Lauren Alaina - Lauren Alaina Set To Scoop American Idol Crown?

Lauren Alaina, the 16-year-old country sensation, took a huge step towards becoming American Idol champion during Tuesday's final performances, reports the New York Daily News. Lauren Alaina edged out fellow country singer Scotty Mccreery during a tense final which saw the Georgia-born singer receive the only standing ovation of the night.
Alaina performed the Kristy Lee Cook track 'Like My Mother Does' as her third selection of the evening, receiving unanimous praise from the judges. Jennifer Lopez commented, "With that song you may have just won", while Steven Tyler declared, "You are it in my eyes". Randy Jackson gave her a standing ovation, as did the live studio audience. Alaina was considered to be the underdog having revealed she had damaged a vocal chord in rehearsals just hours before she was due on stage. However, American Idol has seen a number of unlikely victors in recent years, most notably Lee Dewyze's win over Crystal Bowersox and Kris Allen's shock victory over Adam Lambert in 2009. Elsewhere on Tuesday's show, Scotty performed the country hit 'Check Yes or No', chosen for him by Hall of Famer George Strait, while Lauren sang Pam Tillis' 'Maybe It was Memphis', as chosen by former 'Idol' winner Carrie Underwood.
Lauren Alaina and Scotty Mccreery will learn their fate during tonight's (25th May 2011) American Idol final results show.

Well, that was totally unfair of the judges to pick THEIR winner last night. How do you think that made Scotty feel? Those 3 are there to judge - not pick the winner! That is up to the US, and I really hope that their unfairness last night sways the American audience to cast their votes in Scotty's favor for this terrible injustice by that panel. That was rude, crude, and really one of the worst things I have seen on Idol yet, and there have been some real no-nos. This, however, is the worst ever!!!!!!!
