Lauren Alaina Thankful Her 15-Year Old Self Tried Out For American Idol

Lauren Alaina Thankful Her 15-Year Old Self Tried Out For American Idol

It was 10 years ago this week that Lauren Alaina‘s life changed with one audition.

With inspiration from her cousin Holly, 15-year old Lauren headed in front of the American Idol judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steve Tyler and completely wowed them.

Lauren shares, “I can hardly sandal the fact that ten years ago my life completely flip flopped (in more ways than one). I wish I could give this scrunchy-haired, rainbow dressing, waist belting and flip flop wearing 15 year old girl the biggest hug in the world. Her braveness on January 27th, 2011 has given me everything I have now.”

After getting 3 “yes” votes, and her ticket punched to Hollywood, Lauren brought her family in the audition room, and performed an impromptu debut with Steven Tyler – singing her parents’ favorite Aerosmith song “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.”

Watch the moment unfold right here…
