American Idol fans have spoken and this week’s victim is none other than Brooke White.
Many had thought that her exit from the show was a long time coming, especially following last week’s performance in which she forgot her words.
There will be no diamond in the ruff for the 24 year old Mesa, Arizona native who broke down into tears upon hearing that she was going home.
She was joined in the bottom two by Syesha Mercado, who sang “Hello Again” and “Thank the Lord for the Night Time.”
This leaves 4 remaining candidates; David Archuleta, David Cook, Jason Castro and Syesha Mercado all vying for America’s next Idol championship.
On Tuesday’s show, Brooke sang two songs from Neil Diamond: “I’m a Believer” and “I Am … I Said.”
Simon was not a fan of her first effort, but purked up considerably with her second number.
“This is the Brooke we like. Sitting behind the piano, singing a very good song,” Simon said. “It wasn’t incredible, but it was a million times better than the first song. Well done.”
“I just want to say thank you,” White said. “This is going to be terrible for me right now.”
