Colbie Caillat may be a Grammy winner, but that doesn’t mean she breezed through when she tried out for American Idol. When Colbie first started to pursue her singing passion, she experienced a setback when she didn’t make it through the original stages of the hit Fox singing competition.
“I’m shy,” she told the Today show’s Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb of her failed attempt at American Idol. “I’m nervous. I don’t audition well. And I honestly gave bad auditions.”
And she tried out more than once!
“The second time I auditioned with ‘Bubbly,’ which is kind of funny,” she revealed. “But I didn’t look that great. I get it.”
“Bubbly” was one of Colbie’s breakout singles.
Colbie turned to her Twitter today to thank everyone for their support on her new album All Of You.
“Thank you for your sweet tweets everyone!! They mean so much to me! I’m SOOOOooo happy you’re liking my new record! Thankyouthankyouthankyou” she wrote.
