American idol season 17 Hollywood week starts on Sunday & Monday ( March 24 & 25) at 8/7c on ABC with 40 contestants performances in front the Judges

As soon as she started singing Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried" for the judges, Katy Perry was immediately moved by Laci's performance, calling hers "the first voice we've heard that is really a diamond in the rough." Luke Bryan echoed her sentiment, saying Laci has "a timber in [her] voice that we haven’t seen in any girl in [her] lane last year."

 Katy had called the country singer a “diamond in the rough.” Laci does a bluesy version of the song on an acoustic guitar. This doesn’t sound very country? But it’s still a good arrangement! Her voice sounds a little rough. And it’s the beginning of the week. Still, love her rasp.

What song she will be singing tonight?

Back when I was playing music, I played shows with her dad. I met her, heard her voice and HAD to have her come sing on a song I had recorded, with me. She’s just as down to earth as she is talented. She deserves everything good that may come her way.

But that's no fluke, as Laci comes from a family of musicians and started singing around the age of 3. She began performing "around the house" and "in church," per her recent interview with ABC13 Houston. Around that time, her parents realized she was serious about pursuing music "because I was constantly singing, constantly," as she tells it.

Laci Kaye Booth shares an emotional reunion with her dad before her American Idol audition. She then performs "Mama Tried" by Merle Haggard in front of Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie and Katy Perry. See how she did!

Viewer react to Laci Kaye Booth American Idol Hollywood Week

Kristin Phillips Merrill At first I thought she was wearing a full body suit then I realized her skin was nearly the same color as her outfit. Then I was afraid dad was crying because she has liver damage (causing her jaundice) then I saw her palms and realized it was just self tanner, whew… I’ve been there, just never on national TV, poor girl. Love her voice, think she’ll do well she’s beautiful, no self tanner needed.

Kelli Eastepp Hughes Laci I literally do not think you could’ve made your hometown anymore proud than you did. You were fantastic but you always are! America she can sing and she is beautiful but the outside is nothing compared to her beauty on the inside. She is sweet and kind (which is more than what i can say for some people commenting) and humble and I’m so glad the rest of America gets to hear what we have been hearing for years.
