    Kane Brown is a country music destroyer. He's a terrible rapper!
    He's not even a country singer! He's just a bad rapper!! His collaboration with Khalid was the worst!
    Kane Brown is so overrated! He doesn't' have the voice!

  • Scott Cornelius

    As talented as everyone is on this show, we'll probably never hear from them outside the Idol window. I'm sure they'll show up to promote their single and after that, they'll be left with all the other winners.

    If his music career doesn't give him the kind of crazy American Idol status, he could definitely go A+ on films with that face value.

      @Tony Manero Look, Laine is not bad, but how are you going to market him? Country? He can't go around doing a bunch of Elvis / Chuck Berry covers.

      Frank Sanz talent is in the eye of the beholder! I like his style of music. WRONG! No, I don't even think he's that good looking! But then, I'm 48yrs not a teenage girl. I just like that style music better.

    Laine is shy, humble, sweet... despite his obvious and amazing talent. That's why he had my 30 votes every episode! Seems like a great guy all the way around and I hope that, despite his success, he stays that way. I'm fed up to here ⬆️ with self-absorbed celebs! Laine is a breath of fresh air! "Keep it real, Laine! Can't wait for your first album!" 🤩🤩🤩

    American Idol is not what it used to be anyway. That girl that won last year didn't make it and neither will he. The only people that have ever won American Idol that what it big are Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Scotty McCreery. He will made one CD and that will be it

    Congratulations, Laine!! Not only did you bring your very entertaining voice and stage presence and party atmosphere to the stage, but you also brought your interesting way of life back in Louisiana, which was very exciting for me to see. I like seeing what goes on in places I've never been. Best of luck to you 😊✌

    I remember his audition this year. He's not about to join, but the judges wanted him to sing a song and wanted him in. Boy, if he just rejected that golden ticket he will not be the idol. What a turn out of faith.
