Last night’s American Idol finale was an all-star finish, with a line-up more like that of an award show than of a reality television finale. While we won’t spoil who was crowned season eleven’s winner last night, we want to share one of the best performances of the night which featured country contestant Skylar Laine and the Queen of Country herself, Reba McEntire. The two teamed up for Reba’s hit “Turn On The Radio,” and the always gracious Reba made sure to give Skylar center stage for most of it.
Check out their performance below and let us know what was your favorite part of last night’s finale:
The Academy of Country Music is currently uploading some behind the scenes videos on their YouTube channel and we want to share them with you!
