singer and person Chris Medina. Steve Tyler (whom I also love but am so disappointed with) did not show the compassionate as I thought he would as Chris of all people deserved to be in the top 24 to let America decide. Thanks, Carol

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
