Lauren Alaina: The Next American Idol?

by at . Comments

What do you get when you cross an emotional backstory with a cute personality and an incredible singing voice?

Lauren Alaina, a 15-year old from Georgia who auditioned for American Idol in Nashville and immediately told the judges that she was inspired by her cousin Holly, a brain tumor victim for whom Alaina had organized a number of fundraisers.

As was the case with Chris Medina, was this final audition of the night planned to manipulate the audience? Of course. But that didn't make Lauren's voice any less beautiful or her story any less true. She sang both a Faith Hill single and an Aerosmith single and we have a feeling we'll be hearing from her in Hollywood:

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
