    Re: AI 11 DeAndre Brackensick

    I made a list of songs he can sing in the show, that is if he lasts long enough:

    Always & Forever -Heatwave
    Crying - Roy Orbison
    It Ain't Over Til it's Over - Lenny Kravitz
    A Little Respect - Erasure
    Hearts of Fire - Earth Wind & Fire
    What's Going On - Marvin Gaye
    Somewhere Over The Rainbow - Israel Kawalawhatever
    I Second That Emotion - Smokey Robinson
    I Just Wanna Be Your Everything - Andy Gibb
    Don't Throw it All Away- Andy Gibb
    Too Much Heaven - Bee Gees
    Fanny Be Tender - Bee Gees
    Love You Inside and Out - Bee Gees
    Cant Take My Eyes Off You - 4 Seasons
    Working My Way Back To You - 4 Seasons

    Take on Me - aHa
    A-HA Take On Me 1984 Version - YouTube

    I really don't want him to sing the following, but just for laughs:
    Hey There Lonely Girl - Delfonics
    Don't Stop Til You Get Enough - Michael Jackson
    Loving You - Minnie Ripperton

    I am cracking up over the idea of DeAndre singing Loving You by Minnie Riperton! (Anybody too young to know this song from the 70s, Google it.)

    I like DeAndre and hope he can be coached to use the falsetto as the seasoning, not the main course.

    I confess - everytime I see this kid toss his hair around, I start having Milli Vanilli flashbacks. And now, that's all I can see/think of when he performs.

    Good one! He does have that Milli Vanilli flair. I was surprised he didn't do better on the audience voting. I expected him to take the teen and pre-teen girl vote.

    I'm not sure they have the controlling demographic anymore. Who, on a school night, lets their pre-teen stay up until midnight voting? I think teens are too cool for AI these days.
    Count your blessings!

    Geez...I thought I was the only one thinking this. I kept thinking Rob Pilatus of Milli Vanilli every time I saw him. But I actually do like the kid and think he's talented.

    I was actually a little disappointed in his performance last night. I think it was not what I was expecting of him.

    LoL - even though they lip synced - I loved those tunes back in the day!

    I was actually pleased with his performance last night--breathed a sigh of relief, actually. From his previous performances, I was a little concerned that falsetto was all he had to offer. But he proved last night that he has a little more "guts" to voice rather than just coming out and sounding like Smokey Robinson every week.

    Nothing wrong with sounding like Smokey Robinson. I, too, hope that he sings more in full voice rather than falsetto. I am right there with you on Milli Vanilli!

    Deandre had fun out there last night. Hopefully he can last long enough to put him on the map, but we know how AI loves baladeers ... and then we never hear from them again. At least Deandre has the potential to go far, only time will tell.
