I absolutely loved Brooke White on American Idol, from the first time they showed during auditions to her very last performance. Sure, she let her nerves get the best of her at times (especially these last couple of weeks), and yeah, she wasn't the BEST singer on the show, but she always seemed so genuine and heartfelt and vulnerable whenever she performed, which to me is way more important than being able to sing five octaves. Apparently, Carly Simon thought so too, because she called in to Fox & Friends yesterday during Brooke's interview to give MAJOR props to Brooke. It was so touching and sweet!!!
I hope Brooke goes on to have a long and lasting and very successful career. Good luck, Brooke!
