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.

Rachel says her 25-year-old BF Matt Hahn is,  "The best thing that's happened to me in as long as I can remember."

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 is laughing all the way to the bank.By being eliminated early on,she can focus on the multi recording contracts that are waiting on her.They are salivating to sign her on.Look out Celine,Whitney,Jennifer,Kelly.By the way American Idol lost me as a die hard fan.

AI sources said all that to save their asses. They are afraid their ratings are going down the toliet tomorrow night and trying their best to make it seem like she didnt have a shot at the title. That's crap, I don't believe a word of it!!

Scottys only good if you like country music, I happen to despise it! The apparent would be winner is gone. Would love to know why Paul is there, or, how he even got there in the first place! Sure, seems like a nice enough guy, but, he cant sing!! Too bad everyone is so focused on looks, personality, etc. People fail to realize it's a singing competiton!!! As far as the singing, it's all about Jacob-hands down. Nobody even comes close to his talent. I don't particularly like him, am only going by his singing! Also, Abrhams? Yikes, he hasnt a damn thing going for him- singing, looks, etc..nothing good!

Pia was good but she just stood in one place and sang, I think it was what she wore that night that got ther voted off, Pia was the only girl that wore what that Gwenn Stephani picked, and that was an awful outfit. Also that fat gay guy has to go not because he's gay but because he's just plain scary!!!!

So the whole program is rigged. I guess that is why I never watch it and never will. Just like Dance with the fat ass stares that can't stay up.

Besides, In the history of AI, they have never put out there who the top 2 contestants are! They always say in the show its random . What the hell kind of crap are they trying to pull here. Sounds like they are worried to me. BOYCOTT AI!!!

This was all designed to et those three off the show. If people think they have a lot of votes no one would vote for them, hence- get kicked off the show. Theose three are my picks as favorites

Lauren Alaina is the only one in the competition who is versatile. That girl can sing anything like a little star! We still can't believe she is only 15 or 16 years old! Our family has been watching for years and we have never been as impressed with anyone as we are with her. We hope Lauren Alaina wins this season, she's darling.

Pfft. Casey has probrably been in the top 3 every week (other than the fixed elimination/save) and Haleys's following close behind. Haley has an amazing voice, and so does Casey. Everyone else is good too, except maybe Stefano. I think Pia should've beaten Stefano, but whatever.
