What was Brooke White thinking when Ryan Seacrest announced her run on American Idol was over?
"Boom, it hit me" she told reporters following her elimination Wednesday night. "This is over."
As tears ran down her cheek, Brooke thought about "the fear of going back into the real world, and what does the future hold?"
"I hoped so much that I could have been stronger. I'm an emotional girl and I'm passionate, and that came through on the stage," White said.
The lovely, talented singer did concede that, in a certain way, getting the Idol ax was a relief. Her self-confidence issues, for example, "escalated at times ... [and] at other times I felt like I had a better handle on it."
Due to the deep emotions that surfaced for her throughout the show - and the pressure that went with then - White said, "in that sense, it does feel kind of good to be done with that, but I was welcoming the challenge as well."
Now that Brooke is out, who do you think will be eliminated next?
