EXCLUSIVE

0125-Megan-Miller-tmzThe "American Idol" contestant who was seriously injured in an accident 3 DAYS before her audition is finally back on her feet ... and off the crutches ... after undergoing 3 OPERATIONS to fix her busted leg ... TMZ has learned. 

In case you missed it ... Megan Miller -- aka Miss Baton Rouge -- scored a golden ticket to Hollywood ... after blowing off a doctor-recommended surgery to treat an infection.

TMZ spoke with Miller ... who tells us she went straight to the surgeon after her audition ... and had to spend a week in the hospital to recover.

Now, Miller says her leg's all healed up ... and she's focusing all of her attention on prepping for Hollywood week. 

As for whether the injury will affect her ability to compete, Megan says she's not worried ... "Unless they make us do a marathon."

The most boring story about the most boring show in the world. No one cares about AI anymore, as the ratings prove. Stick a fork in it TMZ.

@Phishie from Philly, if you actually watched the video, you can clearly see she has several road burn type cuts (right shoulder, left knee), AND they showed pictures of her in a hospital bed. Don't be such a d-i-c-k.

I'm truly so glad she's all better and so sorry she had to endure all that pain in the first place. But it's true that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I'm sure she will do very well handling herself in this competition and get some great professional offers so she can live her dream of singing.

I love this girl's guts! She came on in real pain, but powered thru it for her audition. Instead of you lot calling her names and such, you should take a page out of this girl's Book of Life. It;s about getting on with it when the sticks are down. Making a sacrifice for her DREAM.
But, you all are so up your own a$$e$, you can't see this girl's strength thru your weaknesses and sitting in front of a computer, to get your kicks on name calling and bullying!!!

I saw her audition she was pretty good, and kind of funny how she used her crutches as microphones.

That’s great news to hear Megan Miller’s getting better and she had a wonderful performance this past episode. American Idol’s a great primetime show and I never miss an episode even if I work in the evening. I have to get my primetime events recoded the problem’s there's a bunch of shows to record, but never enough DVRs to get them recorded. I have to pick what I’m going to watch and miss the others. I don’t have to worry about that anymore after my employer DISH released the awesome DISH Hopper DVR. I can get all my shows recorded with this cool feature called PrimeTime Anytime. Once this has been enabled I can get all four major networks recorded on one TV without any conflicts. This means everyone gets what they want on primetime and we can watch it from any room. I’ve never enjoyed this much TV and all my shows without the headache which’s enhanced my TV experience.

I guess that whole bullcrap story worked. Got those "judges" to feel sorry for her. I thought this show got cancelled a few years ago.
