Scotty McCreery: On to the American Idol Finale?

by at . Comments

With Beyonce serving as his mentor, and with millions of eyes on him last night, Scotty McCreery all but assured himself of a spot in the American Idol finale.

The aspiring country artist went three-for-three in terms of impressive performances, kicking off this week's performance show with a strong ballad. In response to his version of "Amazed," Steven Tyler said what we're all thinking: this guy keeps getting better and better...

From there, Jimmy Iovine selected Thompson Square's "Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not" for Scotty's next cover, breaking out the acoustic guitar for a version of the track that led Randy Jackson to compare the crooner to Garth Brooks.

Ridiculously high praise? Of course. But watch McCreery belt out this tune and also "She Believes in Me" below and it's easy to see why folks are getting carried away.

Would love for Scotty to be introduced to John Denver's songs, if he doesn't already know them. Would be great for him and Lauren to sing "Take Me Home Country Roads" on tour;audience participation song, feel good. Also, some other JD songs would be good for him.

i am so happy that Lauren and Scotty made it!!!i love to hear Haley is going home already!bwahahaha!i don't really like her..they all have great voices..but i think America love great voice with amazing personality too..Haley (and her fans) just thought she's the best and never accepted criticisms, that made her not deserving to win!i love Lauren and Scotty just doing their best and humbly embracing everything people are throwing to them, whether critics or praises, that made them deserving to be the final 2!

I post this alot, but I'm not a country music fan. But Scotty makes me LOVE it!!!!! His voice is so classic, like the old country albums my grandfather loved back in the 60's. He is so sweet and wholesome, you just wanna eat him up!!!

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.
