Country singers Lauren Alaina and Scott McCreery try to step up their game to take home the American Idol crown.  Part one of the season finale airs tonight (Fox, 8 pm et/pt), as the artists perform at L.A. LIVE’s Nokia Theatre.

Although she wants the top prize, Alaina harbors no ill will towards her competitor.  “It’s a competition but I forget a lot of the time because we go to school together and we just hang out and we’re just like really good friends,” said Alaina.  “I’m so glad I’m in the finale with Scotty because I love him to death and it’s like I’ll be happy either way.  Of course, I want to win, I came here to win, but if Scotty won I would be happy for him.”
