American Idol 2012 Top 5 Results Night: Skylar Laine Eliminated!
Skylar Laine got the boot on the Top 5 Elimination (Results Night) of American Idol Season 11 May 3 (May 4 in Manila). Skylar had step up a lot on her performances but America has decided to let go of Skylar on tonight’s American Idol 2012 Top 5 results show after garnering the least number of votes.
Before Skylar was sent packing, the American Idol 2012 results show was made more exciting by the performances of Carrie Underwood, which rendered her latest single Blown Away, and British band Coldplay which rocked the house with songs from their Mylo Xyloto album, Paradise and Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.
Skylar was joined in the bottom 2 by Hollie Cavanagh.
Skylar has been on top of the Entertainment Weekly’s Idol rankings for 2 consecutive weeks now and also other websites’ bet to win the whole thing. Her elimination tonight might be reflective of being the less popular idol hopeful even though she gave powerful performances the last few weeks.
Skylar Laine sang Fortunate Son by Creedence Clearwater Revival and Dusty Springfields’You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me during last night’s American Idol Top 5 solo performances. She also joined the girls’ trio and performed Jackie Wilson’s Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher and Higher.
Before leaving the Idol stage tonight, Skylar gave us again a breath-taking performance of Miranda Lambert’s Gunpowder and Lead.
So, we are down to your American Idol 2012 Top 4. We have 2 more weeks before the finale on May 23rd and the competition gets stiffer on American Idol Season 11. Who among Jessica Sanchez, Phillip Phillips, Joshua Ledet and Hollie Cavanagh will be pulling it off next week and who among them will fail to impress the judges?
Don’t miss next week’s American Idol Top 4 performances, May 9 and the live results show on May 10.
