"Extra" caught up with "American Idol" contestant Haley Reinhart on the red carpet and asked her about preparing to go onstage if finalist Lauren Alaina's vocal chord problems prevented her from singing.
"I had somebody come up to me tell me what her condition was," explained Reinhart. "They didn't know if she could sing or not. They asked me to do it and said to pick out some tunes I already did. It was an honor that they asked me; they never did this for somebody else on the show."
"American Idol" runner-up Lauren Alaina stopped by The Grove to chat with "Extra's" Mario Lopez -- and to set the record straight on rumors she's dating "Idol" winner Scotty McCreery.
"We're not dating, everyone!" laughed Lauren, adding, "We're just friends!"
As for losing to McCreery, Alaina said she saw it coming. "I thought Scotty was going to win. I told him he was going to win." Why? "Um, because all little girls in America are in love with him!"
Tony Romo will tie the knot with fiancée Candice Crawford this Saturday, beating his engaged ex, Jessica Simpson, to the altar.

"Extra" has learned from a source close to the "American Idol" production that finalist Lauren Alaina has lost her voice and is currently receiving medical treatment.

"American Idol" chose its final two contestants; country singers Scott McCreery and Lauren Alaina -- in a recording-breaking evening with over 95 million votes! "Extra" caught up with them backstage to get their reactions.

Alaina, 16, said she'd like to do cartwheels and thinks the last show will be a "big country finale!"
The two singers, the youngest finalists "Idol" has ever seen, credit their faith for helping them. "We pray a lot together," said Alaina. "Every time I pass by him, I yell, 'Scotty, pray for me!'" McCreery added, "It's our thing."
