This week, "American Idol's" Season 11 top 24 semifinalists will at long last be revealed. But about a year ago this time, one of my favorite Season 10 contestants, Brett Loewenstern, was receiving similar good news, when he made it to the top 12 boys.
Sadly, Brett's time on Season 10 was cut short--he didn't make it past the semifinals--but he's been doing just fine since. He recently got accepted to the prestigious Berklee School of Music, and he's currently writing, recording, and releasing music on his own. And when he stopped by Yahoo! while in Los Angeles to play a recent Trevor Project event, he performed three of his great original tunes for Reality Rocks. Brett is clearly an example that "it gets redder," as he puts it.
Check out Brett's performances below. Look at him now, indeed!
