American Idol Edit
Aubrey, who had previously tried out in season 9 and season 11, tried out for the show in Los Angeles and progressed through the competition. However, despite going all the way through the semifinals, the public didn't choose her to be a part of the top 10.
American Idols Live tourEdit
Aubrey, along with Charlie Askew, came back to the show to take part in a sing-off to determine who would be joining the top 10 on the American Idols Live tour. Charlie chose to sing a song that he wrote called "Sky Blue Diamond" while Aubrey took on "Out Here On My Own" by Irene Cara.
Aubrey won the final tour spot on March 20, 2013 via public vote. The American Idols Live tour kicked off on July 19, 2013 in Kent, Washington and ended on August 31, 2013 in Nashville.
