Jimmie Allen shared a clip on of himself getting rejected by "American Idol" in 2011. Jennifer Lopez was a judge back then and she gave him the news. He used the rejection as motivation.
He captioned the post with some inspiring words, quote, "Someone telling us 'No' doesn't stop our dream . . . we stop our dream. Never stop fighting, never stop dreaming. Believe in yourself, you can rise from the ashes."
