Deandre Brackensick Hits Many High Notes on American Idol

by at . Comments

It's safe to say Deandre Brackensick might be the most polarizing contestant on season 11 of American Idol.

The high school senior - who could easily pass for at least 25 - possesses a unique look (that hair!) and a unique sound (that voice!), both of which caused the judges to fall all over themselves with praise. Randy even said Brackensick was one of the most commercially-ready contestants the show has ever had.

Really? Would you buy a Deandre Brackensick album? The contestant covered Earth, Wind, and Fire's "Reasons" for his live performance and we highly recommend giving it a listen below. It's... different.

How does Deandre stack up against fellow men Phillip Phillips and Reed Grimm? You tell us!

I don't get the hair and his over usage of falsetto. He won't go very far in the competition.

Love his voice, although I would have liked to hear a different song.....hope he wins! I voted for him.

He was horrible. His falsetto will get annoying after a few weeks.....if he makes it through. People will get tired of him.

He's the best of all the guys.... hands down! No questions about it.

Beautiful voice, his appearance reminds me of a mixture of Marylin (not Monroe but the singer from the 80's) and Milli Vanilli. He is pretty.

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.
