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.

She'll drop out? In other words she wants to quit before the embarrassment of losing. She's not fooling anyone except herself. Anyone who stills watches American Idol is either under 13 or just plain stupid. The show is a big ass joke.

Lauren sux anyway.. i wasn't going to watch it, but now i might.The producers know Haley was the winner by votes, but had a plan to write her off. They knew it was the wrong decision and had to find a way to bring her back tonight. if you think i don't know what im talking about , you don't know anything about TV production.

welllllllzzzzzz....if this is "true", then in reality, AI needs to have James, Scotty, and Haley perform and eliminate two....but only use one song a piece....that way the voters don't get confused by "swapped text codes" like they did when james was booted.....you guys do the math on this......it does make sense you know....

I find the negativity of GOD offensive. It has been that way and still is in a war torn town of morons in the middle east. What I find amusing is GOD is posting on this sight like a homophobic who watches gay porn in secret. Respect the challenges and wish the AI contestants a blessing and stay off this blog.

Be real and polite - these kids work hard. If you don't like A.I. why are you on the blog stirring up your own issues? GOD has always had a personality disorder. Look what he did to the competition and his own son!
