matt lawrence american idol 'American Idol': Matt Lawrence has no 'Trouble' in Orlando“American Idol” found a great story of redemption in Matt Lawrence.

Country boy Matt Lawrence performed “Trouble” Tuesday night on “Idol” and really blew away the judges. He even earned a “brilliant” from Simon Cowell. Did you enjoy Matt as much as we did?

We hope he does well in Hollywood Week. He seems like a nice kid and he’s got a great country vibe going on, plus he will definitely get the Michael Sarver vote if he gets to the Top 24.

What did you think of Matt Lawrence? Think he has the chops to go all the way to the Top  12, like Kara said?
