Scotty McCreery Makes His Father Proud on 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 19th 2011 1:17AM
Scotty McCreery, 'American Idol'With a special two-hour episode tonight, 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) took a little extra time to talk to some of the finalist's families out in the audience. Particular attention was paid to the youngest contestants and their parents.

After Scotty McCreery got rave reviews for tackling Kenny Rogers' 'She Believes in Me,' Ryan Seacrest threw it out to his dad in the audience to get a handle on what it's like as the father of a teenage boy to see your son competing at this level.

"Words really can't describe how proud we all are of him," his father said in a low voice much like his famous son's.

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

Then Ryan asked him to sing what has become Scotty's signature line this season: "Baby lock them doors and turn the lights down low." A little reluctant at first, Papa McCreery proved to be a good sport and went down to his lower register to pull out the line almost as well as his son.

Do you think Scotty did enough tonight to make the Finals?

AMERICA GOT IT RIGHT. - CONGRATS TO SCOTTY AND LAUREN FOR WINNING THE IDOL TOP TWO. SCOTTY WILL NOT ONLY WIN AMERICAN IDOL, BUT WILL BE THE NEXT COUNTRY SUPER STAR AND IS ALREADY A LEGEND IN THE MAKING. HE HAS THE WHOLE PACKAGE. THANKS ALSO TO HIS MOM AND DAD FOR RAISING THIS FINE YOUNG MAN THE RIGHT WAY. HE WILL BE A ROLE MODEL FOR OUR YOUTH AND SOME ONE THEY CAN LOOK UP TO AND ADMIRE NO MATTER WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC YOU LIKE. ONCE AGAIN, AMERICA GOT IT RIGHT.

Scotty McCreery, I'd love to hear him sing, Bon Jovi' s, "Thank You For Loving Me or It's My Life!" Wishing Both Scotty & Lauren all the best! Either one at this point, whether winner of the title American Idol or runner up, each will be successful in their careers in the music industry! Both are genuinely sincere, wholesome and grounded young people, and are truly great role models to look up to!
It's funny when I heard Simon Cowell say to Josh Gracin who was terrific in the country genre, truly had stage appeal, very entertaining, he said, "Country has no place on American Idol." (perhaps not the same words, but close). Yet, when Carrie Underwood appeared on Idol, it was Simon that wanted her to win, and where is she singing? Country! Ruben Studdard was Paula's choice and Fantasia Barrino was Randy's choice to win! Fantasia as winner and Diana DiGarmo, age 16, was runner up!

I think American Idol has outlived its usefulness --neither of this years finalists are anywhere near Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood or Adam Lambert or Clay Aiken

Scotty deserves to be the next American Idol, no doubt about it. He is the next country Super Star and a Legend in the making, so say the judges and all of his millions and millions of fans everywhere. If the VOTE is Honest and not fixed like AT&T did last season to Adam Lambert to which AT&T admitted they did, Scotty will win American Idol. There are many many people out there who say that there is something going on. There has to be some truth to it or how else could haley who was sent home by the judges last year early due to her screaming singing style and yet with her same style and her dis-respect to the judges, her poor attitude, and smart remarks and so full of herself is still there. If we get Honest results SCOTTY IS THE NEW AMERICAN IDOL. GOOD LUCK SCOTTY and GOD BLESS, from all of your fans.

Go Scotty, you are the real thing. In American Idol this year has had so much talent, but the true sound for this time is Scotty. He has just what fans have been waiting for, and Lauren is good too. Scotty brings talent to the stage everytime he sings, is this what we want, yes. Good luck to him and Lauren.
