Fact of the Day: Famous American Idol Rejects

While the American Idol reality show produced a good number of famous singers like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, they did turn a good number of people away in the very early rounds who later found careers in the music industry. Some of the rejects included Colbie Caillat, Hillary Scott, Mary Lambert, Amber Riley, and Naya Rivera.

  2. I only watch American Idol during the audition phases of the show, and seeing this list shows how important it is to never give up on your dreams. Those rejections changed their lives, but a few have suffered in their personal lives like Rivera with her domestic violence arrest and filing for divorce, and Mary Lambert who was molested by her own father as a young girl. So sad. Hugs...RO

  7. That's the conceit of American Idol. That one needs to "win" to prove their worth. The world of show biz is populated by big stars who early in their careers lost talent contests, beauty contests, etc.

  8. Don't forget Jennifer Hudson, who only came in sixth yet later won an Oscar.
