Last week we wondered if the American Idol finale in three weeks would wind up being a James Durbin vs. Scotty McCreery showdown, and the exit of Jacob Lusk on Thursday hasn’t done much to dissuade us from the idea.

By: Robbie Daw // May 6, 2011

For the record, we absolutely loved Haley Reinhart’s two performances this week on American Idol, so thankfully she was spared being in the bottom (for once) on last night’s results show.

On last night’s American Idol, the Top 7 hopefuls sang songs from the 21st century, ie, everything from 2001 on.
