We’ve just learned that American Idol finalist Lauren Alaina may have to drop out of tonight’s show!
It all went down during rehearsals earlier today when she tried to perform her set of three songs. We’ve learned that she performed the first without issue, yet she struggled through the second and was unable to sing the third.
The producers of the show have located Haley Reinhart as a stand-in for Lauren, in case she’s unable to perform. The doctor on the set of the show has ordered Lauren not to talk or sing, so there is still hope that she’s able to sing for tonight’s finale performances.
Haley is waiting in the wings, in full makeup, hoping for a chance to square off against Idol hopeful Scotty McCreery for title of your next American Idol!
If Haley does perform, she’ll be singing House Of The Rising Sun, I Who Have Nothing and Bennie And The Jets. Are you surprised that they’d try to bring her back? Are you happy that she still has a chance to win it all? Sound off in the comments!
