Lauren Alaina and Carrie Underwood Team Up on "Before He Cheats"

by at . Comments

Lauren Alaina may not have won American Idol last night, but the aspiring country star earned a pretty solid consolation prize: she got to sing in front of millions with her own idol.

Indeed, Carrie Underwood returned to the stage that made her famous and teamed up with the young singer for a fun duet of "Before He Cheats."

While Lauren is talented, and hopefully has a long career in front of her, it's amazing to watch the difference between this finalist and an experienced artist such as Underwood. It's impossible not to notice the contrast in voice and swagger between the performers below.

Then again, Alaina is only 16. She may get to Carrie's level someday...

WOW! Watching Lauren singing with her idol Carrie Underwood was awesome. Carrie has it all and is so mature and
sophisticated. I think that Lauren is heading in the same direction as her idol, the ever AWESOME CARRIE UNDERWOOD! Good luck to Lauren. I hope she knocks the wind out of Taylor the Twitt. It's time to have someone who's going to finally knock Taylor out of the park! She is NO GOOD! Especially up against Carrie Underwood and Lauren Alaina. It's all over Taylor. Hang on for a tough upcoming year.

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
