American Idol 2012 top 5 contestant Skylar Laine is a country star in the making for sure, but can she take home the grand prize this season to boost her claim to fame?

With the roaring success of previous American Idol country singers like Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler, I am betting Skylar Laine will have no problem having a great career following the show, but she would probably love to take home that fat American Idol 2012 winning title to help her along.

Going into the American Idol 2012 top 5 performances this week, the rankings for Skylar Laine varied widely across the Net. Some predict she will end up in the bottom two this week, while others believe she’ll make it all the way to the finals. So how did she do on Wednesday night? Check out her first song of the evening and let us know what you think!
