Video: Lauren Alaina Sings “Anyway” by Martina McBride on May 11

In the aftermath of the destruction caused by the tornado in Lauren Alaina’s hometown, she was inspired to sing “Anyway” by Martina McBride. The song was great for showing off her vocal range and had the judges nodding along. Steven Tyler led off, letting her know that her “pure and perfect” voice broke his heart. Interestingly, he loved the buckles on her shoes just as much. Jennifer Lopez complimented Lauren on taking last week’s advice and giving a strong performance. According to Randy Jackson, she’s back in it to win it. After receiving their comments, Lauren looked like she might cry from relief. Aw!

WATCH Lauren Alaina’s performance of “Flat on the Floor” by Carrie Underwood from last week’s episode.
