On American Idol, Laine Hardy delivered his own rendition of “Fire Away” by Chris Stapleton for his Hollywood week solo performance. Hardy learned to play guitar when he was 7-years-old with the help of a First Act instrument his mother purchased from Walmart. Encouraged by his family, Hardy says he continued to practice guitar and to try to develop his singing voice.

American Idol will make its highly anticipated return to television as superstar judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie set out on a journey across the nation to discover a new crop of inspiring talent with a touch of Disney magic, as it premieres its first season at its new home on America’s network, The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand. Emmy® Award-winning host and producer Ryan Seacrest, who represents the heart and soul of the show, returns as host of the beloved series to walk with these Idol hopefuls through this adventure toward stardom.
When American Idol debuted in the U.S., the series revolutionized television, pioneering the reality-competition genre and holding an unmatched record for being the highest-rated series for nearly a decade. The series also ushered in second-screen audience participation, being the first to introduce text-based and mobile voting. The Idol format has taken on original versions in 53 countries around the world, and American Idol itself has played to a worldwide audience of over 460 million across 53 countries. To date, American Idol has earned 57 Emmy nominations and eight wins.
