Lauren Alaina’s throat problem during the American Idol 2011 Finale had allegedly made her fans worry about her performance, as disclosed by international news sites, May 24, 2011, but reportedly Alaina had sang well in the Season 10 Finale in spite of her throat problem.
According to the doctor who has seen Lauren Alaina before her performance, Alaina “blew out her vocal cords,” and would need medications to “froze her throat”.
The problem was laryngitis, an inflammation of the larynx which can cause hoarse voice or loss of voice. This can be because of overuse or infection. It could also be chronic, long-lasting or acute, shorter attacks.
The laryngitis was previously thought to affect her chances of winning the American Idol 2011 Finale. Luckily though, Lauren Alaina performed well her three songs despite her laryngitis, that had impressed the three judges. But the votes of viewers, which will be revealed on a later date, will prove whether she is indeed the American Idol 2011 Finale champion.
