Spoilers, 2019 American Idol, Laine Hardy
Spoilers came out a while back, that one of the contestants seen running down to the sea who got through to the Season 17 Top 20, was Laine Hardy. It was a photo taken during the filming at the Disney Aulani Resort and Spa in Honolulu. Additionally, a leaked video on YouTube also showed Laine. It was titled AMERICAN IDOL – KO OLINA, HAWAII – 2019. If he was in the Top 20, nobody should be surprised as he showed remarkable talent last year.
Laine got sent home in the 16th season after the Top 50 tried out for the Top 24. Unfortunately, his voice showed signs of strain and the judges had to let him go. Nevertheless, his excellent charisma and talent could be the reason why the judges allowed him back this year. Now, it emerged via American Idol Net, that Laine Hardy likely made it through to the Top 14, in the upcoming season.
Evelyn Cormier of 90 Day Fiance gets through
The same photo that revealed Laine Hardy in the Top 20 of Season 17, also showed Evelyn Cormier, from 90 Day Fiance. Fans of the show know that she loves music as it featured quite a bit during her time with TLC. Now, according to new spoilers, it seems that she also made it through to the Top 14 of Season 17 of American Idol.
It will be interesting to see her perform in the show, and possibly, fans of 90 Day Fiance will cheer her on. Fans knew she auditioned for the show as she shared the news on her Instagram. TV Shows Ace noted at the time, “This show is something that could change Evelyn Cormier’s entire life.”
Other spoilers say that returnee Alyssa Raghu, who make it to the top 24 last year, is back and through to the Top 14 as well.
