Scotty and lauren dating ryan seacrest
For Fox, it's affirmation there's still life in the series that's had a long ratings reign as No. There was drama during Tuesday's performance show when Alaina of Rossville, Ga., required medical treatment for a vocal cord injury suffered during rehearsals for Tuesday's performance show.
She soldiered on with three tunes, drawing high praise from the Fox TV show's judges.
It was the first all-country finale for the Fox singing contest, now in its 10th season.
Mc Creery's victory Wednesday continued a recent pattern: He's the fourth male in a row to win "Idol." The last female to win was 17-year-old Jordin Sparks in 2007.
When asked if they were a couple Mc Creery’s victory was announced on the star-studded finale show at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles where Beyonce, Lady Ga Ga and Jennifer Lopez all strutting their stuff on-stage in a sparkling array of extravagant outfits.
Scotty Mc Creery is the new "American Idol," defeating fellow country crooner Lauren Alaina.
"You pay for it dearly the next day," he said, adding that Alaina shouldn't be affected because she was on stage briefly Tuesday.
"Going into tonight, Scotty definitely had an edge and he may still have a slight edge," Jackson said.
But Alaina "was the best tonight." Both are impressive singers for the show's "first-ever, all-country final," he said. I just go, `Wow.' They embody what this whole show is about." Alaina's other tunes were Carrie Underwood's "Flat on the Floor" and Pam Tillis' "Maybe It was Memphis," which was selected by former "Idol" winner Underwood.
Like a football team that prefers to receive rather than kick off, it was a savvy move on Alaina's part given that the person who performs last usually has as advantage ...
and the Georgia songbird is going to need all the help she can get against the overwhelming favorite.
Alaina competed in Tuesday's final sing-off despite a vocal cord injury that required medical treatment.
