Laine Hardy Performs 'That's All Right' By Elvis Presley On American Idol

American Idol contestant Laine Hardy performs a unique rendition of the Elvis Presley classic, ‘That’s All Right.’

Laine is currently in the Top 14 of the popular singing competition. He auditioned last season, but was eliminated in the early rounds.

Now, he’s back and better than ever as he vies for the coveted winner’s title. Tonight, this country guy is channeling his inner blues-rocker with this Elvis performance.

“Well, that's all right, mama
That's all right for you
That's all right mama, just anyway you do
Well, that's all right, that's all right
That's all right now mama, anyway you do”

As soon as Laine starts singing the iconic lyrics of ‘That’s All Right’ the crowd starts to clap along. With slicked back hair, he strums along on his guitar without missing a note. Even the judges were on their feet for this upbeat performance from the 18-year-old returnee.

After the song, judge Katy Perry said, “You know your strengths and you’re playing them well. It’s so exciting to see you grow.” Each judge had words of praise for the young singer and encouraged him to let loose on the stage and have fun.

He’s made it all the way to the Top 14, but Laine almost didn’t audition this year. After playing guitar for a childhood friend during her initial audition, the judges requested that Laine sing too. That’s when he earned his second ticket to Hollywood.

Now, this entertaining performer is well on his way to beating out the rest of the competition. Only time will tell if Laine has what it takes, but I’m certainly looking forward to his next performance.
