Skylar Laine's American Idol Performance Video 4/18/12

Tonight’s theme on American Idol is “Now & Then” and we’ll see the same seven competitors take on two songs. Last week, the judges saved Jessica Sanchez in a last minute use of their only save of the season. If you’ve missed last week’s elimination, you can read that recap here. Of course, tonight we are recapping the show LIVE at this link.

Left in the competition are Phillip Phillips, Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez, Skylar Laine, Elise Testone and Colton Dixon. There are no more saves, so the competition really has to bring it to avoid elimination.

On tonight’s show, Skylar Laine is performing Lady Gaga’s song Born This Way.

WATCH THE VIDEO:

Our commentary:

Oh no. A country version of Gaga. It’s not bad, but I am not a fan of country music whatsoever. She’s a great and talented singer, but for now we must mute the television.

Judge’s commentary:

Jennifer: She loves this version of the song. The song was perfect for her. She was amazing and it was perfect for her.
Steven: He’s glad she was born that way. She’s giving all of the other girls a run for their money. She is so beautiful and good. He really enjoyed it.
Randy: She’s a rockin’ country girl. She put her own spin on it. She is beyond ready and that was amazing.
