OMG, this is SUCH great news for American Idol fans. While only the winner is guaranteed a record deal, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that one of the final contestants already has an album in the works!
American Idol has launched the careers of so many amazing singers, and in the final season the show will still be making recording stars out of its contestants. HollywoodLife.com sat down EXCLUSIVELY with the final three La’Porsha Renae, Trent Harmon and Dalton Rapattoni and you’ll never believe which one of them already has an album in the making! WARNING: MAJOR SPOILER ahead!
“Work starts Sunday on that so it will be out in a few months!” Dalton told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that his debut album underway! YAY! It was such a bummer to see him get eliminated from American Idol after making it all the way to the final three, and we knew the blonde pop singer still had a bright future ahead of him.
Once the AI finale airs Apr. 7, he told us “I fly out Friday and sleep for a day and drive out to Austin and work with a buddy from the band Blue October! We will put stuff to record! I love them and they are great guys and super awesome!”
He’s even recorded his first single and he told us it couldn’t have gone any better. “Yeah it was fun to record, we were with the best producers and in the best studios in LA, so it was fun and pretty freaking dope if you ask me!” he shared. Obviously he wants to strike while his AI fire is still hot, so it sounds like Dalton is doing everything right in keeping his music out there in the public eye.
As for what it was like to be on the 15th and final season of such an iconic show, he said “It is a moment in history, people might not know the show is ending and will watch the show and when they do I will be there! That is pretty freaking dope if you ask me! I am so honored to be a part of something so big and I am glad that they didn’t allow Idol to putter out and die, they ended on a high note and I am glad that I was a part of that!” We’re glad you were too Dalton, and we can’t wait to hear your new music!
HollywoodLifers, will you buy Dalton’s album when it comes out? Are you a fan?
