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.
