Lauren Alaina‘s first two Top 3 “American Idol” performances were not top notch. She needed a big song for her final performance – and she pulled it out. The judges chose “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack for Lauren to do and she sang it very well.

It wasn’t the most exciting of performances. She just stood there and looked pretty, but the vocal was spot-on and we thought the judges were right in saying she won Round 3. Haley could’ve had a big finish on “You Oughta Know,” but she couldn’t quite pull it off.

So is Lauren getting your votes? Are we looking at an all-country-music finale showdown next week between Lauren and Scotty?
