Welp, this is officially one of the weirdest things we’ve ever seen.
Back in 2007, long before he was a rising country heartthrob, Chris Lane audition for Season 7 of American Idol along with his twin brother, Corey. The pair were both a “rap duo” and the points of a love triangle with a perky blonde named Ashley. Ashley also auditioned by singing Kellie Pickler with a tiny puppy. Really, we couldn’t make this up.
After their cringe-worthy (sorry, Chris!) performance, Simon calls them “amateurish.” The judges give them a resounding “no.” “They must have so much fun with the chicks, those two,” says Simon.
Yeah, you kinda have to see this to believe it.
Chris Lane, you have come a loooong way.
