On American Idol, Layla Spring sang a strong cover of “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner for her American Idol 2018 Showcase performance. In the judgment session with chart toppers Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan, Bryan referred to Spring as “this little spark plug,” and Perry complimented her for learning from the guidance they gave her in previous rounds.
Country singer Spring is still in high school, and she’s doing her best to keep true to herself and her roots in Lebanon, Ky.

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.
