Scotty McCreery: New American Idol

The confetti has fallen and a new American Idol has been crowned. Ladies and gentlemen, your season 10 American Idol is -- Scotty McCreery

New judges, online voting and lower age limits were just a few shakeups we had to deal with on American Idol this year, but it was all worth it to see Scotty McCreery take the title.

Scotty McCreery wins American Idol

Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina, two of the show's youngest contestants, brought it like seasoned veterans in a country showdown deserving of our record-breaking 122 million votes. How did the crowning moment happen?

First, the top 13 got down with some Born This Way and the acts just kept coming from there. Everyone from Judas Priest and James Durbin to Bono and the Edge showed up to rock the stage. Did we forget to mention Jennifer Lopez's husband Marc Anthony showed up and she shook her booty on stage with him?

But the night was really about Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina. McCreery got to perform with the great Tim McGraw while Alaina jammed with Carrie Underwood. How cool is it that these young kids got to perform with their idols?

But it was all about the moment of glory -- the crowning moment that can spawn a superstar!

When Scotty McCreery's name was announced as the new American Idol we thought back to the day the judges all wanted us to remember -- when they first discovered him.

He could barely sing his new single I Love You This Big, he was so choked up. He did have kind words in regards to Lauren Alaina: "Me and her have been together since day one and we're gonna stay together." He's such a gentleman.

What did you think of Scotty McCreery's American Idol win?

I agree with Warren & Jamie. Scotty will probably be a 1 hit wonder cuz he's so monotone. Of course the fix was in to get the last 2 contestants, who are mainly country singers together. America didn't vote, the producers of Idol did. The show may be over but the controversy isn't. There were to many great singers voted off this year. Scotty & Lauren were by far from the top 2 best & the smart people know it. Just because Scotty won doesn't make him the best, no matter how many vote Idol says he got.

I think they were all good singers...He has a great deep country voice, besides what does it matter to you...AMERICA HAS SPOKEN, so I guess what you think really doesn't matter at this point. Give the boy his do...You might not like it but he worked hard for it...Good Luck Scotty with what ever you do.

Yaaaaawn. Oh, it's over, Scotty Mc won. I can't see how. He was such a boring singer I fell asleep each time he sang. Of course this was fixed. You tell me, out of all the teeny boppers that are into Lady Ga-Ga would vote for Scotty!!! T think not. I won't be watching AI anymore.
