Lauren Alaina May Drop Out of 'American Idol' Finale

5/24/2011 3:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lauren Alaina may not get her shot to be the next "American Idol" because she has lost her voice ...spies on the set tell TMZ ... and it could be the break of a lifetime for Haley Reinhart.

Lauren Alaina Voice

We're told during the rehearsal this afternoon, Lauren -- who has been losing her voice -- was supposed to sing three songs.  She got through the first, struggled through the second and was unable to perform the third.

Our spies say a doctor on the set has ordered Lauren not to sing or speak, but there is a "real possibility" she will not be able to perform on tonight's show.

0524_lauren_vid_launchWe're told if Lauren is unable to perform, producers will reinstate the third place finisher -- Haley Reinhart who will then compete against Scotty McCreery for the title.

Producers are trying to find Haley right now.

NOooooo.... Lauren needs to be given time to recover, then the show should continue. She won her spot fair and sqaure. I'm a fan of all three, but she deserves her shot.

They need to bring back Pia Toscano. Not because she went home early, but because she is a hot piece of ass!

The Duke has spoken.

Good! At least Haley had a unique voice and memorable songs. Can't even remember a single song that Lauren or Scotty have done... Haley, Casey and James ... their songs/performances I remember well.

DAMN THAT IS WAAAAY TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!
Haley should have won anyways.

LOL at these people wanted them to reschedule. They don't postpone the championship match at Wimbledon if Roger Federer has the sniffles, do they? If Lauren can't compete, she should gracefully forfeit her spot to Haley. It would be a show of good sportsmanship all around.

Professional singers can get medications applied to their vocal cords to combat laryngitis. I would think they would do that first. I've had to sing with laryngitis and used a salt gargle and cough syrup to get through it.
