Looking for the latest on American Idol 2013 Season 12 contestant Breanna Steer? We have all the latest American Idol Breanna Steer spoilers, news, gossip and more on the Season 12 contestant!
Name: Breanna Steer
Much like Adriana Latonio, American Idol 2013 contestant Breanna Steer took us by complete surprise when she hit the stage for her stellar rendition of Jazmine Sullivan’s “Bust Your Windows”. We hadn’t seen her during Hollywood Week, so the Laplace, Louisiana, native went from relative obscurity to judge (and possibly viewer) favorite in one episode.
Judge Nicki Minaj asked the 18-year-old exotic beauty what nationality she was, and she said, “I'm a lot of things," Steer said. "I'm Honduran, Black, Creole." Needless to say, American Idol judge Nicki Minaj was a huge fan, and called her “sexy on a stick.” A ringing endorsement!
In her pre-performance package, Breanna was shown looking through her home and belongings, much of which were wiped out during Hurricane Isaac. But the future for this talented singer, who names Kelly Clarkson as her Idol inspiration, is looking decidedly bright.
