Laine Hardy is one of a few immensely talented artists who won the American Idol title in an approaching season despite being eliminated from an earlier season of the show.
Laine came first during the American Idol season 2 finale in May 2019. Initially, he had caught the judges’ eye in 2018’s audition. But then, because he lacked confidence, the judges hoped for, he was dismissed before he could even become one of “Top 50.”
Below, in the writing, know more of him, personally and professionally.
Where Is Laine Hardy Now?
Laine Hardy also had a memorable presence in the next coming season of the American Idol i.e. in season 2 (a.k.a season 20).
He attended the show’s Premiere Event and had a fun time with judge, “old friend”, Lionel Richie. It seemed Laine was to get involved with the TV program, also in more ways.
About this he said:
I’m really excited to get back on the show. Idol has been nothing but good to me. It will be nice to connect to the fans again. I talked to the judges at a premiere event in California a while back. They were asking how I was doing. It’s the same old, same old. They are really good people. I appreciate them.
Over the past few weeks, amid Coronavirus pandemic, not being able to be on the road, Laine and his team decided to do a virtual tour across more than 15 online stops.
Laine said this gave him the chance to connect with fans and update them on his life and what he was up to.
On 23rd March 2020, he wrote on his Instagram, among 621k followers, that he had been “quarantining and spending time with family and friends”. He continued:
Came on here to say my music is going to be released very soon and I will start posting details on that very soon! The wait is almost over! Y’all be safe!
