With season 11 of ‘American Idol’ well on its way Fox is recruiting some of the more memorable Idol contestants from the past to come and perform on the Idol stage once again.
Season 10 runner up, Lauren Alaina, has had a tremendously successful career since leaving the warm embrace of Idol including a tour with country superstar Jason Aldean, but she will be returning to the Idol stage on March 8th to perform her hit single ‘Georgia Peaches.’
Lauren couldn’t be more excited to come back to ‘American Idol’ and says that it’s going to be a very different experience to perform on stage without worrying about the competition side of things. She said;
“I think it’s gonna be such a great feeling to go back to Idol and be on the other side. It will be great to perform without the stress of the competition on my mind! I am excited to show the Idol viewers what I have been doing since last appearing on the show. It’s going to be like a homecoming.”
Alaina has recently been added as one of the opening acts (in select cities) for Sugarland’s ‘In The Hands Of The Fans’ tour, which will start up in Toledo, Ohio on April 6.
