Skylar Laine's boyfriend during her time on 'American Idol' has pleaded guilty to a federal hate crime. Joseph Dominick, 21, was charged with targeting and injuring African Americans by throwing beer bottles and shooting metal ball bearings at them.
Skylar Laine got the boot from ‘American Idol’ last week, but she’s not letting anything get in the way of her country music dreams. Rumor has it that country music’s newest talent has signed a record deal and that she’s moving to Music City to launch her career.
Country’s newest darling Skylar Laine was sent packing on Season 11 of ‘American Idol‘ on Thursday (May 3), effectively ending the hope that a country artist would take the baton from Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery and start a consecutive streak on the reality competition series. Laine wasn’t crushed by being voted off, instead claiming she had a “gut feeling” that the end was near.
Just when judges were beginning to believe 18-year-old country cutie Skylar Laine could win ‘American Idol,’ viewers sent her home. The Brandon, Miss. native was eliminated on Thursday night, receiving the fewest votes of the remaining five contestants.
Wednesday night (April 11) marked the night of the Top 7 on ‘American Idol,’ and first up to the stage was country crowd-pleaser Skylar Laine with Kellie Pickler’s hit Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You.’
Time and distance will stretch the fabric of any relationship. Time, distance and fame … that can be a back breaker. However, 20-year-old Joseph Dominick doesn’t seem concerned about losing his famous girlfriend while she sings for her television life on the ‘American Idol’ stage. He’s been with Skylar Laine for three years — long enough to know that a woman needs some space.
One minute she’s serving sandwiches at the Beatty Street Grocery, the next she’s protected by an entourage, sashaying the streets of Nashville in high heels and a revealing mini. That’s a scenario the parents of 18-year-old ‘American Idol‘ contestant Skylar Laine are asking God to protect the singer from.
Ever since we first met Skylar Laine, her ‘American Idol‘ performances have exploded like rock-infused country music firecrackers. She stomps around the stage, with a spring in her step and a twang in her voice like a mini Reba. While we love when she does her thang, it was time for us to see and hear something different and new from her.
