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."

Pia sang like a robot from day one. No heart and soul. I always wondered why the judges were gaga. She is wooden and unless that changes I don't see her going far professionally either. Casey has a small audience in the recording/radio/tour arenas. Coffeehouse like singer of the 60's and 70's. James and Joshua have real talent, real personality and a real sense of who they are as do Lauren (the natural talent who has yet to scratch the surface) and Scotty. They will all do well in the end.

NEVER EVER watched Idol in my life till i was flipping through and saw lauren, she hooked me quick and it was not long thereafter i fell in love with Scotty and James auditions. I have watched just for these 3.
Scotty is awesome and will be singing country on the radio this time next year even if he does not win.
James is the next "big" rocker and i cant wait to see what lauren does with her singing career.
Theses 3 kids are major stars and will exceed their wildest dreams!!!

The first time I heard Pia sing I ouldn't understand what all the fuss was about her other han they had a plan to make a great deal of money with her. She was of tune. She had no rythem. There was another girl on that night that was by far bettr than her. I just don't get the fans. Wake up. That show is so fake. All those reality shows are fake. Oh I give up.

Neither were Chris Daughtry or Jennifer Hudson and how are they doing compared to every other contestant including the winners like, oh let's say Taylor(who) Hicks, Ruben Stoddard, and Fantasia.
Only Carrie and Kelly are bigger, so getting voted off this "popularity", little teen girl groupie contest won't hurt Pia one bit.
I've been in music my entire life and she has the "chops" to go a very long way. I'd bet a penny her music sales will eclipse the winner by a mile.
If idol wants to get it's credibility back it better change it's voting policy, quick. Saying you had 50 trillion votes is meaningless with groupie robo calling and texting.
One phone number, one vote. Otherwise Idol won't make it past this year.
Why do you think Simon left?

I am SO tired of hearing the boo-hoo's about Pia. Thankfully, I haven't watched at all this year, but, apparently she won't go away so I know who she is.
The judges pretty much kicked the winner ( Stefano? ) to the curb; shame on them!
She lost, folks. Get over it!

I was done with Pia several weeks ago. She's plastic and uninteresting, doesn't appear to have any musical skills--sure she can sing, but compare what she's done to the creativity of Casey, for example--and left me bored. I'm also done with Stefano. My guess for the final 3 is Lauren, Casey, and James, with Jacob 4th.

Scotty and Lauren?????? The American Idol? Never!
Casey is coming through with his voice and depth of emotions each week and James surprisingly is an awesome entertainer. Come on, just stand in another room and listen first, then watch. The great voices that you would want to hear over and over again will come through. Even Paul has a unique way of entertaining and I would pay good money to see him perform. Scotty is not an Elvis (and forget country) and Lauren is too forgettable.

if the Pia Toscano story is correct then AI has to be embarrassed IF the criteria of the show is really to find the best singer out there then clearly the idea of allowing the teeny boppers to control the votes based on sex appeal is a tragedy. Something needs to be done or the show will lose all the other demographics and be left with Britney fans !

Pia is a good ballad singer. Unfortunately her personality (voice) never changes from song type to song type. She has no growl, no pizazz! That's what it takes to be the top pop on AI. She will sell millions of CD's to everyone that appreciates a beautiful voice all over the world. I'm hoping she gets a few Disney requests also. Over time she'll get "it." These are all great kids and I wish them all great success!
