Lauren Alaina was turned down by ‘America’s Got Talent’ — twice

While Lauren Alaina came very close to winning this season’s “American Idol,” she didn’t get far on another singing competition.

On Thursday’s “Tonight Show,” fellow guest Piers Morgan told the 16-year-old, “I thought you were the better singer.”

“Do you want to hear something funny?” she asked the CNN host. Alaina said she auditioned for his show, “America’s Got Talent,” twice (!) and didn’t make it past the first round. Morgan was visibly embarrassed. The lesson? “For all the people that try out for ‘America’s Got Talent’ and don’t make it — try out for ‘American Idol’ instead.”
