Hailey Mia competed on Idol’s rival, The Voice, in 2021.

Meanwhile, Mia and Jacy, often referred to as the Alabama Sisters, competed on the NBC program in 2020 with their mom, Tara Matthews.

Many TV watchers realized this, and pointed it out on X.

“Wasn’t Hailey Mia also on #TheVoice ? #AmericanIdol,” an Idol fan asked.

“Hailey Mia literally placed 4th on #thevoice so why is she auditioning on #americanidol,” one fan shared.

“Both Hailey Mia and the sisters from Worth the Wait from #TheVoice are now on the current season of #AmericanIdol,” a second asserted.

“Excited to see them all again but also what’s up with casting recycling the same people between the two shows bc they did this last season with other kids too.”

Mia and Jacy, along with Hailey auditioned for Season 22 of Idol.

Hailey is one of the fan-favorites on this season of Idol.

Earlier this month, Idol fans defended the rising star when show judge Katy Perry seemingly criticized her too harshly.

ROCKING THE CROWD

During the episode aired on April 7, which was filmed at Disney’s Aulani resort in Hawaii, Hailey beautifully covered Tate McRae’s She’s All I Wanna Be.

Hailey rocked her performance, effortlessly working the crowd as the on-camera Idol crowd watched her sing her heart out on the Aulani beachfront stage.

When she was done performing, the crowd erupted with applause.

Hailey kept a positive attitude when it came time for the California Gurls singer to give her some blunt critiques.

In addition to Hailey, fans also noticed that Idol competitors Mia and Jacy, referred to as the Alabama Sisters, were also on The Voice

“I love the moments that you draw people in…,” Katy started her feedback off with.

After she gave the compliment, she pivoted so she could deliver the real.

“Is this the original key that Tate does it in,” Katy asked with a disappointed tone, to which Hailey replied “yes.”

The singer-songwriter suggested she liked another key more than Hailey’s rendition while also admitting to being underwhelmed by the performance as a whole.

Katy then admitted to Hailey that she thought the Idol contestant “could’ve given a little more sauce” while she was performing.

Although Hailey appeared nervous from the judges’ comments, she was overjoyed when she was told that she had advanced to this season’s top 24.

‘A BIT HARSH’

A few Idol fans peeped the shadiness in Katy’s criticism, and discussed it on X.

“Katy Perry is a bit harsher this year and not as cartoonish…,” one X user revealed.

“Katy Perry is so critical of every female singer…. #AmericanIdol,” someone else asserted.

“Why does she always have more critique of the women than she does of the men?” another commented.

“I don’t feel like these women are deserving of Katy’s wrath,” a viewer quipped.
