Skylar Laine Eliminated from the American Idol Season 11

Skylar Laine

After narrowly missing it last week, Skylar Laine is eliminated from American Idol season 11. It was a tough call for her and her fellow contestant Hollie Cavanagh, who also belonged to the bottom two this week. Lucky for Hollie and her good looks she was saved eventually. Now its an even fight between girls and boys as two remains from each gender.

Four contestants remain and has the chance to battle it off in the finals. The remaining contestants are as follows: Phillip Phillips, Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh and, of course, my ultimate favorite, Jessica Sanchez. Before the elimination, each contestant performed Songs from the 1960s and from a British Pop singer. Skylar performed Fortunate Son by Creedence Clearwater Revival for her solo 1960s song, (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher by Jackie Wilson for a 1960s group performance and You Don't Have to Say You Love Me by Dusty Springfield for British Pop.

You could check her performances here:

Songs from the 1960s (solo) - Fortunate Son

Songs from the 1960s (trio) - (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher

British Pop - You Don't Have to Say You Love Me

Now, I guess it's about time Skylar goes home cause many of her critics really lambasted how she sings country. I guess Skylar Laine's elimination just gives the remaining four, who are more deserving by the way, greater chances to finally achieve the title of this year's American Idol. I just hope it would be Jessica Sanchez. So keep voting on for Jessica, everyone. Let's make her dreams a reality.
