Skylar Laine returns home after ‘American Idol’ run

JACKSON — “American Idol” contestant Skylar Laine is back home in Brandon, for a few days.

A crowd of family, friends and hometown fans greeted her Wednesday at the Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport in Jackson.

Laine made it to the show’s Top 5 before being voted out last week. She says it’s great to be home, and she’s looking forward to driving and to sleeping in her own bed.

Laine is scheduled to sing the national anthem and throw the first pitch at the Mississippi Braves game today at Trustmark Park in Pearl. She has two performances Saturday evening — 7 p.m. at Flowood Family Festival, and 8 p.m. at Brandon Day.

She returns to Hollywood on Sunday to rehearse for the May 23 finale and the Idol Top 10 tour.
