    Since it seems like I'm the only one planning on watching, I figured I'd go on and start the thread so that I may begin conversing with myself.

    If anyone else is reading, what's this I hear about Lauren being out???

    I am not sure - it is being reported on TMZ according to some. I will watch just to find out who is in the finale. If Lauren and Scotty are the finalists - meh, country vs. country and I don't like country. If Haley is brought in, a more diverse program.

    Ryan's tweets indicate nothing out of the ordinary.

    I'll watch either way, but I'll be much happier to watch Haley and Scotty.

    I assume it is ultimately her decision.

    Someone in the audience tweeted that the top 13 are in the audience, including Haley, except for Scotty and Lauren. So I assume she's still on.

    Apparently, from my sister in law's facebook page, she is there live. But no report...

    I really hope Lauren is OK tonight. It really wouldn't be fair if she wasn't up to par...giving Scotty a clear(er) path to victory.

    TMZ broke the story ... Lauren lost her voice and could not finish rehearsing for tonight's finale.

    Producers have brought Haley Reinhart to the set and she is currently in wardrobe. If Lauren can't compete, Haley will square off against Scotty McCreery for the title.

    We're told Haley just finished rehearsing, and if she does compete tonight she'll sing 3 songs -- "House of the Rising Sun," "I Who Have Nothing" and "Bennie

    They froze her voice in an attempt to save it. I guess we'll see what happens.

    Maybe if they hadn't been so anxious to do this shit a day early this wouldn't have happened. Or maybe it would have, but I love blaming the producers for things.

    Lauren's taking the stage.

    ETA: Wonder what kind of drugs they gave her.

    Probably not a big difference in the winner - Scotty.

    They did a coin toss to get to choose whether to sing first or last. Scotty won and let Lauren choose. Scotty's Dad makes the same facial expressions. :lol: It's not an affectation; it's genetic.

    Interesting that Scotty let Lauren choose to go last.

    I guess this song gets the crowd going, but I don't think it showcases Scotty's voice particularly well.

    This is Scotty's niche, he's going to have an amazing career in Nashville but to me he's just another generic honky tonk country singer. Like so what?

    She really seems fine. I can't help but think this was overdramatized.

    Scotty did well.

    What? No invaluable critique from the judges? What will people think without their guidance?????

    I'm interested to hear what George Strait chose for him to sing. His voice is suited to the type of songs GS sings. I wonder if this means GS will be on the finale? I lurve me some George.

    Maybe since it's just an hour show and they sing three songs. We can only hope.

    In Season 7, both Davids had to get steroid injections to be able to get through the final competition night. Between the commercials, up to 7 performances (including group performances) for the finale, plus 3 songs to compete, they were vocally exhausted.

    They put a hell of a lot on these contestants for the final show plus finale. It's just too much.

    If only the three geniuses coming up on DWTS would follow suit.

    Maybe it's the power of suggestion, but she does sound a little raspy. I really like this song for her even though her dancing is stupid.

    No, she sounded a little strained in parts to me. She still did pretty well considering, though.

    For me, Scotty wins Rd. 1

    Yeah, she was dying toward the end.
