Somehow our favorite country bumpkin on 'American Idol' this season, Skylar Laine, landed herself in the bottom three last week. Rather than sulking about her near demise, the fiery singer came out tonight (May 2) in a fringed vest and boots choosing to perform a foot stomping rendition of ‘Fortunate Son’ by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
This week with Queen’s greatest hits being brought to the stage, country songstress and 'American Idol' contestant Skylar Laine choose ‘The Show Must Go On’ from the bands 1991 album ‘Innuendo.’ As a contestant who has not once delivered a less than favorable performance, we weren’t surprised as Laine hit every note of the performance and proved that indeed, her show will likely go on beyond this week’s eliminations.
If Season 11's rocking country girl Skylar Laine wants to make it country, baby, it's okay. She was born that way. She countrified two non-country songs on 'American Idol' tonight (April 18) during both her performances. The contestants were asked to perform a modern song as as well as classic soul tune this evening and Laine did what she does best.
Mississippian and ‘American Idol’ contestant and Skylar Laine may just be the best singer on whatever side of the Mississippi she resides on. This week the contestants had a plethora of options as they were able to choose any song that had been recorded from 2010 on. Not a surprise Laine picked a country song, 'Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You,' by fellow country crooner and ‘Idol’ alum Kellie Pickler.
After finding herself in the bottom three last week, Skylar Laine had to prove she deserved to survive another week on ‘American Idol.’ And, as she put it, she “put on a pretty ol’ dress” and showed us something we hadn’t seen yet with an unbelievable performance of ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’ from the movie ‘Beaches.’
Country gal Skylar Laine reminds us of Reba, but she idolizes Miranda Lambert and that's whose song she chose to perform on tonight's (March 28) episode of 'American Idol.' The hopefuls were allowed to sing songs by their own personal idols and Laine did Lambert proud with her crackling performance.
If ‘American Idol’ contestant Skylar Laine was really “a lot more nervous than usual” on account of the judges “being mean,” tonight, she certainly didn’t let it show. In the beginning of her segment it showed as the mentors tried unsuccessfully to steer her in another direction with her song choice and take her out of her comfort zone.
