Maren Morris' Mic Drops Big Time

Maren Morris may have delivered the world's biggest proverbial mic drop with her performance of "I Could Use A Love Song" on NBC's The Voice recently.

Why? Well, Maren auditioned and was rejected early in her musical journey by both The Voice and American Idol.

"I think about all of the freaking talent shows I've tried out for in my life and I'm so glad I didn't make any of them," she told Rolling Stone in 2016.

"It's full circle," she said after contestants on both shows subsequently covered her Top 5 hit "My Church." "I was rejected from The Voice. I was rejected from American Idol – and I'm happier for it now." She sassier, too, judging by her triumphant return to The Voice. Watch below.
