Brielle Von Hugel Sits on the Dock of the Bay, Looks Like Snooki

by at . Comments

Brielle Von Hugel looks kind of like Snooki. It has to be said.

With that information in our heads, it was a bit difficult to take this 17-year old seriously last night, as she belted out a version of Otis Reddings' "Sittin On the Dock of the Bay" for her first-ever live American Idol audition.

It didn't start very well, but picked up near the end and led to Steve Tyler praising the contestant's "sense of the blues," while Jennifer Lopez added that Brielle knows "what it is to entertain." Such compliments seemed to be masking the semifinalist's lack of a solid voice.

Where do you stand on Von Hugel? Watch and decide now:

Heard her sing in a restaurant in Staten Island about 5 years ago and didn't think then that she was all that good. I still think she isn't all that good and was certain that she would be voted off when she had to get votes from America. People are correct about the Mother she is not exactly a nice person, I'll leave it at that.
Both of them could use some lessons in humility and graciousness.
I don't know what the judges hear live from the stage but at home I didn't hear Brielle get through any song without going off key and struggling to keep on tune. If she was a top notch singer she would have been able to handle anything and she couldn't. I think she's living a pipe dream if she thinks she on par with the rest of the contestants or will make it as a singer.

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.
