Alaina Whitaker didn’t lack confidence on American Idol last night. When asked if she looks like Carrie Underwood, the 16-year old from Oklahoma responded:

I’d like to think Carrie Underwood looks like me.

We like the confidence – but we loved the voice and the fact that she’s moving on to Hollywood. Check out her audition of Faith Hill’s “Stronger” now:
