Well, American Idol is finally being cancelled. So now’s a great time to look at 11 singers that were rejected by American Idol and then went on to make it big, including Colbie Caillat and Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum. Fact is most of the biggest music artists in history probably would have been rejected. I never saw anything creatively ground breaking come from that show or any other TV talent searches. Steven Tyler was pretty funny though.
