am i the only one that thinks that any participant on shows like these who have had some form of a record deal in the past shouldn't be allowed to audition?
No. There are comments like this in every single post about The Voice. Other shows have rules like that. The Voice is all about ~second chances.~ Jordan Pruitt is on this season and I definitely remember her from The Disney channel. She was even on a box of some sort (cereal? Capri Sun? idk) with a contest to win tickets to her concert. She was decently famous for a Disney kid. However, she's a nobody now who went nowhere, so who cares if irrelevant people want to audition? It's not like these people are well-known or cared about. Obviously their connections failed them. I always thought it was a dumb rule on AI.
I hope she doesn't get on team Xtina. I can't imagine Xtina liking her voice, but then again she turned for that weird E.T. couple.
