It was an unfortunate night for Skylar Laine on “American Idol.”

The 18-year-old country rocker from Brandon, Miss., who imbued Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Fortunate Son” and Dusty Springfield’s “Say You Love Me” with her twangy sensibilities on Wednesday’s show was revealed to have received the fewest viewer votes Thursday on the Fox singing contest.

Laine was joined at the bottom by Hollie Cavanagh, the 18-year-old balladeer from McKinney, Texas, who opened Wednesday’s installment with a pop-infused take on Ike and Tina Turner’s “River Deep Mountain High,” and later dialed it down with the Leona Lewis hit “Bleeding Love.”

The “American Idol” judges didn’t stutter: Jessica Sanchez “ain’t going home.”

The 16-year-old high school student from San Diego who powered through the Jazmine Sullivan ballad “Stuttering” on Wednesday, was revealed to have received the fewest viewer votes on Thursday, but the “Idol” judges unanimously decided to save Sanchez before she could even finish her last-chance performance of Deborah Cox’s “Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here.”

Season 11 of “American Idol” kicked off in Savannah, GA last night with a flashy new set with “IDOL” spelled out in white neon lights–and the return of judges Steven TylerJennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson.

Right out of the gate, the judges were knocked out by an exceptionally confident 17-year-old with his rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Never Can Say Goodbye.”

“He looks like he’s 12,” opined Lopez. “Like a young Michael,” marveled Jackson. View full article »
