Can You Duet? American Idol Contestant Brandon Green Makes the Top 20

Remember American Idol contestant Brandon Green? He was a Top 50 contestant during Season 7–cut just before making the Top 24. Not sure what he was thinking, but during his Dallas audition he confessed that he liked to peel his own fingernails and keep them in a bag. Some backstory, that was. Gross.

The Idol thing didn’t work out, but Brandon has made the Top 20 of another reality competition show, the second season of CMT’s “Can You Duet.”

Check out Brandon. He’s got a new look, and no stories about his icky personal hygiene habits. Can You Duet is produced by Freemantle Media, the Idol peeps, and is looking for the next BIG country duo. The last duo standing wins a recording contract with Big Machine Records–home of country princess Taylor Swift.

The show has plenty of twists and turns, with some duos advancing intact, but others making it without their partners. Some arrived at the open audition as singles and had to find partners on the spot. The singles who auditioned together and made the cut may or may not stay together. Brandon’s audition partner, his cousin Chris, didn’t make it to the Top 20, so Brandon is now paired up with a young singer, Jonathan Cox who lost two partners. More on the Top 20 HERE.

If you missed the 1st episode, re-runs are scheduled all week on CMT until the new episode airs on Saturday at 2:30 and 8 pm. Some really good singers made the cut–I’m planning on re-capping this one.
