For ’80s week on “American Idol,” Skylar Laine took (what we thought was) a big risk in choosing Bette Midler’s huge hit “Wind Beneath My Wings.” Turns out Skylar has kind of been hiding her light under a bushel basket. Seriously, where has that voice been?
The judges gave her a standing ovation, with Jennifer Lopez wiping tears away. J.Lo said of the song, “You know what you just said to America with that performance, who I don’t know if they knew you could sing that way – do not count me out! … you just told them you can sing with the best of everybody who’s here.”
Absolutely. Well done, sweetheart. Will Skylar be getting your votes tonight, “Idol” fans?
