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 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.
"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.
