'American Idol' Finalists Tackle the Tough Questions


And then there were nine… We rounded up the remaining "American Idol" finalists (Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Lauren Alaina, Casey Abrams, Scotty McCreery, Paul McDonald, Haley Reinhart, James Durbin and Pia Toscano) after Wednesday night's show and asked them each one personal question -- and boy did they answer candidly.

Who can sleep just about anywhere to catch some Z's before a performance? What goes on in Lauren's head right before Ryan Seacrest announces whether she's safe or in the bottom? How is Casey's confidence level these days? Who is the first person Paul calls after he performs? Which artist would Pia choose to duet with? And who finds it difficult to sing to the "hard glass lens" of the camera? Watch the video for everyone's answers!
