American Idol Elimination: Who are the Finalists?

by at . Comments

American Idol is down to its final two.

After 95 million people cast votes this week, Nashville residents Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery will do battle on Tuesday night to decide the season 10 title.

Yes, this means Haley Reinhart was voted out last night.

Farewell, Haley Reinhart

"My oh my," Haley said about learning the news. "This is the biggest platform any girl, anybody, could ask for. I rocked it out, and I had a blast."

Reinhart then sang a tremendous farewell song, belting out "Bennie and the Jets" to the judges and then to Jacob Lusk and Naima Adedapo in the audience. We'll miss her.

Did viewers make the right choice?
