Carly Rae Jepsen Urges Aspiring Singers To Audition for Talent Shows!

Five years ago, Carly Rae Jepsen finished third on Canadian Idol. Today, she's one of the world's biggest pop stars, and she has a few words of advice to aspiring stars who are considering auditioning for a talent show: "go for it!"

"I would encourage anyone who's considering whether or not to take a chance at that, to jump and go for it," Carly said in a recent interview with The Metro.

She believes it's the exposure to the world she got on Canadian Idol that allowed her the fame she has now, and that it helped her get found by Justin Bieber!

"I owe Justin a lot," Carly said. "He's been such an amazing supporter."

We can't wait to see what stars shows like The Voice, American Idol, and The X Factor put out next!
