Last 'American Idol' finalist booted before finale

LOS ANGELES, CA The jazzy 20-year-old vocalist from Wheeling, Ill., best known for her signature singing snarl, was revealed Thursday to have received the fewest viewer votes on the Fox talent contest, leaving deep-voiced 17-year-old country crooner Scotty McCreery of Garner, N.C., and 16-year-old songbird Lauren Alaina of Rossville, Ga., to compete on next week's finale.

The pair will perform Tuesday, with the 10th season "Idol" champion unveiled Thursday.
