Why Colbie Caillat is Terrified of American Idol

Colbie Caillat who rose to fame during the days of Myspace was, at the time, the number-one unsigned artist of her singing genre. She ended up signing with Universal Republic Records and her debut album entered the scene in July 2007.

The “Bubbly” star is performing in the celebrity duets on ABC’s American Idol.

Caillat says, “When I first got the call to be on American Idol my first reaction was “I’m so nervous, what am I going to do because this is a terrifying experience to be in front of this many people on television.”

Then she took a little time to think about it, got those nervous thoughts out of her mind and began to think of what a great opportunity this was to help other new singers.
