Grammy Contest Winner Booted from "Idol"

2/14/2007 2:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comRobyn Troup was good enough to sing with Justin Timberlake on the Grammys on Sunday, but she was canned from the Hollywood hopefuls on last night's "American Idol."

With her "Idol" rejection taped long before she won the "My Grammy Moment" contest, Troup had a Jennifer Hudson moment by landing a major break after getting the "Idol" ax.

Now, it's either a record deal for the 18-year-old Houston native -- or a trip to "The Surreal Life." Good luck!
