Contestant ADMITS She Can’t Sing But Still Wants To Be The Next American Idol [VIDEO]

Jill O'Rourke | Talent Recap

American Idol has seen its fair share of hopefuls who can’t carry a tune. But very few contestants actually admit that they can’t sing. Sarah Goldberg, however, thought her tone-deafness would be an advantage.

Sarah was lucky that Simon Cowell wasn’t present at the judges’ table when she auditioned for Season 6 of the show. Check out her cringeworthy audition below, and see how she handled the rejection.

Sarah made quite the entrance, leaping into the audition room wearing a cowboy hat and boots. The 20-year-old sang “Dreaming of You” by Selena, and it was definitely not Idol-worthy.

Guest judge Carole Bayer Sager asked Sarah, “Do you really think you can sing?” Without hesitation, Sarah responded, “No.” She added, “I am not a singer.” She denied being there for fame, and then started breaking down in tears as she explained herself.

“I really love to sing, and my friends make fun of me all the time because I’m tone deaf,” she said. “Even if I don’t sing, I can be the next American Idol, and you wanna know why? Because I’ve never sung before, so you can teach me how to sing.”

“I could be the only American Idol who has never sang before!” she declared when Randy Jackson argued with her, adding, “Look at this! I’m unique!” She continued to cry as she said all of this.

How Did Sarah React To The Judges’ Rejection?

“Sarah, I don’t think there’s anything left to say. I think you actually said it all,” Randy told her. “You entered a singing competition, and you don’t sing. So what do you think we’re gonna say?”

The judges voted no to sending Sarah through. When Randy suggested that she got some fame out of it, she shouted, “That’s not what I wanted! Are you kidding? I wanted to be the next American Idol.”

Sarah got even more angry in her post-audition interview. “It’s absolutely rude. Like, you are people. We are people too!” she screamed. She then accused the judges of going out drinking in New York City until three o’clock in the morning. “And that is rude!” she added.
