Lauren Alaina was better last night in the finals.
She beat Scotty McCreery head-to-head, and she should be named the 2011 American Idol winner tonight.
But, will it happen?
Scotty gave another great Scotty performance.
He wasn’t bad at all, but he wasn’t good enough to win.
Lauren proved once again that she is the more talented vocalist with far greater range and versatility.
It also didn’t hurt that she got great songs to perform as well.
Will voters get it right for a change?
The last couple of years give me cause for skepticism.
Adam Lambert and Crystal Bowersox both won the head-to-head in my opinion and lost recently.
Will Scotty’s huge following provide the same sort of skewed results this year?
I guess we’ll know soon ….
