Haley Reinhart sent home on ‘Idol’ [VIDEO]

American Idol: Haley Reinhart Sliminated Video

Haley Reinhart‘s amazing run on “American Idol” has ended. Now country music singers Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery will square off in the season 10 finale next week – the youngest matchup in the history of the Fox talent competition.

Reinhart was revealed Thursday night (May 19) to have received the fewest viewer votes even though the judges were impressed with her rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon” and Led Zeppelin’s “What Is and What Should Never Be.” The 20-year-old singer from Chicago appeared stunned by her elimination, but rebounded to exit with a stirring performance of “Bennie and the Jets.”


Next week’s two-night season finale live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles kicks off with Tuesday’s one-hour performance episode.

Who will you be cheering on next week? Scotty or Lauren?
