We're down to three contestants on Season 10 of American Idol and, Wednesday night, Haley Reinhart, Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery will be gunning for the finale!  To get there, each will have to sing three different songs to earn your votes.  According to our Idol expert, Steve Thompson, one song will be chosen by mentor Jimmy Iovine, one will be selected by the contestants themselves and the third will be chosen by the judges!  I decided to dig around the internet and see if I could find some spoilers and . . .  guess what?  I FOUND SOME SPOILERS!!!

American Idol Shocker!!

At least once or twice each American Idol season, I want to pick up something heavy and hurl it toward my television.  That already happened once this season when Pia Toscano was voted off the show WAY too early!  Last night, it happened again!!  James Durbin, who I fully expected to make the final and even win this season of Idol, was voted off the show . . . leaving Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and Hayley Reinhart to battle for the title.  Our Idol expert, Steve Thompson, reviews last night's SHOCKER and looks ahead to next week's FINAL THREE!

American Idol is Down to Three

'American Idol' season 10 is officially down to the final three. Over 72 million votes were cast this week, making it the highest top-four vote ever in the history of the show.

Unfortunately, even record-breaking numbers weren't enough to save James Durbin. The 22-year-old rocker was sent packing Thursday night, marking yet another surprise in an already surprise-heavy season.

American Idol’s Final Four

 

American Idol is down to its version of the Final Four and, last night, James, Lauren, Hayley and Scotty took the stage twice to battle for a spot in the Final Three.  In Round One, the contestants took on songs that have inspired them.  In Round Two, they got an assist from Lady GaGa with the songs of Leiber and Stoller.  So, who was "in it to win it" as Randy Jackson says?  And whose dreams of making the American Idol finale will end?  Let's check in with our Idol expert Steve Thompson for his take on last night's show.

ANOTHER Open Letter to Lauren Alaina

Dear Lauren Alaina,

Chad Benefield here again from WBKR in Owensboro, KY.  I am writing to you today to tell you that I have just about had enough and am ready to break up with you.  I wrote to you a few weeks ago when it appeared that your nerves were holding you back on American Idol.  In my initial letter to you I said that I truly believe that you have the perfect combination of personality and voice that's needed to win the show.  But I urged you (in the friendliest of manners) to step up the singing, go for bigger notes and just lay a song out for us once and for all (like Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood would have).  After all, American Idol is a singing contest and, to win, you've gotta sing.  Now, I don't mean to sound like Ike Turner, but, Tina .  . I mean, Lauren . . . you have to sing!  Rougher!!  Harder!!  You better sing, Tina!

Idol’s Final Four

If you tuned into American Idol last night, you saw Lauren Alaina narrowly escape elimination and a mental breakdown!  Country's aspiring sweetheart let her nerves keep her from making all the right moves and hitting all the right notes in "Unchained Melody" on Wednesday night and she nearly paid the price for it on Thursday night.  But Lauren lives to see another day, but Jacob will not.  Idol's resident gospel/r&b crooner is gone.  So, what's in store for the final four?  Let's check in with our Idol expert, Steve Thompson!

American Idol Review: The Top Five!

With five contestants left on American Idol, the stakes are raised!  And, last night, each contestant had to take on two songs . . . one from NOW and another from THEN!  For me, the performance of the night belong to James Durbin.  I thought his performance of "Without You" was powerful and moving.  Any rocker who cries while he sings earns my vote.  Okay, correction.  He earns my 52 votes.  (I think I sprained my text finger last night.  LOL!)  But what does our Idol expert, Steve Thompson, think about the show and who its star was?

Casey Strikes Out – Abrams Eliminated From Idol

And then there were five.

Ryan Seacrest told us at the top of the show that we would be disappointed with the outcome of tonight's results - and he wasn't wrong: In somewhat of a shocker, Casey Abrams was eliminated from 'American Idol.'

Of course, the elimination wasn't totally surprising, as Casey was actually eliminated on a previous episode. (He was then saved by the judges.) Even so, it didn't feel like it was his time to go, especially after his crowd-pleasing performance on Wednesday. Then again, it's a talented group of six, so tonight's results were guaranteed to have at least some shock value.
