Hollywood Round[]

Brenna was shown in a group with Marcy Smith and Nick Whitten singing "I Can't Help Myself" by The Four Tops. Everyone in the group advanced. She managed to make the judges final forty-four and at the final deliberation, they told her she did enough to make the Top 24.

Top 24[]

Brenna sang "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" by Stevie Wonder. She received enough votes to be considered "safe" for that week.

Top 20[]

Brenna sang "Last Dance" by Donna Summer. She received the lowest number of votes among the girls, eliminating her from the competition.


  • She notably had an interesting relationship with Simon Cowell with her "precocious" and "catty" but likeable attitude towards him.
