Lauren Alaina: American Idol 2011 Winner?

After baiting the public by tweeting about a “really talented” 15-year old singer that ‘American Idol’ producer Nigel Lythgoe had found, she was finally revealed to the masses on the January 27th episode of the television show.

Lauren Alaina was one of the last of the Nashville contestants to be shown, but the singer did not disappoint, with many people comparing her to the winner of season 1, Kelly Clarkson.

Alaina told the story of her cousin Holly, who suffered from a brain tumor and inspired her to sing.

As judge Randy Jackson told Alaina that she was the “best we’ve seen today”, tears began to roll down the singer’s face. Steven Tyler, another judge then told her, “I think you should cry, cos you’re going to make 40 million people cry.”

Jennifer Lopez also chimed in, saying, “I can’t wait to see you again.”

She was not the only singer with an inspirational story.

Chelsee Oaks and Rob Bolin were two singers who used to date, however they broke up and Oaks has since moved.

They auditioned together, and were given a unanimous vote through to Hollywood. When they left, Lopez said, “They’re gonna get back together.”
