Skylar Laine Sneaks Up on American Idol Voters

by at . Comments

Skylar Laine has one clear advantage on season 11 of American Idol: this young finalist knows exactly who she is and exactly what kind of artist she wants to be.

A country rocker at heart, Skyler took on Bonnie Raitt's "Love Sneaking Up on You" last night, despite Jimmy Iovine telling her in the days leading up to the show that it wasn't the right song choice.

But Laine chose wisely, belting out a fun version and receiving praise across the board from the judges, especially Jennifer Lopez, who told the hopeful she "killed" it and Steven Tyler, who said quite simply: "I haven’t heard you sing a song bad yet."

Might Skylar be sneaking up on voters as a legitimate contender?
