She eventually released the 2006 album, “This Crazy Life,” on Geffen.
She has appeared on the soundtrack for “Legally Blonde,” where she sang “Watch Me Shine,” and she sang “Out From Under” from the “Bratz” movie.
In fact, “Out From Under” was re-recorded by Britney Spears on her new CD, “Circus.” But while plenty of former “Idol” contenders have had record deals prior to their “Idol” experience — including season eight’s Kristy Lee Cook and Carly Smithson — Pacitti’s experience is considered, by some, to be much broader.
Her mother filed suit for $50 million, but settled with producers out of court.
Pacitti later moved to Hollywood as a teen, signing to A&M records.
She was featured in one of MTV’s “True Life” episodes, which followed her as she worked her singing career.
She was also featured in another documentary, following singers on the rise.
During the first half of 2007, Pacitti recorded the song "Out From Under" for the Bratz: Motion Picture Soundtrack.
