After last night’s part one of the season 10 “American Idol” finale, and much buzz beforehand regarding Lauren Alaina potentionally dropping out of the contest, Ryan got the scoop of what went down pre-show.

As Ryan explains, “at one point we weren’t quite sure what was going to happen, her voice was hurting her, so during the dress rehearal she didnt actually sing her third song.” Adding, “I actually sang it …with Randy and Steven, and she stood there and the camera took shots of her so she could rest her voice.”
