Song choice is crucial on American Idol, as is believing in the song you chose. DeAndre Brackensick changed his song from Elton John's "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" to "Endless Love" by Mariah Carey and Luther Vandross. This change was made after meeting with Jimmy Iovine and will.i.am, but may have steered him wrong. DeAndre has a smooth voice and he looks to get the teen vote, but is still a wild card. A ballad of any sort is bland from him, but it should at least be one that is his choice. Jennifer Lopez still liked him despite not loving the performance, as she said that changing the key of the song may have been a mistake. Randy Jackson said he could tell that DeAndre was not feeling the song, and selling the song is a lot of any performance on Idol. Despite being a favorite among the female voters, he could be in trouble as American Idol decides its top ten.
