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?
