Lauren Alaina Channels Carrie Underwood on Idol

by at . Comments

Not unlike how Haley Reinhart sang Lady Gaga, Lauren Alaina picked an atypical song from a current powerhouse chart-topper last night on American Idol.

With Carrie Underwood's "Flat on the Floor," Lauren sounded more energized than she has in weeks. For all intents and purposes, she channeled Carrie well.

"Lauren, that is the direction for you!" Randy says. "This direction I agree with 100 percent.. I thought it was amazing." The "sky's the limit," Steven added:

Her throwback to yesteryear was "Unchained Melody." It's her parents' song, she says, and Sheryl Crow notes that the song requires a lot of maturity.

It does, but Lauren Alaina was ready. No wonder she's made it to the top five - and we have to imagine the top four after this evening's results show.

Watch her sing the Righteous Brothers classic below ...

Who was the best performer Wednesday night?

This show is SO fixed - the 16 yr old Alaina is "fixed" to win by producers so why bother to vote! She'a also Ryan's "favorite" - notice how they can't keep their hands off each other while he's not that way with the others. Give the rest of us a break: finish this farce and get it over with because it's already a done deal.

PEOPLE: you've got to be kidding to keep this cry-baby around! All the other's take their "final 3" with grace as well as when they are elminated but Lauren tunes up the minute her name is mentioned! Does she think she's SO superior to the others?? This just goes to show how fixed AI is - the show/producers have had her down to win from the very beginning. It doesn't matter who votes for who - the show is FIXED people - forget watching, she's gonna win because of the producers. VOTES ARE JUST A SCAM in this case.

Second to last of votes or not, you are amazing, Lauren!
I always vote at least 50 times for you each performance and love your talented voice and sparkling personality!
Keep up the wonderful work! :)

American Idol Quotes

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.
