Lauren Alaina's American Idol Season 10 Highlights collects five of the runner-up's best performances during the 2011 season of the popular Fox vocal competition.
A likable singer with a sweet but powerful voice, Alaina -- as with winner Scotty McCreery -- favored a contemporary country style.
Not surprisingly, most of the songs here are in a country vein and should appeal to fans of such similarly inclined artists as former Amidol winner Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, and others.
Unfortunately, not included here are any of the duets Alaina and McCreery performed during the season, like "American Honey" and "I Told You So." What you do get are such songs as Alaina's take on the Miley Cyrus track "The Climb," Faith Hill's "Wild One," and the ballad "Like My Mother Does.".
