Former American Idol contestant Skylar Laine kicked off her post-elimination media tour with a quick stop on Live! With Kelly, where she performed Kelly Pickler’s “Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You.”

She belted the lovesick tune over a sparse piano melody, which wasn’t the most ideal accompaniment for such a powerful song. Although it didn’t hold the same epic quality as her gorgeous rendition on Idol, the simple arrangement still showcased Skylar’s potent vocal skills.

Following the performance, Kelly and guest host Michael Strahan peppered the 18-year-old singer with questions about everything from her musical background to the best advice she received while on Idol.
