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.

If that's all the producers think of the fans and their votes then they just lost me as a viewer PERMANENTLY! This is just baloney to take away the chance of a lifetime for Lauren who is 10 times more talented than the growler, Haley. We're sick of that antic and her screaming - it's not singing. The fans votes should mean something, PRODUCERS!

I don't think they should bring haley back the voters voted her off. Lauren got voted in to the finals and deserves to have a chance, so what they should do if she can't sing tonight, is show clips from her singing in the past weeks and still let her have her chance.

They could probably reschedule the competition but it seems rescheduling guests for the finale would be a problem.

I really liked Haley, but bringing her back for this is NO break of a lifetime. R U kidding me, she will never win against someone who was already on the top of the pack from day 1. Lauren should get her chance, they should reschedule. Also, Haley has to be ready to perfrom 3 new songs in about 2 hours. That's BS. Postpone and let Haley sing, she earned it.
