And the “American Idol” finalists will be …

By Sean O’Connell Season 10 of “American Idol” boils down to its final two contestants. Next week, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina will sing for all the marbles as Haley Reinhart was sent packing Thursday night.

“Idol” revealed that a record 95 million votes were cast during this week’s top 3 round, but 20-year-old Illinois native Reinhart received the fewest votes.

That sets up an all-South season finale, with North Carolinian McCreery facing off against Georgia peach Alaina. Think they’ll sing any country songs during next week’s performances?

As for Reinhart, we think she’ll be OK. “She has conviction and makes you believe in what she’s singing,” Beyonce said about Reinhart during their rehearsals. (Beyonce mentored the final 3 this week).

“This is the biggest platform anybody can ask for and I rocked it out and had a blast,” Reinhart said after getting voted off. “It’s only the beginning.”
