Jessica Sanchez took part in an Internet U Stream chat yesterday and while the American Idol runner-up touched on various aspects of that show and her career, it was a personal revelation that has fans buzzing today:

Oh, DeAndre Brackensick. You're making this way too easy.

The high-pitched American Idol finalist covered a somewhat random Eric Benet track last night, "Sometimes I Cry," giving critics far too obvious of an avenue to mock the contestant. As in: yes, DeAndre, sometimes you make us cry, especially when you rely so heavily on a falsetto that pierces our ear drums.

This just in: DeAndre Brackensick is no Billy Joel.

The curly-haired American Idol hopeful took to the stage last night as part of the top 10, but clearly struggled through one of Joel's best known tracks, "Only The Good Die Young." Perhaps Tommy Hilfiger's advice for DeAndre to let his hair hang all the way down threw this singer off his game.

American Idol viewers may see the last of DeAndre Brackensick, his hair and his falsetto this week.

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.

American Idol has named its final 12 men on season 11.

Okay, yes, there will actually be 13 men, but if the show is keeping the final semifinalist secret until he performs on Tuesday night then he can blame producers for being left off this list.
