Uh-oh! What's all this about?!
America voted, and Skylar Laine got the boot!
Last night was a fantastic episode of America Idol (except for Skylar)!
The contestants were dwindled down from 5 to the final 4, AND Coldplay and Carrie Underwood rocked the house down!
The elimination of country singing Skylar was tough. She and her roommate/bff, Hollie Cavanagh, were in the final two (tears), leaving Phillip Phillips our choice as most likely to win.
Howeves, after the elimination show, Miz Laine impressed us with a gracious and positive perspective. She told cameras:
"It's OK! I'm not surprised. I'm just relieved that there's no pressure anymore. I mean, I'm sad, but I just want to go home to my family and friends and go mud-driving! That's the first thing I'm gonna do!"
At least the 18-year-old was comforted by all three judges after her elimination! That is, at least two of them… Skylar Laine reveals:
"Jennifer Lopez didn't say much to me at the end. She just said, 'See you later.' She was [short], but Steven [Tyler] is a known fan of mine, and him and Randy [Jackson] both told me I'll have a long career. I also heard that Carrie Underwood said to someone that the country music community has already welcomed me with open arms, and that means a lot to me."
Oh, don't take too much offense to J Lo honey!
She's been busy taking care of her 25-year-old boyfriend and the history-making release of her new music video for Follow the Leader over Twitter.
