Lauren Alaina Tells Piers Morgan 'America's Got Talent' Turned Her Down Twice (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted May 27th 2011 4:37AM
Piers Morgan and Lauren Alaina on 'The Tonight Show''American Idol' runner-up Lauren Alaina stopped by 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) and revealed some shocking news about her previous attempts to enter a TV singing contest.

Host Jay Leno and fellow guest Piers Morgan began by asking Lauren about her relationship with 'Idol' champ Scotty McCreery. After insisting that they're just friends, Lauren summed-up the situation: "Everyone wants us to like each other but we just can't seem to do it!"

Then, discussing this week's 'American Idol' finale, Morgan spoke from experience as a veteran competition show judge and told Lauren: "I thought you were the better singer."

And that's when she landed the zinger. "I tried out for your show and didn't get it. Twice!" As Morgan reeled in surprise, she repeated that yes, she auditioned for 'America's Got Talent' -- not just once, but twice -- and "I didn't make it past the first round."

As Morgan covered his face with his hands and declared it "a scandal" and "so embarrassing," Lauren had some good advice for the folks at home: "For all the people that try out for 'America's Got Talent' and don't make it -- try out for 'American Idol' instead!"

Wise words, indeed. And from the look on Morgan's face, we're betting that heads will roll once he makes it back to the 'AGT' office.

Jeff Layton - perfectly put, I so agree. Lauren is a teenage gal with a lot of talent. Yes, Haley was very good. It was her attitude towards the end that did her in. That is where she lost her votes. And as far as Scotty being the best singer of them all, I don't agree. But it is what it is. American Idol's voting system needs to improve. The majority of votes come from 13-17 year old girls, alas Scotty becomes the winner. He is talented no doubt, but James, Haley and yes, even Lauren should of been crowned American Idol this season....JMO.

I think Scottie is the better singer.........and I thought Haley was a better singer than Lauren, and that Haley should have beat Lauren out.......as she is different and sexy and has more personality.................

The only problem with her statement that if you can't get on AGT to try AI, is that AI has an AGE LIMIT on it that AGT doesn't have. So for those of us, like me, who were already above the age limit when AI started, AGT was the only other option. I've heard that X-Factor doesn't have an age limit so that might be another chance for us "old" singers.
