Skylar Laine sings a plain song well on 'American Idol'

Skylar Laine next on "American Idol," wanted to sing Bonnie Raitt's "Love Sneakin's Up on You" -- and stands her ground despite mentor Jimmy Iovine and guest mentor will.i.am's attempts to talk her out of it. They didn't think there was enough song there for her to show off her range.

This is about the only time all night they've been right -- the song just isn't that good. She sings it well because she has real skills, but except for the last line, the performance does nothing to showcase her talent.

"I just love the way you sing," says Steven Tyler. Jennifer Lopez says "you really killed that, didn't love that the song didn't have more of a chorus, but you did your thing, you did that country thing."

Randy Jackson says "didn't matter about the song, you did it well." Yeah, but nothing memorable. She's not pushing herself or doing anything interesting.
