    Maybe the Rock/Pop/Indy world should learn how to nurture young talent, from wherever it comes, as the Country world seems to be doing with both Lauren and  Scotty.

    Nicely done.  Lauren looks good and didn’t “countrify” this song (which is good for me lol ). Lauren has looked good since coming off the Idol tour. It makes me wonder if those horrid ‘tutu” dresses were the idea of the AI tour stylists?

    Lauren did an amazing job with this song and looked great too. Here’s a short video of her singing a medley of christmas songs at The Grove on Sunday :

    I think being now closer to her natural weight gives her a wider range of dresses to chose from.

    WOW ! Go Lauren !

    She sings amazingly and she looks so elegant and pretty.
    And yes, that she does not countrify the song which is a big deal I think.
    One of the advantage of Carrie at the beginning right after she won Idol, I think was because Carrie did not countrify every songs so that she got invited to sing in all kind of programs on TV. That makes her so diverse and was exposed to so many more people.

    I hope that Lauren got to do more like that.
    I can’t wait to see her on TV.

    Still the same Lauren w/ breathing issues but I agree she sang it beautifully. Not my favorite version thou; didn’t give me chills.

    I went back to listen to Kelly Clarksons version and she has the same “breathing issues ” at the start of the song.   I remember one of Dia Framptons performances on the Voice man it was all sucking wind but no one ever commented.  So I guess she was lucky not to get tagged with that problem.  I find Lauren’s breathing no worse then most artist I listen to and I bet she will improve over time.
