Lauren Alaina Silent in Makeup -- Haley Is Ready

5/24/2011 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lauren Alaina is sitting in the makeup chair silently because an "American Idol" doctor has frozen her throat in a last ditch effort to save her voice ... spies on the "Idol" set tell TMZ.

Lauren Alaina Laryngitis

TMZ broke the story ... Lauren lost her voice and could not finish rehearsing for tonight's finale. 

Producers have brought Haley Reinhart to the set and she is currently in wardrobe.  If Lauren can't compete, Haley will square off against Scotty McCreery for the title.

We're told Haley just finished rehearsing, and if she does compete tonight she'll sing 3 songs -- "House of the Rising Sun," "I Who Have Nothing" and "Bennie and the Jets."

Not a fan of Haley's. Pretty sure if she sings it will be a Scotty landslide. She opened her yap one too many times and let the fake smile fade before the camera left her too often to fool the public that she's nice. The growler has to go!

First off I think you haters are reading WAYYYY too much into Haley's "attitude". She was upset when the judges constantly ragged on her. So what!!
That just shows she has heart. Isn't that a GOOD thing??

Attitude aside, OBVIOUSLY every single person in the USA has to admit.. Haley's vocal abilities are 50x that of Scotty.

She deserves to win a SINGING COMPETITION.

that sucks for Lauren. She doesn't handle the stress well, I'm sure she's beside herself atm. I love Haley and would so love to see her tonight. No matter who shows, I suspect Scotty will take it tonight. he's got the lil girls and the grannies who will put him through.

These kids are 22, 17 and 16. You can't expect them to have the poise to not show disappointment at losing a dream. Like Haley or not, leave the kid alone... she too CAN sing. That said... Scotty's got this in the bag.

this is bull, and is not fair... im not a fan, nor am i a hater of haleys, but this is not how it works.. america did not vote her to the finale, she doesnt get to compete by default! what are they thinking? if anything, the show needs to be postponed... itd be smart as far as ratings go for the show... but yeah, having a person who was voted through to the finale, lose her chance and have a person who clearly no one wanted to have win, take her place, its not fair... period.

If it was scotty vs lauren. Scotty would win.
If it's haley vs scotty there is a chance Haley could surpass and win.

No, not Bennie and the Jets! Haley should sing What Is and What Should Never Be instead... perfect 3 song set in that case.

TMZ you absolutely SUCK for posting this story which went viral so quickly when you didn't have crap as far as facts go.

Seriously go back to reporting on Linsey's panties.
