LOS ANGELES — Lauren Alaina will compete in the “American Idol” finale, don’t worry.

She will face off against Scotty McCreery as the two country singers battle it out for the crown.

Host Ryan Seacrest brought a doctor into the Nokia Theatre Tuesday who explained that Alaina, a 16-year-old from Georgia, blew out a vocal cord rehearsing for the finale, but after “a lot of medicine,” she will be able to go on.

The young final features Alaina against the 17-year-old McCreery.
