Who is heading to the finale on 'American Idol?'

SPOILER ALERT – Tonight's "Idol" blog will reveal who is leaving the competition, so please don't read if you don't want to know.

8:55 p.m. – Haley seems pretty cool about it. She says this is only just the beginning.

Way to stay positive girl. She goes out singing "Benny and Jets" and changes the lyrics to mention Randy and J-Lo. Cute. The ousted contestants are jamming to her. She gets a big kiss from her daddy and a huge hand from her rumored boyfriend, Casey Abrams.

8:54 p.m. -  Haley is headed home, and I think she knew. You could see it on her face. FULL POST

'You Oughta Know' tonight who leaves 'Idol'

'You Oughta Know' tonight who leaves 'Idol'

Guess who I think is going home?

Yep. Haley Reinhart. While it's been a season of shockers so far, I went back and watched the performances from Wednesday night again and that last one from Haley did it for me.

Watching her struggle to hit the low notes on "You Oughta Know," especially after I reflected on Crystal Bowersox's rendition last season with Alanis Morissette during the finale, made me think it's her turn to go. FULL POST

'Idol' Top 3 'in it to win it'

'Idol' Top 3 'in it to win it'

I don't know about you, but I don't think I need to ever hear that phrase again.

I do believe that this is going to be one of the closest "Idol" Top 3 we have ever had. For the most part, really strong performances from super-talented contestants tonight.

After the final performance, I think Haley  will be out tomorrow night, but I've been wrong before. Your thoughts?

'Idol' Top 3 come home

'Idol' Top 3 come home

10 p.m. – Two out of three judges give Round 3 to Lauren.

9:51 p.m. – So why did Haley get her song choice text while riding in the car in her hometown of Chicago (without a seat belt no less).

The judges select Alanis Morissette's "You Ought To Know." Haley gives it a valiant effort, and I felt like it should have been amazing, but I didn't love it.

Was it just me or was it all strange with Haley from how she got the news to her low notes that didn't reach the basement? FULL POST

Down to the Top 3 on 'American Idol'

Sorry, James Durbin.

You are no longer with us on "Idol," so I had to cut you out of the above photo because I just couldn't resist a look back at the crazy that was last week's show, thanks to Lady Gaga.

Tonight the final three head back to their hometowns in what will be the last performance show before the finale. Time flew quickly, didn't it? FULL POST
