New poll: How robbed was Lauren Turner?

This season Idol has been shedding female contestants like… something that sheds a lot; my cats, for example. I have to think that if they had kept Lauren Turner in the competition, this may not have been the case (recall that she was not even invited to sing to be in the top 13, despite being considerably more talented than, just to pick one, Stefano Langone). I could easily see her outlasting Thia Megia and Naima, for example, and probably some of the guys (though lord knows we hate to vote off guys) as well. She could be right up there in my favorites list with Casey, James, and Haley. Alas, ’twas not to be.

In case anyone has forgotten how awesome she was the one time we got to see a full performance from her, here’s her Top 24 rendition of “Seven Day Fool.”

Fortunately for us, she’s still making music; check out her Youtube channel, particularly this video she recorded of Adele’s “Crazy for You.” Someone sign this girl, stat!

    SO FLIPPIN’ ROBBED!!! Love this girl and can’t wait for some signage news!

  • Reuben

    The internet says she had lots of pre-exposure (was in the promos). I don’t remember seeing her.

      Reuben, you are so right…she was definately NOT featured with “lots of pre-exposure”……the reason you don’t remember seeing her is because the pre-exposure was early in the groups when Jordan couldn’t decide what group he wanted. They showed Lauren telling him he needed to decide. It took about 30 seconds. Then, they showed her for maybe 15 seconds when she sang with her group singing “F**** you” and they announced for them to step forward….sending them to the next round. Then she was shown for another whopping 10 seconds singing “Let it Be.” We did not see her again until they announced her making it to the top 24 and FINALLY we got to see her sing a whole song which she BLEW everybody away…even the judges agreed she nailed it. So then….what do they do? They DON’T give her a wild card chance? And what was America supposed to do? They had not heard her sing an entire song until the night they got to vote! Robbed! ROBBED ROBBED !!!!!
      And that is why unfortunately like you, no one remembers seeing her. Shame on the producers for not featuring the right person….we really could have done without the crazy chick who got married on American Idol’s time! I don’t even remember her name!
