Tonight’s American Idol hour result show revealed the top two American Idol finalists voted into the finals by America. Last night, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart, put on amazing performances singing three songs each. One song was the judge’s selection, another song was selected by Jimmy Lovine, the American Idol onset vocal coach and one song was the American Idol contestant’s preference. Haley Reinhart won the first round, Scotty McCreery had two out of three judges in round two, and Lauren Alaina had two out of three judge’s in the third round. The spectacular Beyonce was the guest mentor. The three judges, Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler were overly impressed by last night’s American Idol contestant’s performances.
