The wholesome, singer-songwriter thing Brooke White has been banking on needs to stop.
Mariah Carey was the celebrity guest on American Idol last night, and all the contestants attempted to do their own version of Mimi's ballads. Some worked, like David Cook's rocker
version of Always Be My Baby, but most failed miserably. Namely,
Brooke White's rendition of Hero. It looked like Mariah wanted to
smash Brooke with one of the ribs she probably just got removed to
make her look skinnier.
Brooke's piano version of the song sounded
like a Vanessa Carlton ballad. Nothing like Mimi!
