It's officially the year of the sick contestant on "American Idol," Sklyar Laine was sick at the hotel the night before, now powering through The Band Perry's "You Lie."
Classic country voice, lots of energy, almost spastic; "reminds me of Reba McEntire" says Jennifer Lopez to Steven Tyler.
Tyler tells her afterwards, "one of the best performances I've seen all day." For sure, she has some sort of interesting x-factor; could be finalist, or annoying.
Rachelle Lamb also going country, singing Miranda Lambert's "The House That Built Me" -- then stops a few seconds in, "I think I just messed up," wasn't in synch with the music. Starts again, is pretty good, actually.
Adam Brock next, says "I think it's time for 'American Idol' to have some white chocolate up here." Doing "Georgia on My Mind" -- real emotion there, nice growly tone; not amazing, but much better than expected.
Randy Jackson asks him about the handkerchief he's got; it's his grandfather's, who passed away.
