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.

Couldn't agree more, doglover! I don't think anyone should watch American Idol anymore if Haley gets to come back. Or pay to advertise during it. What a ripoff and a crock of horse crap.There is a new show called The Voice. Wonder if that is more real?

They push those kids to hard on that show. At least the older performers with some background would have know how to take care of their voices.

They know that the rating will be dropped so they incorporate a little drama. Coz both country contenders will be ho-hum night for the viewers.

Please bring back Haley! I'm tired of the country cousins...BORING!

The judges set her up to lose anyway by giving her one of Alanis Morrisettes raunchiest songs to sing!
