Laci Kaye Booth made it to the final five on the ABC revival of “American Idol” only after Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie used their one judges save of the season to throw her a lifeline at the end of the Top 6 episode on May 5. She had landed in the bottom two of the public vote but the trio of judges opted for her over Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon. This 23-year-old college student from Livingston Texas has sung nine songs to date on this reality competition series. Which of these has been your favorite so far? Vote in our poll below and then sound off in our comments section with your thoughts on this reboot of “American Idol.”
Do you think that Laci lit up most with one of the two tunes she performed on that May 5 episode that won her that all-important save from the judges? Those songs were by The Bee Gees (“To Love Somebody”) and Journey (“”Open Arms””). Or was it her first time to solo when made the Ray Charles classic “Georgia on My Mind” her own? Perhaps you favor one of the five other songs he has sung in the competition so far.
Take a look at her set list below and then weigh in with your pick.
