Lauren Alaina on American Idol: A Fatal Stumble?

by at . Comments

Did Lauren Alaina ruin her chance at advancing to the American Idol finale last night?

The beautiful, talented singer stumbled during a key change on "If I Die Young," the kind of mistake that will either garner her sympathy from fans - or lead to her ousting, considering competitors Haley Reinhart and Scotty McCreery both had strong nights.

But Alaina did shine on her two other renditions, most notably having a blast while belting out "Wild One."

"When you let yourself go is when you're your best," Randy told Lauren after that performance.

Watch it, and her cover of "I Hope You Dance" below. Will viewers give Alaina an opportunity to make up for her mistake on next week's finale?
