Lauren Alaina proved herself in American Idol; she was a runner up, however she was not so lucky in America's Got Talent show. On the show With Jay Leno Thursday, the country singer revealed she tried out for America's Got Talent twice, and was rejected both times.
"Are you serious?" said an incredulous Piers Morgan, who judges that show and was also a guest of Leno's. "You applied twice? You didn't come in front of the judges?" he asked her. "This is a scandal!"
Joked Alaina: "So, for all the people out there who try out for America's Got Talent and don't make it...try Idol!" Replied Morgan, "That is so embarrassing!"
Idol winner, McCreery said he thought it could have gone either way after the final performance show of American Idol. "Last night, watching her sing I thought she could really take this thing and run a long way with it," he said Wednesday. "In that moment I kept saying, 'Lauren's got this. She's such a sweetheart, and we've grown so close.'"
Lauren said after the finale of American Idol: "I didn't lose; I came in second place."
