Skylar Laine Eliminated on ‘American Idol’

Skylar Laine

Skylar Laine was eliminated on tonight’s (May 3) episode of ‘American Idol,’ leaving only four contestants gunning for the Season 11 crown.

Laine and belter Hollie Cavanagh were camped out at the bottom, even though mentor Jimmy Iovine of Interscope Records felt that Laine was weak where Cavanagh was strong last night.

It had seemed like she was emerging as a frontrunner to win the whole thing. But her song choices last night didn’t work for America.

Overall, though, she was gracious in defeat, grabbing the mic to turn in a high-octane rendition of Miranda Lambert‘s ‘Gunpowder & Lead’ as her final performance and to close our her stint on the show. Again, we’re left scratching our heads about this elimination.

We also have to give Skylar props, since she was able to be a pro and performed merely minutes after finding out she was booted from the show. That takes strength and courage.

And now there are four …
