by at . Comments

A record 122 million votes were cast this week on American Idol. And, after all were tallied, who did viewers crown the champion?

Scotty McCreery!
Scotty Wins!

Following an evening that included special performances by Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Bono, The Edge, Gladys Knight, Tony Bennett, Steven Tyler and more, Ryan Seacrest made the announcement that led to screams and cheers from the crowd.

"Never in my wildest dreams," Scotty said upon being crowned victor. "I gotta thank the Lord. He got me here."

So, THG readers, you tell us: Did America get it right?

NOOOOOOOOO America didn't get it right. It was the best American Idol EVER but as far as who the finalist were and who won......BORING.... American Idol is someone who can sing it all .. country, rock, pop, classics, blues, jazz...... America got it SOO WRONG.....James/Casey/Haley...now that would have been a final!!!!!!! worth watching....

Glad to hear that Scotty won, before getting to see him LIVE on American Idol Finale.......you guys need to hold your tongue before ruining it for everyone else.
Thanks again....I am sure American Idol would not like this for their ratings.

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.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

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.
