‘Get well’ wishes are in order, as Lauren Alaina has sustained an injury to her ankle at the July 9 stop on the American Idols LIVE! tour. The tour only just kicked off last week, but Alaina is already walking wounded. With all the singing and dancing going on for this tour, it was only a matter of time before one of the Idols got hurt, even if in a somewhat minor fashion. Such is life on the road!

The perky blonde Season 10 runner-up tweeted a pair of photos of her extremely swollen and somewhat bruised ankle. It looks like it hurts like heck, but if we know anything about Lauren Alaina after a season of ‘Idol’ it’s that she is resilient. She suffered from throat issues right before the finale, which lead to rumors that she was unable to sing and that she would have to drop out at the eleventh hour. But the singer soldiered through it and would not allow herself to be sidelined.

In her first tweet, Alaina lamented, “Pic # 1 of my ankle! : ( it hurts so bad!!” She posted a second photo a few hours later, writing: “Pic # 2 of my ankle!! : (” The ankle looks a bit better in the second photo, as if some of the swelling had gone down.

Fans offered their digital support for the teen, creating a ‘Get Well Lauren’ hashtag where Idol watchers could send her get well messages.

Alaina is certainly using Twitter to give fans an insider’s views of the goings on at the ‘Idol’ tour. Just a few days ago, she tweeted a photo of herself and tour mate Pia Toscano planting a smooch on Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery‘s cheeks.
