Lauren Alaina: Best American Idol Performance of the Night?

by at . Comments

Lauren Alaina tackled an iconic Elton John single last night, the track this singer revised in honor of Princess Diana.

It was a challenge for the American Idol finalist, but one that may have turned her into a season 10 contender.

Giving the ballad a unique sound via her country twang, Alaina earned overflowing praise from the judges. Randy referred to the cover as "sensitive," while Steven said it was perfect and J. Lo gushed: "You were gorgeous... That was it, baby. That was amazing."

Do we have a new front runner?

This was a good cover but the article has the tribute part of it wrong. Elton wrote this song originally for Marylin Monroe not Princess Di. The version he sung at her funeral was a rework of his original song. Regardless of that, this little lady has a music career ahead of her, whether through IDOL or some other record label snatching her up!


Meh. Maybe they talked it up too much. I didn't think she was that good. If she's the best there is, this season sucks.


Hell yeah!
