American Idol 2011 16-Year-Old Deandre Brackensick Earns Standing Ovation (VIDEO)
Singing a candy-coated pop rock version of Queen’s “Somebody To Love,” the stage-mom coached group known as the Minors had the Idol judges rocking along to their symbiotic harmonies.
Singing solos reminiscent of the early days of the Jackson 5, 16-year-old Keonna Evans, 15-year-old Jalen Harris, 15-year-old Sarina-Joi Crowe and 15-year-old Felix Ramsey took turns impressing the judges.
But it was the pure falsetto of 16-year-old tenor Deandree Brackensick that brought Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopes to their feet.
Not even bothering to deliberate, J Lo stated the obvious by sending all five onto the next round.
