Two 'American Idol' Contestants Are Frontrunners

4/12/2011 9:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Two "American Idol" contestants have consistently placed at the top of the voting heap, and our  "A.I." spies say -- as of now -- it looks like one of them will get the crown.

Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina have been the top vote getters ... so we're told.  And, we're told James Durbin is consistently scoring in the top three.  Two other contestants have also fared well in the voting -- Jacob Lusk and Casey Abrams.

As for Pia Toscano ... our sources say -- based on the voting -- she never stood a chance of winning.  Pia placed in the murky middle until she was booted off.

But don't feel too bad for Pia -- We're told it's a "certainty" she will sign a deal with Interscope Records.

It's no surprise the couple -- who met filming the first movie -- looked happy together, as the two have been nothing but complimentary of each other lately in the press. David told Ryan Seacrest just yesterday that he still considers Cox his "best friend."

Re Comment #8 from Laurie - I also couldn't get through to vote for Pia - the lines for her number were busy from the minute Idle ended. I stopped trying after appx 15 minutes.

The teen girl groupies may be able to robo dial and robo text a thousand times, but guess what, this middle aged man spends money, and the advertisers of Idol won't be getting my attention to get any of my money.

Why? Because I won't be watching. Pia was the best talent.

Idol has a huge credibility problem because of the voting and until it is fixed, this is one person who is done.

Do you really think we are that dumb. If you think we believe Scotty and Lauren were the front runners before Pia you are sadly mistaken. If I was producer or who ever says that made a big mistake. We the fans know better. I know that if Simon was still on the show he would have been disappointed but never lied about Pia not being the front runner. He would have gone on without lieing to fans. P.S. Can you really say Scotty has more appeal than Pia. She was the whole package. Shame on the
people who run the show...

...actually ,who would know this but those connected to the show...which would be really against their better judgement to expose it....because... what would the point be to vote????I really don't believe anything in the article because ...jacob, haley ,paul, casey,lauren have all been in the bottom 3...Pia was never until the day she went....I believe either people thought she was safe ..or..girls move their votes towards boys...You don't see boys screaming in the audience ...do you???Its a shame, but reality....Change the voting to 10 votes per phone line ..it would be more fair.....

OMGGGGGG!!!!! SCOTTY is talented? He has ONE good note, and has to make sure that EVERY song he sings starts and ends on that note! ALL of the other contestents have more range when they are whispering. Lauren can be a cutie, but she can also put flat notes into every line of the song, and we just call it country. Pia NEVER SHOT A FLAT out of those pipes, and was as marketable as anyone that has ever been on the show! Occasionally there are those people that are so far out there with looks and talent, that I think they have to fight the jealousy factor. The others have got a LOT of range also, Haley is awsome, and doesn't hit sour. The only other completely consistent are Durbin and Casey. 2 that I picked in the beginning, as top 2 or 3.

Don't you think Scotty looks like Alfred E. Newman? He thinks he is so hot and he is only 17 year old kid.
