So last week I had nothing but praise for Brooke White and her awesome performance of the Beatles hit, “Let it Be”. This week was a different story; She still is my favorite contestant, I still think she is as cute as button, but her performance on this week’s American Idol was horrendous! Brooke sang the Beatles hit “Here Comes the Sun” and it was awkward, awkward and awkward! She looked pretty in her flowing yellow dress, but between her non-rhythmic dancing and her lack of soul, it was just a shallow performance. We all know that Brooke can deliver soul and depth, because her performance last week delivered, so it was especially disappointing that she failed miserably this week. All the judges told her that her performance looked forced and uncomfortable, and Brooke, in her sweet fashion, said the criticism was okay because the judges have been so nice to her in the past. Brooke is so sweet, because even when the judges were criticizing her she was still gracious and down to earth. I really believe that if she wins the competition she would never take her celebrity for granted and would not let herself get caught up in the Hollywood “scene”. I still have faith that Brooke will pull through and dazzle us next week.
