American Idol: Skylar Laine & Hollie Cavanagh Take on Miranda Lambert & Carrie Underwood

American Idol: Skylar & Hollie

American Idol was full of stellar performances last night. It is being dubbed as one of the best episodes ever. And with good reason; the contestants really out did themselves. Eleven seasons in, it is great to see the abundance of talent that continues to step across the Idol stage.

Last night, the contestants each performed songs by their musical idols. Our country girl, Skylar Laine, chose “Gunpowder and Lead” by her idol and country superstar, Miranda Lambert.

You can definitely see the Miranda influence when Skylar performs. Her stage presence and performance energy are impressive, and she has a rockin’ country vibe. Just like her idol.

Skylar slayed her performance of “Gunpowder and Lead” and continues to bring her “A” game every week to the stage!

Check out the video of her performance:

American Idol: Skylar Laine

American Idol Season 11 is well underway. As you probably already know, this season’s resident country girl is Skylar Laine¬†and she is definitely one to watch. With a great set of country pipes and stellar performance skills, Skylar is going to be a serious contender for the Idol crown this year. She has “it” as they say.

Skylar has continued to impress me each week, and nails her performance every time she hits the stage. She is one of the most consistent contestants and her stage presence is second to none this season. Her country mixed with rock sound definitely suites her well, and fits in perfectly on current country radio.

Tonight on Idol, we will lose another contestant giving us the Top 9. I would be shocked if Skylar is in jeopardy after her fantastic rendition of Billy Joel’s “Shameless” last night.

American Idol: Top 24 Country Girls

Skylar Laine

There are three country girls that are a part of the Top 24 on American Idol this year.

Chelsea Sorrell is 23-years-old and hails from North Carolina. Chelsea had the stressful task of kicking off the show last night. She sang American Idol winner and country superstar, Carrie Underwood’s, “Cowboy Casanova.” She received mediocre comments from the judges who thought that nerves may have gotten the best of her.

After a few more contestants performed, Skylar Laine took the stage. The 18-year-old from Mississippi rocked the house with an energetic performance of the Faces’ hit, “Stay With Me.” Her style and vibe remind me of Miranda Lambert. She received a great deal of praise from Randy, Jennifer, & Steven last night. I think she might be in!
