Deandre Brackensick on American Idol Elimination: I Agree!

by at . Comments

Throughout his run on American Idol, which came to an end on last night's results show, Deandre Brackensick was easily the most polarizing contestant on season 11.

And the long-haired crooner knew it, based on an interview he gave to E! News soon after Ryan Seacrest broke the bad news to him on national television.

"My style, you either love it or hate it," Brackensick said. "And, you know, R&B is so unappreciated right nowadays and I really want to bring it back, so I kind of had a feeling somewhat. Things happens for a reason and it's not the end. Just gotta keep fighting for it."

Jennifer Lopez said she tried to save Deandre last night, but she was outvoted by Randy and Steven.

Still, you won't hear this aspiring star complain. Quite the opposite, in fact.

"I understand where the judges are coming from. I've already been saved once and you only get so many chances, so I wasn't ready for America right now. I agree with them 100 percent. I agree with the judges, I agree with Jimmy [Iovine] and what happened. I'm just grateful I got to this point."

Do you think Brackensick should have been sent home this week?
