American Idol has come down to two highly talented singers, Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery! So who’s got what it takes to be your next Idol champion?

We recapped the performance show last night here.

We conducted a poll earlier to assess our readership to find out who the public thinks will win the show tonight. Results from that have concluded that Scotty is going to win it all with 65 percent of the vote. The judges, however, awarded the show to Lauren, so it’s really anyone’s game.

Host Ryan Seacrest said that the contestants set a record with 122 million votes for last night’s show. The top 13 performed Lady Gaga’s Born This Way. Third place winner James Durbin performed Living After Midnight and Breaking The Law with Judas Priest.

Jacob Lusk performed I Smile with Kirk Franklin. Casey Abrams followed, singing Queen’s Fat Bottomed Girls and was joined by Jack Black. The ladies of the top 13 took the stage to perform Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It), Irreplaceable and If I Were A Boy by Beyonce.

Afterward, the top 13 performed Kiss by Prince and She’s A Lady and What’s New Pussycat by Tom Jones. They were joined by Scotty, singing The Green Green Grass Of Home. They were joined by Tom Jones, who sang It’s Not Unusual.

Lady Gaga performed her new song, The Edge Of Glory! I love ths song, but Gaga is looking like she’s wearing a chandelier on her head. This song is so timeless, I love it. In the end, they jumped off the edge!
