In 2006, Iraheta won the Telemundo reality show Quinceañera, where she sang in both English and Spanish. The prize was a reward of USD $50,000 and a recording contract, but only the reward money was ever granted.
In 2009, Allison Iraheta competed on American Idol. She achieved acclaim for her rock sound and unique style, making it into the finals. Allison remained on the show until being eliminated at the final four, finishing in 4th place. The mentor of that week, Slash, praised Iraheta, saying, "Allison didn't deserve to be voted off so soon. She has amazing potential." American Idol music director Rickey Minor was "absolutely shocked" at her departure.
After her elimination on Idol, Iraheta made guest appearances on Live with Regis and Kelly, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Larry King Live, local FOX television affiliates, and numerous radio stations nation-wide. She performed on the season eight finale of American Idol, including a group medley of Pink's "So What" with her fellow contestants and a duet of "Time After Time" with original artist Cyndi Lauper.

- Lyrics(Oh yeah)
Monday, Tuesday we were cool
Wednesday I found about you
Caught my heart by tellin' lies
You weren't what you advertised
- LyricsDid I say something stupid?
There goes one more mistake
Do I bore you with my problems?
Is that why you turn away?
Do you know how hard I tried
- LyricsDust it off, break it down
Get to what we're talking about
To what we're talking about
Don't try and hide it now
You can't keep working it out
- LyricsYou texted me to say you made a mistake
Couldn't say it face to face
You thought you wanted her and got what you deserved
Now look who's getting played
They say karma comes around
Waking up to the sound of text messages
And typing in my ear
You just can't wait to check your e-mail
Baby come back to me instead
