Scotty McCreery Goes Swingin' on Idol

by at . Comments

Scotty McCreery made us rethink putting him atop our American Idol rankings prior to last night. His rendition of "Swingin'" was alright, just not spectacular.

It was an odd choice, first of all, given that it's a John Anderson song from the '80s performed on 21st Century Night (yes, LeAnn Rimes covered it recently).

LeAnn's version wasn't a huge hit and neither was Scotty's. He had a blast and showed his considerable vocal skills, but somehow left us wanting more.

Were our expectations just too high? Watch and see what you think:

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
