Here we go! It’s the final round of performances for American Idol 2011 so the pressure is on tonight. Either Scotty McCreery or Lauren Alaina will emerge victorious and it will all be up to you.
American Idol 2011 Top 2 Performances – Singer’s Favorite:
- Scotty McCreery – Gone – 1-866-436-5701 & 5703 & 5705 & 5707

Not a word from any of the judges so far tonight. I guess they’re racing to finish and don’t have time.
American Idol 2011 Top 2 Performances – Country Star’s Pick:

- Lauren Alaina – Maybe It Was Memphis – 1-866-436-5702 & 5704 & 5706 & 5708
The judges finally speak though Randy’s suit really speaks for itself. Randy gives Round 1 to Scotty and Round 2 to Lauren. Jennifer agrees with Randy. Steven gives both rounds to Lauren, but as he says, “only because she’s prettier.” Randy reminds us that they’re both, wait for it, “in it to win it!”
We also get the introduction of this season’s coronation song performed by Taio Cruz and lots and lots of Auto-Tune help.

Randy gives Round 3 to Lauren with a slight edge. JLo gives Round 3 to Lauren and then backtracks to say it’s a close race. Steven says Lauren got Round 3 “hands down.”
