Scotty McCreery is off to a solid start at the latest American Idol champion.

A compilation of studio performances by the country crooner has been downloaded 23,000 since the season 10 finale, landing Scotty at number-12 on the Billboard chart.

How does this compare with other famous Idols?

Season 9 winner Lee DeWyze moved only moved 2,000 downloads in the same time frame, while Kris Allen settled at 10,000. His season's runner-up, Adam Lambert, sold 16,000.

As for Lauren Alaina? She also outperformed Kris and Lee with her digital set: it debuted at #42 on sales of 11,000.

Get over Adam... he is a loser.. I used to really like him, but he has nothing on tis years IDOLS!! They will still be rocking at the bank long after Adam is broke and begging for change on 9th and Vine. If e has not even broke 1 million records sold in 2.5 years, I doubt he will ever break the million marker. Too bad cause he had promise...

Amalia, I WAS responding to the article that was comparing Scotty to former idols, hopefully clarifying this statement:
"while Kris Allen settled at 10,000. His season's runner-up, Adam Lambert, sold 16,000..." - a statement that doesn't tell the whole story. :) Peace.

Leslie, This article was about Scotty. Why did you start compiling numbers from Season 8 : Allen vs Adam? What's the point? I thought you were supposing to be over that season 8 by now. lol....LOL

"I thought ADAM's rendition of NO BOUNDARIES was done Beautifully ... not Kris' however ..." In your dreams Tess (former Claymate).

Let me explain: Adam sold 200,000 + from his first ALBUM (For Your Entertainment). The author of this article talks about downloads immediately after American Idol: this is a different product. I don't know exactly how many downloads Adam sold after AI.

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.
