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."

She may have not been frontrunner in votes, but believe with the judges she was at or near the top. And she was at the top or near in voice talent. I hope the program adopts a new voting and rating procedure. The judges should be doing the bulk of the rating.

Ok, Pia was obviously the most talented singer that American Idol has had on in at least 2 seasons. I cant stand watching or listening to Scotty. He is simply doing an impression of his favorite country singer. He should be in an impressions contest, not a singing contest! James is good, and has a good story. I think we all liked Casey at first, but he's a nut and his growling style wont last. He only does that all the time because he cant hold a note. As long as Scotty or Paul doesn't win, i dont care now that Pia's gone.

Its funny how they say the Idol 'spies' say those 2 have had the most votes, everybody knows that because all the little girls are voting for Scotty and all the guys for Lauren based on their looks and personality. Hello people its a singing contest and Pia was the best and strongest singer, those 2 should have been gona before her for sure! I watched idol every week since season 1 and voted, but after this I will never watch it again!!

No one mentions him, but I like Paul McDonald. I'm sure he won't win, but I'm just happy to see him each week. He has a sincerity and stage "presence" which I don't see in the other contestants. I feel that he may be the next Rod Stewart?
Frankly, I felt bad for the other contestants when the judges made such a fuss when Pia was voted off the Show. This was America's choice, not theirs. I'm sure that it made especially Stefano feel uncomfortaable when he was chosen. They also seemed to express an underlying feeling that they wished that they had kept their "Save" for Pia. This probably didn't make Casey feel too great either. They should have kept these
feelings to themselves!

Yea, Yea, Yea, Producers will say anything to save their jobs. Look Pia is not the only reason I tuned in, but she was a major contestant in this years Idol. I cant bring myself to watch again, regardless of the BS being fed to me. The show has a major flaw, it fails to protect it's premier contestants, the contestants people tune in to see. I'm not tuning in for Paul, Hailey, Stefano, or some of the others. Now Pia, I would tune in to hear. The producers messed up and it will become evident when the votes are tallied this week. Create a fail proof that protects the two best contestants each week, we will call them eh say, the judges choices. You cant be a judge if you just sit on the side lines and only give an opinion, Randy, Steven, Jennifer should still have valued input. Yes I am available for a job as a producer, call me.

I think Pia has a great future in music. She will develop her act as she goes along. It is a shame that she didn't win but she is over it. To all you sceptics wait and see !!!!
