Jay Leno was scheduled to interview the American Idol winner on Thursday (yesterday). Also scheduled to appear was Piers Morgan. He blabbed about it all week and it was posted on the Tonight Show website.
Well, lo and behold, on Thursday, guess who was sitting between Jay and Piers? None other than Lauren Alaina. Hmm. Last time I checked, she was the Runner-Up and Scotty McCreery was the Winner.
And, just by coincidence(wink! wink!), Piers has a humorous past with Lauren – apparently she auditioned twice for America’s Got Talent and didn’t make the cut.
Now, we all know how Jay likes to piggyback his guests. He often groups them so they have something in common. It makes for a livelier show, I guess.
Interesting that Lauren got the Leno gig instead of Scotty. Even more enticing is that Piers just happened to be there. Was this planned in advance in the hope that she would take the title of American Idol winner this year?
I checked Jay’s schedule for next week and there is no mention of Scotty. Now, that seems a little weird. I checked Lee Dewyze’s schedule last year and he was on Jay Leno and David Letterman.
I will keep checking for updates and post them in this blog topic. In the meantime, gossip away readers.
