Lauren Alaina Sings "Any Man of Mine" on the Top 13 Show!

American Idol Season 10's Country Girl Lauren Alaina sings "Any Man of Mine" by Shania Twain on the Top 13 Show. AI contestants were asked to pick a song by their 'Idol' for tonight's performance. Lauren choose Shania Twain "because she's like a country music legend. She was the first female artist to kinda mix country and pop music together as one musical style. I choose "Any Man of Mine" cuz it's a really fun song and it can show off my personality...I'm gonna have a great time on stage with it."

Lauren Alaina had more 'fun' with it than the judges did. Steven Tyler, who praises almost anything said, “Gotta have a good song, I wished it had been more kick ass.” Jennifer Lopez agreed, “We want you to kick it into high gear. Now it’s time. Randy Jackson tried to soften the blow of the criticism, saying, “That’s a cool song, you sang it well…we want to see something that makes you shine beyond belief.” Lauren did not take the criticism well; but we'll excuse her for that since she's so young.

"Any Man of Mine" is a song by Canadian singer Shania Twain. It was the second single released from her 1995 album "The Woman in Me". The song became Twain's first number one hit on country radio sations, as well her first crossover hit after it cracked the Top 40 on the pop charts. The song was later included in Twain's 2004 "Greatest Hits". The song was also performed by Mandisa on the fifth season of American Idol and Siobhan Magnus on the ninth, but both were eliminated from the show the day after their performances.

"Any Man of Mine" also proved to be a critical success for Shania Twain; it was nominated for both Best Country Song and Best Female Country Vocal Performance at the 1996 Grammy Awards. It won Single of the Year at both the Canadian Country Music Awards and Country Music Radio Awards in 1995. It also won Country Single of the Year at the 1996 Jukebox Awards and Song of the Year at the 1996 RPM Big Country Music Awards.
