American Idol sent the Brandon, MS native, Skylar, home last night. Skylar was the contestant with the country music roots that could rock any song. She has been outstanding in her performances and has made few mistakes. However, she was the contestant that received the lowest amount of votes and was sent home on May 3, 2012. Do you think the voters got it right? Why or why not?

Hi Kareng, Skylar is one of my favorites and it saddens me that she was sent home. I agree that Skylar can rock any song and that is one talent that is very rare. However it's America who gets to decide who should stay and who should go, so be it. I am sure that with such great talent, Skylar will be gracing the music industry eventually.

I think Skylar will be on the fast track just like Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreary from last year. We will hear a new single very soon. She will probably have a choice of which record label to sign with also.

I am sorry but i think the judges should of fought for her, given her a second chance she is awesome for her age and she does such a wonderful way of expressing herself. She goes out there to give a performance and does it well. I am thinking i would of chose jesse to go home. I don't think it was fair skylar went home.

Unfortunately the judges had already used their saves. Skylar went home because she didn't get enough votes. It's ok, she will have an awesome career in country music. She's got everything going for her.

I agree with LetranKnight25. Skylar is one of the best contestants. Well I think they all are. They all sing very well and like a pro. However, the one who has the lowest number of votes will go home. And it only happens that Skylar's family and supporters didn't vote too much that's why she was sent home. It is about the numbers. The frequency of voting. So it's just a lesson learned that you can't just sit back and relax and wait for the results because one person can save any of the contestants with hundreds of vote. So let us vote non-stop for our bets. :)

I am in total agreement that they are all very good. I know Skylar will have a great career ahead of her in country music. She has the talent and drive. After American Idol Tour ends, I'm sure she will have landed a recording deal by then. We will be hearing from her again and it will be soon!

Hello Kareng, I don't know if i can explain this right, but definitely every one has it's favorite. let me just tell you that i thought All this time it would be Jessica and Phillipp since dial idol had proven once accurate when Elise got voted out. First, I think Hollie got a strong ground in making up for her past mistakes in her performances now the judges believe she has a strong voice and giving her compliments. Joshua Ledet had a 13 Standing Ovation from the Judges showing relentlessly that he is the favorite, but it seemed not affected by the audience. Phillipp has a strong fan base and made some good points but Jimmy said the second song sucks. Jessica, my favorite never cease to surprise me, though people think she's a robot, boring, overhype and all am sure not all americans think of that. i think the campaign for my favorite has been on going all along. I don't know how skylar ended up being eliminated but i think she didn't have enough votes, that's all. but her being best is undeniable.

One thing I thought of was that Skylar lost out on votes from those people who are not into country. However, that sure proved wrong when Carrie Underwood won Season 5. Just goes to show us all once again that anything and everything can happen!

Young girls voting for Phillip Phillip because he is "cute" and they have a crush on him but once he won this show, they wont give a damn and wont buy his album. wasnt that the pattern in the last 5 years. Hollie I think gets more support from Southern States. Joshua gets the african American vote and Jessica gets a Filipino American communitu vote. Then Colton fans are voting againts skylar....cos of the dating rumors, she doesnt date Colton but female fans are jelous.

I think Skylar was the best choice. She was very good but not consistant enough at this point in the competition. Any elimination would have been difficult, they are a bunch of talented kids.
