We are seeing some familiar faces return to American Idol 2019, including Laine Hardy on American Idol last night. Laine made the Top 50 last season, but supposedly only returned to the show to ply guitar for his best friend’s sister Ashton Gill during her American Idol Season 17 audition. As it turns out, they both walked out of the room with a ticket to Hollywood! Check out their auditions below in our American Idol 2019 spoilers!

American Idol 2019 Spoilers - Laine Hardy Returns to Idol

For the audition, Laine came in and the judges (Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie) were all loving on Laine. They were noticing the new grill and he even had merchandise! They talked to him more than Ashton, as they found out he has a new girlfriend now and they joked how he has gone all Hollywood.

He was just there to play guitar for Ashton, who happens to be his best friend’s sister. I mean, if you have connections girl, use them! She has a strong country voice, but did get pitchy in parts. She had some very good notes in there and the judges seemed to really enjoy her. They felt that song selection was going to be key for her and she had to work on some other things, but she could do that in Hollywood, as they gave her her ticket.

This was when they questioned why Laine wasn’t auditioning again and wanted him to sing them out. So, he broke into his own song and the judges were shocked. Since last season, they said he gained so much confidence and that is what he liked last year. Katy said he could win this thing, as they gave him the olive branch and offered him a ticket to Hollywood, which he accepted eventually!
