DeAndre Brackensick: A Captivating American Idol Performance?

by at . Comments

Captivating. Super great. Amazing.

These were all descriptions the American Idol judges bestowed on DeAndre Brackensick last night, following his take on the 1980s Debarge track "I Like It."

Are you on board with these praiseworthy critiques of Brackensick's falsetto? Or are you wondering just what Jennifer, Steven and Randy were smoking prior to DeAndre taking the stage? Judge the hair-flipping singer's latest performance now:

It's safe to say DeAndre was not our favorite. But, then again, compared to Skylar Laine and her version of "Wind Beneath My Wings," everyone was singing for second this week.

I think he should have been gone ago. Shouldn't have been in the final 10. Jennifer is either tone deaf or is infatuated with younger men. Phillip P should go next!

DEANDRE IS THE REASON I WATCHED AMERICAN IDOL EACH WEEK IM EXICTED TO SEE WHAT HE WILL SING NEXT. NOW NOTHING TO WATCH FOR JESSICA SHOULD NEVER SING WHITNEY HOUSTON NOR SHOULD ANYONE ELSE SHE SOUNDED LIKE CRAP. COLTON WASNT THAT GOOD IN THE DUET. THEY SHOULDNT BE LIMITED TO CERTAIN ARAS THEY SHOULD JUST GET TO SING WHAT EVER

I THINK JIMMY IVEEN IS DANGEROUS HE PUTS HATEFUL THOUGHTS IN VOTERS HEADS. HES WORSE THEN SIMMON EVER WAS. BECAUSE AT LEAST SIMMON WAS HONEST. JIMMY HE JUST TALKS SMACK. IM WONDERING IF HES PREDJUDIC HE NEVER HAS ANYTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT DEANDRE. CLEARLY THE KID CAN SING. EVEN MARY J BLIGE HAD TO TELL JIMMY HEY HE CAN DO IT. HE CRITICIZES DEANDRE SO BAD THAT HE CHANGED INTO SOMETHING ELSE I THINK THEY SHOULD JUST SHUT UP AND LET PEOPLE PERFORM. PHILIP PHILLIPS IS THE ONLY ONE WHO ISNT LISTENING TO HIS STUPID ASS HE HAS STAYED TRUE TO HIMSELF. AND HES GETTING VOTES. DEANDRE SHOULD STOP FLIPPING HIS HAIR SO MUCH IT STARTS LOOKING A LITTLE FEMININE HE LOOKS REALLY HOT WHEN HE PULLS IT BACK IN THE BUN CHECK OUT YOU TUBE VIDEOS CANT WAIT TO SEE HIM AND HIS GROUP ID GO TO HIS CONCERT JUST TO HEAR HIM SING COVER SONGS. SO SAID HES GONE NOTHING TO WATCH IDOL FOR NOW. ILL WATCH THE VOICE

Frankly, tonight America didn't vote correctly... I'm truly outraged and quite disappointed that DeAndre went home after that amazing redemption of "I like it". Honestly it was heartbreaking and another idol > Hollie deserved to pack.

I am sure that D is a very nice young man, but I don't like that kind of singing at all, in any form. I consider it extremely boring and dull.

Loved DeAndre last night. He is finally growing into himself. His natural, relaxed self is confident, capable, and a total winner. Will always be a DeAndre fan because he's the whole package, plus intelligent, loving, aware individual. He's UNIQUE, and a rare and talented human being. Look on youtube and see him sing NaWili Wili, and/or dance Hawaiian. He can do anything once he puts his mind to it. GO, DeANDRE...

he is terrible and boring and he is a one note screamer--let him go home

Yeah, this was a good performance. Unfortunately, he used his falsetto way tooooo much in his early performances and it got old fast. So, now when you hear it, its not fresh but somewhat annoying. Sing boy, just sing! Wait until you get a recording contract, then squeal as much as you want. First, keep the AI voters in your corner. Each season people blame teeny-boppers for keeping guys like DeAndre in the competition--not true.

I have to say this week Deandre sounded much better, and he seemed more relaxed and not so nervous....but all in all, he should be leaving A.I. soon, the only reason he's still around is because his fan base consists only of the young teenyboppers and NO ONE ELSE>>>>>.....Also that girl Hollie has no rhythm in dancing....actually she quite boring in that department..... she can sing, but i don't see her winning......My money is on Jessica Sanchez, and Joshua Ledet...J.Lo was right last night when she mentioned that in the end it could possibly be these 2 for the finale.....i also hope that Phillip Phillips does not win....i know he is popular, but i do not like his style of singing, and i hope he goes home soon.......

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.
