Lauren Alaina was the Idol who dropped by to visit Jay Leno on the Tonight Show rather than winner Scotty McCreery. Not sure what’s up with that–as the Idol winner was scheduled to appear today.
She was a delightful guest–her bagging on Piers Morgan after he told her she should have won was hilarious. You see, she was turned down TWICE by America’s Got Talent where Piers presides as judge. Ha. She was a great guest–it just seems like the girl could have used some more vocal rest!
Speaking of Lauren’s vocal troubles–when her voice went out during final rehearsals, she never believed for a minute she would not be competing that night. And as for Haley? Lauren says when producers asked her if she could step in, she said no.
Watch Lauren sit in with Rickey Minor and the Tonight Show band for a few numbers and then join Jay on the coach for a chat that also included a discussion of Big Mac Pizza–Lauren’s favorite!
I wonder if there’s some some sort of Mary-Kate and Ashley-like division of labor going on between Lauren and Scotty because they are both minors? California laws limit the number of hours they are permitted to work a day.
