Carly Smithson with Cirque du Soleil

Is it me or was that Carly Smithson in the audience on the top 12 night and Ryan Seacrest did not even acknowledge her. It seems to me that Ryan Seacrest totally snubbed Carly Smithson that night.

Carly Smithson was a contestant on American Idol season 7, she finished in 6th position.

In an interview last year Carly said that she not only keeps in touch with other season 7 contestants but she also regularly meets with Brooke White for lunch, they are best friends now. She even went to one of David Cook’s concerts in Palm Springs and went on stage with him to sing Barracuda.

A year after appearing on the show Carly joined Evanescence co-founder Ben Moody with John LeCompt and rock Gray to form the band “We Are the Fallen”. They released their first album “Tear the World Down” in May 2010. The album includes the song “Bury Me Alive” that Carly co-wrote.

Last December Carly Smithson joined the Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas, as a singer. She is still a member of her band, We Are The Fallen but only works with the group when the Cirque does not have performances. They are already working on their next album.
