Brittany Banta There’s my baby brother!!! You did amazing even considering you had the flu…strep…and a double ear infection. I’m so proud of you!!!
Kaitlin Normand I’m not going to state opinion here; I’m going to state facts. The night these pics of the potential idols were posted on the official AI page, even tho the judges are still fawning over Trevor as a “crowd favorite”, I just want everyone to notice that Laine Hardy had DOUBLE the amount of likes and comments over Trevor. If AMERICAN IDOL is truly a show where the AMERICAN people get to vote on who’s the next big thing—
I hope the judges can wake up and see that AMERICA has already spoken. Laine Hardy’s numbers are top notch and as a TV network, if you’re after views, this kid will deliver. His numbers are consistently high, and I do not believe his entire performance was as “rocky” as this 30 second clip is leading us to believe. Now as a matter of personal opinion as opposed to fact, I haven’t watched American Idol in years. To me, it had lost its spark and authenticity. Laine Hardy has singlehandedly become the reason I’m even keeping up with this show now and bothering to crunch the numbers in the first place. He’s the real deal. Not another cringe-worthy pop-boy-band style artist, but one rooted in soul/rock revival.
