Lauren Alaina came close to winning ‘American Idol‘ last season. But, WHO CARES, She’s doing JUST fine WITHOUT the title!! Last night she performed on Idol!!

Let’s hope that, this season's country faithful, Skylar Laine, was taking note.  They are cut from the same hunk of cheese, and Skylar could follow the same career path, if she plays it right.
