Lauren Alaina to Return to ‘American Idol’ This Season
Lauren Alaina will once again hit the ‘American Idol‘ stage where her dreams of country stardom first came into focus. Alaina is joining other past ‘Idol’ contestants-turned-celebrities who will perform on an upcoming episode in Season 11. Others taking the iconic stage soon are Chris Daughtry, Adam Lambert and James Durbin.
Daughtry, who became famous as a result of his success on Season 5, will actually use his performance time on the March 15 show to debut the new single ‘Outta My Head’ from his record ‘Break the Spell.’ For her part, though we don’t yet know which on episode Alaina will appear, the ‘Georgia Peaches’ singer is hoping to just stay relevant, and has been touring as a part of Jason Aldean‘s My Kinda Party Tour.
“I’m just trying to get my name out there a little bit more and be able to perform as much as I can,” she told Taste of Country before heading out on the road for the big tour.
The emerging country starlet recently filmed an episode of ‘Day Jobs,’ a show on Great American Country that shows how stars made a living before music paid the bills. Alaina returned to her high school job at Cici’s Pizza in Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., where she showed viewers how she used to serve pizza after school. Watch for Alaina’s ‘Idol’ appearance this season and her ‘Day Jobs’ appearance sometime between April and May.
