American Idol’s Abby LeBaron Shares Why She First Hid Her Talent


American Idol’s Abby LeBaron didn’t always share her talent. The shy 19-year-old social media marketing expert joined Ryan Seacrest via Zoom on Thursday, March 11, and reflected on her American Idol audition and what made her want to finally pursue her dream.

“My family and some of my close friends,” Abby shared of the only people who knew how talented she was. “And when I was in a community choir, I tried out for a solo and that's kind of when people were like, 'Oh! You sing, sing!'"
