Lauren Alaina gets "If I Die Young" picked for her by mentor Jimmy Iovine on "American Idol." She says she loves the song.
Hmm, it's a very good choice. From the get-go, she seems comfortable and the song comes soaring out of her.
This may be her best performance on the show this year. She seems relaxed, and happy. She seems like a star for the first time . . . she has that look.
Jennifer Lopez talks about her "magical tone," and liked her emotion. Randy Jackson notes some stumbles and pitch issues, Steven Tyler gushes over her as always.
