Lauren Alaina Coming Back to American Idol

No Pickler, No Underwood, No McCreery yet — Alaina holdin' it down for the country sound.

An appearance on American Idol usually means that more than 15 to 20 million people are going to see you. And that's a bunch of potential music buyers, yo.

So, good news for Idol alum Lauren Alaina—she'll be coming back to the popular Fox singing contest this season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

That should help boost sales of Lauren's first album, Wildflower, which already has sold an impressive 248,000 copies since November.

Other Idol alum set to appear this season: Adam Lambert, who has an album coming out this spring; rocker Chris Daughtry, who sang with Vince Gill on the 2009 Country Music Association Awards show; and Lauren's season 10 competitor James Durbin.
