WATCH Livingston's Laine Hardy's Jam Session With Idol Friend Alejandro!

When I visited with Livingston's Laine Hardy shorty after Disney Week on American Idol, he told me about the friendships that have been created with other contestants. But there was one that stood out. This was a special bond between Laine and Alejandro Aranda from Pomona, CA. Some might have said this would be an unlikely close friendship pairing, but there was a real Bayou connection with this dishwasher who had never even been in the South.

Just think about it. Both young men have a very humble, gentle spirit. Both play a sweet acoustic guitar. Both write, and both can SING. We just think Laine is a little bit better. But that doesn't matter. Not to Laine.

"Me and Alejandro...we're like really the closest," Laine told me on my recent podcast. This is not just from a Top 3 perspective, either. "He's a really cool guy. He reminds me of a native of Louisiana. He already told me he wants to come gator hunting and stuff." Maybe that "stuff" could include a special intimate acoustic concert after Laine wins Idol? After seeing and hearing this sample below, we can only hope.
