So, who deserves a spot in the finale?

American Idol‘s final three – Lauren Alaina, Scotty McCreery and Haley Reinhart – gave it their all on Wednesday. And by the end of the night’s three rounds, there wasn’t much between them.

The judges gave round one to Haley, who didn’t let a little stumble get in the way of her rocking performance of Led Zeppelin’s “What Is and What Should Never Be.”

Round two went to Scotty for his rendition of Thompson Square’s “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not.”

And the judges preferred Lauren in round three for her version of Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance.”

But of course, the judges don’t get to decide. Below, tell us which of the three hopefuls should be sent packing Thursday night.
