American Idol's Lauren Alaina Puts a Country Spin on "Candle in the Wind" on Top 11 Revived

Lauren Alaina, American Idol Season 10's Southern Belle, put a slight Country Music spin on "Candle in the Wind", the best-selling single in Billboard history. Idol contestants take on classics by the legendary Sir Elton John in this week's 'Top 11 Revived' Show.

""Candle in the Wind" was so great the first time it came out, that I didn't want to stray too far away from it," says Lauren. Lauren didn't mess with this classic. She stayed true to the original arrangement, and made it Country solely by the southern lilts and twangs of her voice.

Lauren took the stage looking GORGEOUS! This is the best she's ever looked. Bravo! Very solid vocal performance; Lauren could release this as a single right now, and it would get huge radio play as Country tear-jerker. Randy Jackson enthused, "That’s one of the greatest Lauren Alaina songs ever on the Idol stage. Very, very nice. Very sensitive. You can do anything. Just believe. Very hot." Steven Tyler's been wild about Lauren since her audition. "I’ve loved you since the first moment you laid eyes on me. That was just perfect. You keep singing like that and you’ll be able to afford the rest of that dress." Jennifer Lopez loved it too. "That was amazing. You were gorgeous, you sounded gorgeous. That was it baby. That was amazing."
