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: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
