Why Was Breanna Steer Voted Off American Idol Tonight? 3/7/2013
Now we may never who American Idol 2013 contestant Breanna Steer dedicated her last song to! She was eliminated tonight and didn’t make it to the Season 12 Top 10.
It may have been hard for voters to get Nicki Minaj’s voice out of their heads. After Breanna performed Beyonce's "Flaws and All," the judge told her, “I think this was absolutely the wrong song for you.” She went on to say, “You sounded like you were straining throughout the entire performance. Outside of you looking amazing, that was not it at all.” In fact, Nicki said that if viewers hadn’t seen Breanna sing Jazmine Sullivan’s “Bust Your Windows” the week before, they probably wouldn’t vote for her.
That was the performance Randy called “perfect,” but he called this song “safe.” Unfortunately for the Laplace, Louisiana native, this week, she was anything but safe.
But what most intrigued us about Breanna was the tease gave Ryan Seacrest after her semi-finals song when he asked what she was thinking about during the performance. “I was just thinking about something special, that’s all,” she replied. Someone in the room? “Yeah, you could say that.” The best part? The way her mom emphatically shook her head, as if she wasn’t having it.
Please tweet about it, Breanna! The suspense is killing us.
Do you think she deserved to make it through to the Top 10?
