Idol Viewers Love Scotty This Big

Over 122,000,000 votes have been counted. 125,000 people auditioned for American Idol season 10. Only 327 advanced to the Hollywood rounds. The judges narrowed it down to 168 in the first Hollywood round. They narrowed it down to 101 in the second Hollywood round, and down to 61 in the third Hollywood round. They narrowed it down to 40 in the Las Vegas round. After they narrowed it down to 24, the voting rounds began. During the semifinal week, the pool of contestants was narrowed down to 13, and after that, one finalist is eliminated week by week until it is down to Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina.  As predicted on the Internet, the teenage country boy Scotty McCreery, who hails from Garner, North Carolina, has been crowned the tenth American Idol. Therefore, Lauren Alaina is the runner-up.  How Scotty McCreery won is going to be used against him, because he won based on popularity and due to vote concentration. He has overtaken Jordin Sparks as the youngest American Idol winner. James Durbin should have won instead of him. McCreery's first single is "Love You This Big." Country music is my least favorite music genre. Will Scotty's Idol fame be a flash or a fixture in country music?

Here is how season 10 went:

Winner: Scotty McCreery
Runner-up: Lauren Alaina
Third Place: Haley Reinhart
Fourth Place: James Durbin
Fifth Place: Jacob Lusk
Sixth Place: Casey Abrams
Seventh Place: Stefano Langone
Eighth Place: Paul McDonald
Ninth Place: Pia Toscano
Tenth Place: Thia Megia
Eleventh Place: Naima Adedapo
Twelfth Place: Karen Rodriguez
Thirteenth Place: Ashthon Jones

The top 11 will be participating in the American Idols LIVE! Tour 2011, which will begin in West Valley City, Utah, on July 6, 2011, and end in Rochester, New York, on September 10, 2011.

Im happy Scotty won, but I'll be overjoyed to see James Durbin win. Sadly he was only top 4, I wish Haley was voted off instead James.
