Lady Gaga Proves a Bit Too Much for Scotty McCreery on 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

Lady Gaga & Scotty McCreery, 'American Idol'Jimmy Iovine summed it up best on 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) when he said, "Scotty McCreery. Lady Gaga. I couldn't think of a better fit."

The two are coming from such opposite ends of the spectrum, it was bound to be uncomfortable when they collided during Gaga's mentor stint this week. McCreery did a lot of awkward laughing, smiling and doing the best he could to look anywhere but directly at Gaga. Apparently, that's just too much for him to handle.

Gaga lost him with her advice as well, telling him to think of the microphone as his girlfriend. "Keep your mouth on that microphone like your life depends on it or that b**** gonna leave you."

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on FOX.

Later Gaga said, "Apparently, he's a bit more conservative than I had imagined." She hoped she hadn't offended him, but McCreery did say he felt like kissing his cross necklace and saying, "Lord, this is not my doing."

Still, sometimes greatness comes from odd couplings, and she did get him even more loosened up and a little bit crazy for his performance of 'Young Blood.' Maybe a little too crazy, based on some of the loopy looks he was giving the camera with his eyes bugged out.

What did you think of McCreery's performances?

Fine that you don't like her, but the excuse that he is a kid? Really Joe? He's 17, my goodness. He will be able to go to war in less than a year!!!
Lady Gaga's not the problem, its people feeling as though they can't be themselves for fear of others judging them. Don't be one of those judgmental guys that people can't be themselves around :)

Scottie is a far better role model at 17 that Lady Gaga will be at 27. He handled himself well,

Scottie is a talented, soft spoken 'country boy' with a fantastic voice. This has got to be one of the hardest things he has ever experienced being well known throughout the American Idol TV viewing public. Scottie's parents have been there for all of the performances and you can certainly see the pride in their faces. No matter what happens on the show, Scottie has a future in music and the ability to be humble.

Whether you like Gaga or not, (and I don't), she said some very inappropriate things to a 17 year old boy.

Do you think we should change the age that people can go to war from 18 to an older age? 17 years old- that is not a BOY or a child. In Louisiana, you are legally an adult at 17. Im just so confused where everyone is getting this young boy thing from. Besides, she was talking about making out with his girlfriend, that's hardly scandalous or inappropriate.

Scotty only showed his innocence in Lady Gaga's critiques and suggestions that he use the mic as his girlfriend, he was embarassed, but did show the utmost respect, took her critques under advisement and handled himself in a mature manner! This is new to him, he's young, humble and a polite gentleman, who did handle this situation very maturely! Scotty did go out, using Lady Gaga's advice and acted quirky in his performance and did sing very well on both songs! Scotty is the real deal!

GaGa is an aquired taste for sure. I think she goes abit far at times but I do think her heart is in the right place for sure. I hope they told her how old these guys were! I felt what she said to Scotty was a bit strong however it did show his innosence in alot of ways. For his age that is refreshing. Two differant worlds for sure. I choose how ever to leave it at that. GaGa knows music and I truly believe she would never do anything to harm another person or embarress them.
