Lauren Alaina out, Haley Reinhart back on Idol finale? Or just a last-minute publicity stunt?

A report suggests that American Idol 10 finalist Lauren Alaina has lost her voice and will be forced to drop out of the finale, replaced by last week’s eliminated contestant, Haley Reinhart.

TMZ reports, citing its usual, vague “spies,” that during rehearsal, Lauren “got through the first [song], struggled through the second and was unable to perform the third,” and “a doctor on the set has ordered Lauren not to sing or speak, but there is a ‘real possibility’ she will not be able to perform on tonight’s show,” which means “producers will reinstate” Haley.

Hilariously, the story ends with “Producers are trying to find Haley right now,” as if she’s lost.

MJ of MJ’s Big Blog notes that this comes from “Nigel [Lythgoe]’s ‘friends’ at TMZ,” and wrote, “I smell a publicity stunt!”
