4. Alex and Sierra

Simon Cowell gave it to him crazy here, first rejected them in American Idol and then made them win in The X Factor ... OKAY. Without comments, the good thing is that this duet that makes us fall in love with his love and talent did win the second show, that's all that interests us.

5. Mary Lambert

In 2012 he collaborated with the musicians Macklemore and Ryan Lewis in the song for the equal marriage "Same Love", which became the fourth single from the album The Heist. Writing the chorus of the song took two hours and was inspired by her own experience as a lesbian who received a tumultuous and Christian upbringing. The phrase "Not crying on Sundays" ("Without crying on Sundays"), for example, reflects what he felt that day of the week at the conclusion of the Masses in the Evangelical Church. As you can see, she did not let her rejection of American Idol stop her.

7. Naya Rivera

This girl before becoming famous in the television program Glee was rejected by American Idol because they felt that "I did not have the necessary spark" to be able to go further ... I think this is quite debatable, and able was even better for Naya Well, if I had gone a little further on American Idol, I would not have reached all that it is today, so they actually did him a favor.

8. Colbie Calliat

Apparently for the judges that sweet and tender voice of Colbie was not enough to become an American singing idol ... What beauty! The worst thing is that this woman even auditioned with her song Bubbly, which would soon become a super hit ... Bad Simon, bad bad.

9. Hillary Scott

Probably the name does not sound like the first because she is the lead singer of the country band Lady Antebellum ... Impressive, huh? Who would think that someone could reject the beautiful voice that sings Need You Now? You know, our favorite song to listen to with some shots of tequila while we wait for it to be one o'clock in the morning and we miss that guy or woman who has left us feeling disgusted for life. Hillary was rejected twice in the program, not even a little away ... Wow.

10. Amber Riley

I know what they must be thinking: WTF ?! How could someone reject Amber? Obviously a very strange phenomenon had to have happened with this singer in particular, but again and as with Naya, they did her a favor, as Glee welcomed her and gave her the role of Mercedes, one of the stellar voices of the series, getting the best out of it to give it to the world.

The point is that for these artists I think it's quite irrelevant what the jury decided or not, and the moral of the story is exactly that: Certain things are quite subjective, and singing is not the exception, which for some be garbage, for others it can be pure gold, just do not give up on that.
