American Idol Finale: Lauren Alaina vs Scotty McCreery

American Idol Finale: Lauren Alaina vs Scotty McCreery

Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery will face off next week in the final round of "American Idol" after Haley Reinhart was eliminated Thursday night.

Next week's finale will be an all-teen, country-tinged southern affair, as the 17-year-old crooner Scotty McCreery and the pop-country diva Alaina face off to see who will be the next to take the title of "American Idol" in the wildly popular show's 10th season finale next week. This finale will be the youngest in "American Idol" history.

"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," said 20-year-old Reinhart after it was revealed that she received the fewest votes on Thursday night's show.

As a final song, Reinhart sang Elton John's "Bennie and the Jets" laced with her signature growls.

During Thursday's broadcast Ryan Seacrest also revealed that an astonishing 95 million viewer votes were cast on Wednesday – up 15 million more from the same night during 2010. more
