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!
Top 24 American Idol finalist, Chase Likens, is season 11′s resident country boy. The 21-year-old hails from West Virginia and is a student at Marshall University. On Tuesday night, he performed a great version of Hunter Hayes‘ song, “Storm Warning.”
Last season, country talents and rising stars, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina, took over the competition. We hope Chase continues the country music run on Idol and has a lot of success this year!
Catch American Idol Thursday night on Fox at 8/7c to see if Chase gains a spot in the Top 13.
