It's 'American Idol' finale night!

We are finally here!

After weeks and weeks, we've arrived at the day of the "American Idol" finale, and it's going to be a star-studded event.

We will finally find out which teen will take the title, either Lauren Alaina or Scotty McCreery. A host of stars are expected to show up tonight, including Carrie Underwood, Jack Black, Tony Bennett, Tim McGraw and Tom Jones.

Get ready for some performances, some star sightings and some surprises.

Who do you think will be crowned the winner of season 10 of "American Idol"? Join me here tonight while I live blog the two-hour finale.

    How exciting, a talent show finale between a gay redneck and fat chick.

    Yea Scotty ... great pairing with Tim McGraw ... Damn he is so beautiful ... what a beautiful body.

    Scotty take note of his beautiful body ... you are 17 years old. Time for you to go to the gym and get rid of your baby fat and turn into a real man like Tim McGraw. Tiny waist, great butt and legs, GREAT chest and arms. Scotty, get a gym card and concentrate on your body!

    I think the show should have ended a few years ago,, and or figured out a way to not make it a popularity vote.. You can not out number the number of teen girl votes,, the better singer never wins,, i like scotty from the start, but his arrogance and the song choices he picked i think were not very fitting,, sounded like josh turner karaoke contest.. he has nice voice but come on,, same thing every time... May aslo need judges that aren't so nice,, miss the simon vote.. i love tyler, but come on,, he seems to have taken paulas place, and has a hard time being mean...

  12. jus sayin

    who cares?! they're one in the same and boring as watching paint dry. Lauren is an EXCELLENT singer and has a GREAT voice but does absolutely NOTHING with it. she was a favorite of mine in the beginning....but after NEVER progressing and improving (and being outsung both in volume and depth by the back up singers) i lost interest in her. I like Scotty and thinks he sings well, too...but again, no AMERICAN IDOL...just a teen idol. Lauren should be blowin us away and she falls short (if not missing her high notes as she's done twice) and Scotty is one note, one trick...nothing new yet. Haley, Pia and James (or Casey) should be the top 3...diversity, range, stage presence and uniqueness...out of the two left, I guess I partially root for least he moves around, jumps around and has fun with it...

    The judges verbally favored Lauren and should not have at this point in the show. I hope Scotty wins and Lauren does well.
    They will both be stars. Scotty should have sung a song like Are we Dreaming the Same Dream he would have all the girls

    SERIOUSLY?? Who cares which one wins? That was the most boring finale EVER on American Idol. The only thing exciting was the rumored return of Haley. The finale should have been James & Haley, or Casey & Haley. Only one artist who will successfully record–possibly two–Haley; and Casey. Lauren and Scottie are lovely teens, but their performance skills are, well.....they don't have any. As controversial as Haley is, no one that competed this year had her sound uniqueness. Sigh.....very disappointing.

      I wonder if AI started the rumor about Haley coming back just to get all the viewers to come back who quit watching after last week ... i wouldnt put it past them since i bet alot of people are totally disgusted about the Hillbilly Hoe Down

    Ive been waiting all season for tonite! Got an excellent star line up plus Lauren and Scott. Should really be a great show. Both have shown alot of integrity thru out the whole season and all their hard work is finally paying off. I thought Scott was a sure thing for the win but after last night Im not so sure anymore. Lauren just might take it afterall. Doesnt matter who wins b/c I think both of them will be sauccessful regardless. Good luck to both of them. What a great season this was.
