Despite its popularity, American Idol has let plenty of talent slip through the cracks. While Naya Rivera would ultimately find her way as both actor and singer, her audition for American Idol was a complete dud. But even after an early exit from the famous talent show, Rivera would blaze her own path in the entertainment world before her tragic death in 2020.

You would think that Naya Rivera performing “Emotion” by the Bee Gees would have turned a few heads. But American Idol producers were less than impressed. As TV Insider points out, Rivera drove from the LA area up to San Francisco to try out for Idol at the suggestion of her father. Despite already being accustomed to the stage, Rivera didn’t make it past the first round of the audition.
