American Idol Hopeful Arrested During Auditions, But Plans To Head To The Voice Next

Every year on American Idol on FOX, we watch as hopeful contestants storm off the stage in anger, but this season, one hopeful has taken it to the extreme. Reports say that one hopeful was actually arrested during the season eleven auditions. What happened during the auditions that would cause someone to get arrested? Read on for more…

American Idol’s season eleven auditions are well underway, and according to local news sources, a Pittsburgh woman has ended up in the slammer due to her persistence to be on the show. Police say that Brittany Acosta was not supposed to be at the auditions taking place at the Pittsburgh Convention center last week, and when they asked her to leave she “refused to leave and became combative.” Now the hopeful is being charged with trespassing and resisting arrest. Brittany Acosta admitted to reporters that she had been traveling to city after city in an attempt to pursue her singing career, claiming: “I have a stack this big of airline tickets. I’ve been to California everywhere. I’ve been to Texas. I’ve been to Arizona. St. Louis. I’ve been to Denver, Colo., here, New York – I can keep going.”

Acosta told reporters though that she was told by one staff member that she was not trespassing, and once that person left, she was arrested. She has denied police claims that she said: “I’m not leaving, this is my dream, my life is ruined.” While Brittany Acosta will not be the next American Idol, she did claim that she received a callback for NBC’s The Voice instead. Acosta claims: “I think it’s going to be better anyways. Christina Aguilera is from here, so I’d like to compare myself to her, and I love her.” Somehow we doubt Christina Aguilera will be impressed with the arrested hopeful.
