'American Idol' Alum Laine Hardy Is Back For Another Shot At Stardom

By

We love a good comeback story! According to American Idol insiders, Laine Hardy — the Louisiana teen who won fans over last season with his rendition of Band of Heathen’s "Hurricane" — is auditioning again for the singing competition in an effort to make it further than he did in 2018.

After successfully securing a ticket to Hollywood during Season 16, the then high school senior lasted three weeks before he was eliminated during the "Final Judgment" episode. 

"This whole American Idol journey has given me opportunities to be a different person, because I’m a shy person," Laine said following his elimination. "It’s helped me kind of get out of that shyness a little bit."
