American Idol contestants Scotty Mccreery and Lauren Alaina will battle it out for this year's title after making it through to the season ten finale. American Idol received almost 95 million viewer votes after Wednesday's performances (18th May 2011), and it was 20-year-old Haley Reinhart who was the last contestant to be eliminated from this year's show.
Reinhart was expected to join the big favourite Scott Mccreery in next week's final, but a mishap on Wednesday's show appears to have cost her a place in the last two. While tackling Led Zeppelin's hit 'What Is & What Should Never Be', she tripped and fell on the 'Idol' stairs. After stumbling on the song's lyrics, Reinhart eventually managed to regain her composure and finish the track. The young singer from Chicago looked stunned when Ryan Seacrest delivered the results of the viewer vote but she performed a rousing rendition of Elton John's 'Bennie and the Jets' to the delight of the American Idol crowd. Reinhart's elimination means next week's final will feature two country artists, both of whom have received universal praise from day one of the competition. Speaking after exiting the show, Haley said, "This is the biggest platform anybody can ask for, and I rocked it out. And I had a blast.And this is only the beginning".
American Idol will return for the season ten finale on Wednesday (25th May 2011), with this year's winner announced on Thursday.

There ain't no way Haley wasen't the best. She could sing it all and looked so good on stage. That Opie Taylor looking Scotty is a one trick pony and he ain't that great. I think it was a popularity contest not a talent contest. Steven Taylor knew who was best and that was Haley by far !!

What a lot of rubbish - Haley mucked up because she fell???? She picked herself up so quickly and carried on like a real trooper. Such a boring finish with Scotty, and Lauren - who never ever hit her high notes........... Should be renamed Country & Western American Idol. It was so noticable with Jennifer Lopez, her lack of enthusiasm for Haley, even although she sang her little sox off - she was miles ahead of Lauren............... Maybe Jenny from the block saw a little diva in the making and it made her a*s twitch - couldn't take the competition of a talented vibrant 20 year old. I think Haley will fare better than any of the two finalists, good luck to you girl. Not watching the final, but hope it is Scotty that wins. Such a boring end Y A W N..............
