Tonight's American Idol appears to be all about the hometown visits, but really it's just about who is making it to next week's final.
(Home visits in short: Cheering, tearing up, singing, surprises, and in a somewhat abrupt change in tone, Lauren gets an up-close view of tornado damage in her hometown. Some of those tears were mine at that point.)
But really, all we care about is the results: Scott McCreery is in the final. Joining him is Lauren Alaina, so Haley Reinhart is out. Boo. I don't dislike country, but I was hoping for a slightly more dynamic finale. Oh well.
