While fan favorites like Carly Smithson and Amanda Overmeyer didn't showcase their talents to their fullest potential, others who stumbled last week, like Kristy Lee Cook, bounced back a bit but still didn't wow the judges. And others, like Alexandréa Lushington, just flopped.
Then there was Brooke White, who sat on a stool, strummed her guitar and sang Carly Simon's "You're So Vain." Her performance was almost flawless and all three judges praised her for finding the perfect song -- one that suited her, showed off her voice and was timeless in its appeal.
All she could say was "Thank you." And, in a night when so many underperformed, that's all we could say to her.
Tell us: was Brooke White the best of the night? Who was better?FOX
