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.

This is NOT true. Lauren and her family go to the same church that we do. If it was true then her mom would have already called our Pastor for us to be praying. There has not been any calls!

Whether it's Lauren or Haley, they should postpone until tomorrow night at least. If Haley is moved up to the final, it wouldn't be fair to only give her a few hours practice, when Scotty has had a week. She would at least deserve a day.

Haley could out sing both of these remaining dweebs even if she had half of her vocal cords removed. FACT.

Go Haley Go!!!

Haley is suppose to be there anyway because its the finale. They always have those stupid group performances, so she is there or in the hotel. Maybe the are trying to get the sympathy vote for Lauren.

People really believe that? LOL I love Nigel feeding stupid fake drama to TMZ. No, thank you, I won't watch the finale. I just don't care. lol I even tried watching the beggining of this season, since Steven Tyler was pretty interesting during auditions, but then even the dude got dull and I couldn't keep with all this boring karaoke.

And if this type of BS happens on SYTYCD again I'll just stop watching too. Like I stopped when Billy was eliminated last season.

and the controversy begins -- if she drops out haley wouldnt / shouldnt be allowed to be reinstated because she just fb that she signed a deal with interscope records so since she signed a recording contract and i like haley not dogging her but does that mean james would be / should reinstated ?

Jesus. People REALLY believe every gossip they read/watch on tv nowadays indeed. It's all kinds of disturbing.

It sounds like a ploy by the producers who fear the ratings are going to be low for the country jamboree version of Idol. Start the rumor that Haley will be singing instead and those people who said they would not watch will tune in to see if it is true.

P.S: Haley got 25 million votes last week, Lauren got 26 Scotty got 45.
Country people got nothing better than voting I see.
