American Idol” runner up Lauren Alaina appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” Thursday night, where she revealed a very interesting tidbit of information.

No, I’m not referring to her “we’re just friends” line about “Idol” winner Scotty McCreery. (“Everyone wants us to like each other but we just can’t seem to do it!”)

She almost had a near-win on the No. 1 talent show on TV, but it seems Alaina couldn’t even get arrested on
America’s Got Talent.”

“Wanna hear something funny?” Alaina said, turning to fellow “Tonight Show” guest Piers Morgan, who had declared Lauren a better singer than Scotty. “I tried out for your show and I didn’t make it. Twice.”

“What!? Are you serious?!” a shocked Morgan said.

Morgan, who’s a judge on “Got Talent,” then covered his hands over his mouth and declared it “a scandal.”
