Scotty is a fresh breath of air. Absolutely the best voice and best performances of the group. Loved the duets with him and Lauren. Everyone vote, vote, vote. My husband would never watch American Idol until this year when he heard Scotty he Votes. We are both in our 70's and would like to be adopted as honorary Grandparents!

McCreery deserves a hell of a lot of credit for staying with what he is ...a country singer.
even when the Idol judges tried to push the whole competion towards rock.
He is seventeen and wasn't swayed by the "big name star" judges.

haley's down fall was listening to the judges and trying to be what they wanted her to be.....
she would have come off better if she hasd stuck to her style....what she can sing best.

No singer can sing every style of music well.

Scotty is the best thing that happen in American idol (since Carrie Underwood) because he always true to himself, he is very humble and great model for the young children. Stay true to yourself Scotty and don't listen to the negative criticism. You and Alaina will do well in music industry. Good luck and see you in Washington DC idol tour.
