'American Idol': DeAndre Brackensick finishes bottom of Top 8 poll

By
DeAndre Brackensick has landed in last place in Digital Spy's Top 8 performance night poll.

The 17-year-old's cover of DeBarge's 'I Like It' impressed judges Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson, but failed to have a similar effect on voters, pulling in only 2.3%.

Faring slightly better but still falling quite near the bottom was Elise Testone, whose take on Foreigner's 'I Wanna Know What Love Is' disappointed the panel and readers, receiving only 6.2%.

Hollie Cavanagh's attempt at Irene Cara's famous Flashdance track 'What a Feeling' also missed its mark, taking in an underwhelming 6.9% of votes, while Joshua Ledet's emotional version of Simply Red's 'If You Don't Know Me By Now' managed to grab 8.1%.

Tied for second place were Colton Dixon and Phillip Phillips, whose performances of Cyndi Lauper's 'Time After Time' and Genesis's 'That's All' respectively pulled in 11.7% of readers.

Finally, coming in at the top spot yet again was Jessica Sanchez, whose rendition of Whitney Houston's 'How Will I Know' earned a whopping 38.5%.
