And then there were two…and a little bit country!

Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery were crowned season 10 “American Idol” finalists last night, sending Haley Reinhart home.

Ryan reveals, direct from Hollywood, “just before they all found out the last commericial break the three of them were standing out there, nervous, not talking too much and we announced the country finale for ‘American Idol’ and the two of our youngest contestants ever.”

Ryan also shares, “as soon as we finished the show, they broke down the stage — they took the stage apart, put it on flatbed trucks and a couple pickup trucks and drove it from Hollywood to downtown Los Angeles to start setting up the finale stage.”

As for who will be joining Lauren and Scotty on that finale stage? Ryan hints, “next week we’ll probably find out more about who is performing with the finalist — what superstars will be there.”

And DON’T FORGET! “American Idol” will be moving to Tuesday night next week, and the following Wednesday @ 8/7c on FOX
