The New season of American Idol is about to kick off March 11th on ABC. This year we have a local connection with Garrett Jacobs a senior from Benton High School competing for the 2018 title. It's no secret that Idol has made a lot of stars but the show has also rejected a lot of people who have went on to find stardom on their own.

Kane Brown, Maren Morris and Hillary Scott(Lady Antebellum) were all rejected from the show never making it past the first round... It's safe to say they did just fine on their own! But they aren't the only ones, you can check out the video of the top 10 American Idol rejects below...
