Who knew she had it in her her?!?

Skylar Laine, a young southern gal best known to American Idol fans so far on season 11 for her energy and lively personality on stage, simply stood at the microphone last night and belted out a beautiful version of Bette Midler’s “Wind Beneath My Wings.”

It was the sort of rendition we’d have expected from Jessica Sanchez, but Skylar proved her versatility with it, causing us to agree with Jennifer Lopez, who was on the verge of tears by the time Laine completed the cover and told her:

You “can sing with the best of them here.” Amen, J. Lo. Amen.
