AUDIO: Former ‘Idol’ Contestant Weighs in on Scotty, Lauren


Ashley Sullivan will forever live in “American Idol” lore as the first contestant to get married on the show. The Massachusetts-born singer did not make the top 40, but she made it way farther than most, and has since relocated from Lowell, Mass. to Hollywood.

In an interview which aired before Wednesday’s “Idol” finale, Sullivan predicted Lauren Alaina would beat out Scotty McCreery. Sullivan had originally picked McCreery to go the distance – even telling Scotty personally after she was eliminated that she thought he could do it. According to Sullivan, the country singer humbly dismissed her claims. But after seeing Alaina sing to her mother, the former contestant had a change of heart. Sullivan noted that because Lauren was only 15 when she tried out, her mother was with the Georgia-native every step of the way.

As for Sullivan, she is enjoying both the married life and living on the west coast as she searches for her next venture in either music or comedy.
