Scotty McCreery

The results are in! Host Ryan Seacrest reveals America’s vote and Season 10’s AMERICAN IDOL winner is crowned.

8:00pm – Tuesday, May 24 on CTV

On the first night of the two-night season finale, the remaining two finalists battle it out for the AMERICAN IDOL crown. After the finalists perform, viewers will vote to decide who will be the next AMERICAN IDOL.

Lauren Alaina may not get her shot to be the next “American Idol” because she has lost her voice …spies on the set tell TMZ … and it could be the break of a lifetime for Haley Reinhart.

We’re told during the rehearsal this afternoon, Lauren — who has been losing her voice — was supposed to sing three songs.  She got through the first, struggled through the second and was unable to perform the third.

Our spies say a doctor on the set has ordered Lauren not to sing or speak, but there is a “real possibility” she will not be able to perform on tonight’s show.

We’re told if Lauren is unable to perform, producers will reinstate the third place finisher — Haley Reinhart who will then compete against Scotty McCreery for the title.

Producers are trying to find Haley right now.

Irish mega-band U2 have confirmed they will be performing on the season 10 finale of American idol this week.

The band, who recently picked up the Best Touring Band at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, will play the Fox show confirmed manager Paul McGuinness.

“We’ve got Idol rehearsal tomorrow, maybe that’s supposed to be a secret,” McGuiness told Billboard. “Then, yes, the Idol finale is Wednesday.”

U2 will play on Wednesday night’s show, where either Scotty McCreery or Lauren Alaina will be crowned the season 10 champ.

Our American Idol season ten finalists have been chosen.

Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina will battle it out next week for the right to call themselves the American Idol winner.

After nearly 95 million votes – the highest tally at this point in the competition in Idol history – Haley Reinhart has come up just short of a place in the final.

“This is the biggest platform any girl — anybody — can ask for,” Haley said after learning she will be leaving the show. “And I rocked it out and I had a blast. And this is only the beginning. Thank you all so very much.”
