American Idol Finale Next Week!
After 95 million votes, the first person to make the finale is Scotty McCreery.
Ryan Seacrest announces that Lauren will join Scotty onstage next week. “We say goodbye, but a short goodbye, to Haley,” he says, as the crowd stands and applauds. She closes with her version of Bennie and the Jets, the song she sang on the night she came into her own as a finalist. She sings to the judges, and then she walks into the audience and sings to Jacob Lusk and Naima Adedapo. It’s a great performance, maybe the best exit of the season.
Watch out next week, the final week where Scotty and Lauren, the youngest finale in American Idol history will go neck and neck in an all-country finale!
