RECAP: 'American Idol' Sends DeAndre Brackensick Home
Jennifer Lopez considered using the judges' only "save" card on DeAndre Brackensick, 17, when it was announced that he received the lowest number of votes on Thursday's elimination episode of American Idol, but co-judges Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson were not on board with that idea.
Brackensick, who heavily relied on his falsetto singing voice and curly-cute looks, was in the bottom three for the third time Thursday. He was joined by Hollie Cavanagh and Elise Testone, as many predicted. Brackensick's performance of Debarge's "I Like It" for '80s tribute night on Wednesday was by most accounts one of the worst, and producer Jimmy Iovine put some of the blame on the judges for not criticizing Brackensick enough so that he could grow in a positive direction.
Also on Thursday's episode, Lopez's new video "Dance Again" debuted, British band The Wanted sang their hit "Glad You Came," and American Idol alum Kellie Pickler returned 30 pounds lighter to perform "Where's Tammy Wynette?"
