And then there were two on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL.
Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are in the finals and next week will battle it out for the numero uno position of the season. The big cheese. The top dog. The ace of spades. But who will it be?
That means that Haley Reinhart was eliminated this week despite perhaps being the strongest singer left in the competition and having the better performances last night. It’s too bad really cause I thought she was definitely one of the people that should be in the finals because she wasn’t singing country and was rocking it out every week. What have we learned from this? The U.S. really loves country music. Not being one of them, I don’t get it but hey, to each their own.
Obviously, we had a lot of time to kill with this being an hour long, specifically considering it is one simple reveal and that’s it. Of course, Seacrest has to milk it.
Here’s what happened before they had the results: We saw Haley, Scotty and Lauren all go back to their hometown for celebrations, we had another lame Ford Focus commercial, Il Volo performed (why?) and Nicole Scherzinger performed with a guest appearance by 50 Cent proving he still does rap despite the fact he’s been in like a ginormous amount of straight-to-DVD movies lately.
When they finally got around the results, Seacrest called all three on stage and Scotty McCreery is in the finals (and I’m totally wrong about two chicks fighting it out as I predicted). That means one of the ladies is leaving. The other person that gets to compete is Lauren Alaina. And I was also wrong about the public not wanting two people singing country in the finals. What have we learned? I don’t know jack. Should be interesting, however, to see who will win.
