American Idol finalist Skylar going home

May 4, 2012

It was an unfortunate night for Skylar Laine on "American Idol."

The 18-year-old country rocker from Brandon, Miss., who imbued Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son" and Dusty Springfield's "Say You Love Me" with her twangy sensibilities on Wednesday's show was revealed to have received the fewest viewer votes Thursday on the Fox singing contest.

Laine was joined at the bottom by Hollie Cavanagh, the 18-year-old balladeer from McKinney, Texas, who opened Wednesday's installment with a pop-infused take on Ike and Tina Turner's "River Deep Mountain High," and later dialed it down with the Leona Lewis hit "Bleeding Love."

"They both sang their faces off last night," said "Idol" judge Randy Jackson.

The other singers remaining in the competition are booming 20-year-old gospel singer Joshua Ledet of Westlake, La.; bluesy 21-year-old pawn shop worker Phillip Phillips of Leesburg, Ga.; and budding 16-year-old pop diva Jessica Sanchez of San Diego.

The four remaining finalists will return to the stage next week.

Who's been keeping up with Idol this year?  I've watched it a few times and I love Skylar.  That girl is as country as you can get.  She reminds me of Gretchen Wilson. Skylar likes to hunt, fish, and ride four-wheelers.  I believe she is one of the most talented contestants on the show. I'm sorry to see her go.
I still can't figure our why contestant Holie Cavanagh is still around.  Her performances  have been pitchy and downright unpleasant in my opinion. Her personality doesn't make me like her anymore. I believe she should have been voted off  a long time ago.
Who's your favorite this year?
Of the 4 contestants left, 4 are from Georgia. 
Who do you think will be the next contestant to leave the show?
Do you have a favorite perfroamce this year?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
