:: A record-breaking seven people have been signed out of the Top 9 Contestants from Season 10 of American Idol. Included in this list are winner Scotty McCreery, runner-up Lauren Alaina, as well as fan favorites James Durbin, Pia Toscano, Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams, and most recently, Stefano Langone.
