Skylar Laine melds country music, Lady Gaga on 'American Idol'

Skylar Laine is doing Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," the country version, next on "American Idol." Mentor Jimmy Iovine tells her to start thinking of herself as a front-runner.

Not a huge fan of the song, so doesn't make me want to stand up and shout, but Laine puts in a good performance, comfortable up on stage and emoting left and right and pumping out the energy.

"I love that version," says Jennifer Lopez, adding "a more perfect song for you does not exist." Steven Tyler says, "A lot of people out there with a drawl are going to love you to death."

Randy Jackson also thinks she has crossover appeal and is ready to hit the big-time, saying, "You are so beyond ready for me."
