Lauren Alaina, Scotty McCreery

Seventeen-year-old Scotty McCreery and 16-year-old Lauren Alaina both love country and are still under the legal voting age, but that's where the similarities end for American Idol's Season 10 finalists.

The big question is how will these two measure up when America finally picks a winner? Going into Tuesday's performance round, we looked at three of the most important Idol components: song choice, stage presence and vocals, to see just how Lauren and Scotty stack up... read more
