Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart are the three American Idol finalists. Congrats!
Heavy metal singer James Durbin, 22, was sent home last night. After learning of his elimination, a tearful Durbin told the audience:
- "I worked so damn hard and I was hoping to get there. But I did so much stuff that's never been done on the show. I did what I came here to do, and that was to give metal a chance."
