Skylar Laine

530f073f601bc7d39d2f48225fd7307e.jpg

There were a few different ways I almost went with this cut, but I ended up landing on Skylar. While I do like her, I just don't need to see her in the endgame personally. I was stuck between three contestants, and the other two have more memorable performances or moments to me. So despite being a country girl, I was shockingly into Skylar. Maybe it was just because I like S11 so much idk. But she was just so energetic and so fun. Despite only being 16 years old, Skylar had a crazy amount of stage presence. She came out of the gate really strong with her performance of "Stay With Me". It was a really fun performance that she sang really well. Other standout performances of hers for me are "Gunpowder and Lead", "Wind Beneath My Wings", and "The Show Must Go On". While I found Skylar's shtick to be really fun at first, I did think she became a bit predictable as the weeks went on. S11 is such an amazing season, and at a certain point she started to become outmatched. While I do think she should've beat Hollie, I would've liked to have seen Elise and probably Colton beat Skylar as I think they were more deserving. Nevertheless, this isn't an anti-Skylar cut, mainly just pro-everybody else left in the game.

“Unlikable.” WHERE.

 

WOW. I am appalled at Fantasia being robbed like that. Yikes. 
 

I still think she has the single best performance on AI ever. She has the respect of Legends like Patti LaBelle and Aretha Franklin. LOL. That cannot be said for pretty much anybody else from this series.

 

Gross.

Is it bad that I can’t let myself call this the best AI performance ever, only due to that weird demonic feedback that comes out of nowhere in the middle of the performance? Lol

It was Candice Glover exorcising the demons of the KLC prophecy away the stage :giggle: I saw it on the Idol tour and had actual goosebumps after she finished it.

 

Though while I'd say it's Candice's best performance, my own personal favourite of hers was the finale reprise of I Who Have Nothing because I'm a sucker for someone doing a cappella and slaying:

I nominate @Solaris to take the floor.

 

The floor? Can I take to the couch instead?

I believe they said was someone in the audience standing too close to a boom mic that had been flipped on accidentally.

Both flawless. “Lovesong” particularly so.
