Tornadoes Jeopardize Lauren Alaina's 'Idol' Votes

4/28/2011 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lauren Alaina fans are in an uproar -- worried she might get cut from "American Idol" tonight ... because of the deadly tornadoes that ripped through the South last night.

Lauren's hometown of Rossville, Georgia -- population 3,500 -- was devastated by the twisters ... leaving most homes without power, land lines, or mobile phone service.

Now Lauren's friends and family tell TMZ they're concerned because Lauren's main supporters couldn't see the show and weren't able to vote.

One friend said, "It would be a travesty if she was taken off the show because of an Act of God" -- and another added, "I do believe the weather should be taken into consideration when it comes to the voting."

One friend who was outside the damage zone tells us she voted more than usual for Lauren ... and made online appeals for others to do the same.

Will it be enough to get Lauren into the top 5?

She should just let FATE happen. And then sue them for damages exceeding her entire (potential) recording career. THAT'S how we roll in America.

I'm not religious, but...

If an act of God takes her off the show, wouldn't that mean that God wants her off the show?

If it was an "act of God" then perhaps he didn't want her to win Idol so he created the tornadoes.

3,500 people lost power. Out of 30-50 million votes cast each week. Cry more.

Oh boo-hoo, people died, that's a little more important than your sorry little ass getting voted off a stupid show, how pathetic, you deserve to get voted off if you and your friends and family can only think about that!!

I truly can't believe that this is an issue. Her hometown was devastated and people are worried about her advancement on Idol?

Please, please take this lame show off the air.

I don't think that Lauren is the one vocalizing selfish statements as her fans are. Lauren hasn't even been interviewed as to how she feels about the tornadoes, loss of lives and how that will affect her votes. It's the retardo fans that are obsessed that think that nothing else matters, not even the loss of life (unless it's their own). Lauren rocks...she is BY FAR the prettiest girl between her and the biatch Haley and has far more talent then she does. She may be in the bottom 3 this week and it's obvious that this is just the process of elimination and more than likely she won't make it to the top 3 but in the meantime I'm gonna enjoy her cutsie southern way about her. Go Lauren!!!
