Scotty McCreery was definitely all right, mama, with a fun, spirited performance of an Arthur Crudup-penned Elvis Presley hit on American Idol Wednesday night.

He may still be a step below James Durbin among the guys on the show, but he’s clearly getting more comfortable on stage, and this effort felt pretty natural.

“This is like a new Scotty! We’ve never seen this side! Scotty is in it to win it!” Randy said, and while he’d say that no matter what, Scotty was pretty good.

Watch him perform “That’s All Right, Mama” and see if you agree:
