Congratulations and best wishes to Season 10 American Idol Scotty McCreery and to runner-up Lauren Alaina. What a year!
I thought the finale was the best in a while with many big stars and great numbers: Judas Priest, Mark Anthony, Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, Tony Bennett, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Gladys Knight, Bono and The Edge and more! I really enjoyed Scotty’s duet with Tim McGraw along with all the other performances. It was good to see the top 13 again.
Again, congratulations to Scotty – a county superstar in the making!
The overall mood is ugly with many people over James Durbin’s shocking departure from American Idol last night: http://www.tvguide.com/news/american-idol-backstage-1033032.aspx Many people are swearing they are done with American Idol. There was a similar outcry over Pia Toscano, however, James Durbin was expected, by many people, to win the competition. Durbin’s consistency every week and his ability to pick the right songs to showcase his talent were making him a standout with the judges and fans.
