A recap of the “American Idol” results show in which James Durbin was eliminated and Lauren Alaina, Haley Reinhart and Scotty McCreery made the top 3.
Ryan Seacrest said — America picked the top three contestants on "American Idol" this season. Sadly, James Durbin wasnt among them. The good news? Both Haley Reinhart and Lauren Alaina did make it through. They, along with Season 10&39;s brow-waggling country boy, Scotty McCreery, will be sent back to their respective hometowns to take a razzle-dazzle victory lap before returning to compete for the top spot.James&39; ouster was unexpected (he said after learning his unfortunate fate that he&39;d had a strange feeling that his number might be up), but looking back, there was a strange moment of foreshadowing early in the show.After James and Scotty sang a seriously underwhelming duet of "Start a Band" (the bored faces of the children gathered on the lip of the stage said it all), they joined Ryan on the couch as he rattled off the cities where auditions for next season will be held this summer.&0160;James appeared to be wiping away a tear. "You&39;re in tears already. What&39;s happening to you?" Ryan asked. Apparently, James&39; wife had bonked him in the eye with her nose when he went in for a kiss. (Do you think James talking about his wife and child all the time hurt or helped him with voters? Discuss!)Anyhow, the real waterworks didn&39;t start for James until later.
