(WFLX) - It was a nail biter to the very end for South Florida. Would our very own American Idol semi-finalists Brett Loewenstern make the cut?
Loewenstern has been a standout since we first saw his tryout in New Orleans. He gave us a taste of growing up being bullied at school. "I would like to say to the people that tried to bring me down, bully me, backstab me, whatever: No negativity anymore. I'm done with being a victim."
And he's shined every night we seen him thus far -- acting well beyond his years. And all his hard work and positivity is paying off. Thursday night, we learned who the top 24 are, and Loewenstern took the last spot!
The way it was revealed was a bit tough, and poor Brett didn't really get a chance to celebrate as he was brought in with two other contestants, Colton Dixon and Jacee Badeaux. The other two did not make the cut.
Staying in character, Loewenstern encourage the other two and reassured their success of making it this far.
Wednesday night, five of the 24 were revealed. Now, onto the other 18.
