Washington County singer moves from ‘Idol’ to idle

After a long, emotional and high-profile journey full of successes, local “American Idol” contestant Adam Brock has performed his last song for the Fox show.

On Thursday night’s episode, Brock of Washington County didn’t make the Top 10, out of 13 men and 12 women in the semifinals, based on more than 33 million viewer votes cast on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

He still had a chance to advance via the wild card system, where judges Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez selected six contestants out of the 15 remaining to perform another song. But the judges chose other candidates.

Brock, 27, who calls himself “White Chocolate,” handled the news graciously, as he congratulated the other contestants before exiting the stage.

Before the results were announced, as Brock anxiously stood on stage with other contestants, the judges asked him how he was feeling.

“You’re excited, and you think, ‘I hope I did a good enough job’ — and then you realize that everyone did a good job.

“Your feelings, they keep neutralizing each other,” he said.

Brock lives in the city of Washington and is creative arts director at Central Assembly of God Church in Houston.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
