'American Idol' Axes Another Finalist

"American Idol" viewers apparently stopped believin' in James Durbin.

The wailing 22-year-old rocker from Santa Cruz, Calif., was revealed to have received the fewest viewer votes on the Fox talent contest Thursday, leaving just three finalists remaining in the competition. Durbin consistently wowed the judges and did so again Wednesday with Journey's "Don't Stop Believin"' and The Clovers' "Love Potion No. 9."

Durbin's dismissal leaves deep-voiced 17-year-old country crooner Scotty McCreery of Garner, N.C., growling 20-year-old singer Haley Reinhart of Wheeling, Ill., and soaring 16-year-old songstress Lauren Alania of Rossville, Ga., as the show's top three finalists.

Another singer will be eliminated next Thursday, with the 10th season "Idol" champ scheduled to be crowned May 26.
