And then there were three.

With James Durbin shockingly out of the running as of Thursday night, Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are left vying for the season 10 title on American Idol.

As the remaining contestants return to their hometowns for what's sure to be an emotional episode next week, Idol fans may still be scratching their heads and wondering who will win.

Scotty's country crooning has earned him fans on the judges' panel, with Randy Jackson declaring him "ready" for superstardom. Lauren's southern belle-charm and crystalline harmony makes her an America's sweetheart-in-the-making. And, despite occasional mixed reviews from judges this week, Haley has proved herself a determined fighter with powerhouse vocals and plenty of soul.
