The success that comes with being an “American Idol” finalist hasn’t gone to Skylar Laine’s head. She still enjoys the simpler things in life, like hanging out with friends, hunting and getting toasty by a bonfire.
But that doesn’t mean the 18-year-old native of Brandon, Miss., isn’t fired up about being on tour as part of American Idol Live!, which takes center stage at the Sovereign Center in Reading on Saturday night.
“It’s been awesome and a lot of fun,” said Laine about touring the country with the other top 10 finalists from Season 11 of “American Idol.” “It’s a really great experience.”
Another shocking elimination tonight as Colton Dixon, who many thought had a good chance of winning, was sent home. As you may recall the judges used their save on Jessica Sanchez last week so there was nothing they could do to save Colton.
Vote for the Worst is encouraging people to vote for Phillip Phillips, who they really dislike for some reason. Last week they claimed victory in messing with the results. Apparently they want a white guy who plays the guitar to win?? Not sure what that’s all about but I don’t think I want to understand their logic.
Losing isn’t always a bad thing on American Idol. Look at Chris Daughtry. This gives Colton a jumpstart on his music career instead of wasting a year doing what AI wants him to do and waiting too long to release his first album. Hopefully he will strike while the iron is hot and take advantage of his time on national television!
