American Idol
2011: Scotty McCreery

We called this long ago! Today, country singing Scotty McCreery is officially the Season 10 American Idol.

Last night, we were thoroughly entertained by performances from JLo and Marc Anthony, Steven Tyler, Beyonce, Bono, Kirk Franklin, Judas Preist, Tony Bennett, Lil Jon, and TLC. However, the main entertainment favorites were performances by our two finalist, Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery. Scotty partnered up with Tim McGraw and sang “Live Like You Were Dying”, while Lauren sang “Before He Cheats” with Carrie Underwood!

As the final minutes of the two-hour show approached, Scotty McCreery was announced as the winner and Lauren couldn’t of had been happier for him. “I knew Scotty was gonna win,” she said. “I knew in my heart and I accepted it. I couldn’t pick a more perfect person to get second place to. I know that’s cheesy, but he’s my best friend.”

We love them both! If you missed it, check out the finale below!
