This week brought us the season premiere of America’s Got Talent on NBC and also the revelation that American Idol season ten runner up, Lauren Alaina was actually rejected from the talent show – not once, but twice! How could anyone turn her down? Keep reading for all the details!
America’s Got Talent’s loss was American Idol’s gain as teen Country singer Lauren Alaina shared with Jay Leno this week how she was turned down for the talent show twice. As the 16 year old sat next to judge Piers Morgan on The Tonight Show she informed him that she was turned down for America’s Got Talent twice. Lauren stated “You denied me! I swear. Look it up… I didn’t make it past the first round.”
Piers Morgan, who initially told Lauren that she should have won over Scotty McCreery seemed genuinely surprised by the teen’s revelation and responded with “This is a scandal.This is now what Americans call – this is awkward. I’m going to get these producers! The moment this finishes, I’m getting them!” Lauren just laughed it off saying anyone who cannot get on America’s Got Talent can apply for American Idol instead. But the question remains – how could anyone turn away such a beautiful voice? We may never know, but in any event we bet that Lauren is going to be very successful no matter which show she came from!
