American Idol: Lauren Alaina VS Scotty McCreery

American Idol’s Country Singers: Lauren Alaina versus Scotty McCreery

Okay, American Idol fans, tonight is elimination night and one more contestant will be out of the running. There are still seven talented individuals in it to win it, but let’s be on honest, there are only two we really care about around here: Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery. Both are country, both have been kept in by fans up until this point, and both are loved by the judges, so who would it be saddest to lose tonight? It’s a good question, and in my mind, there’s a very simple answer: Lauren. I’m sure there are those who would disagree, but because of her talent and lovableness, Alaina is my pick for winnner!

It isn’t that Scotty is devoid of talent, I just think that in comparison to Alaina, Lauren is more of the “whole package” that McCreery is. Lauren has a brighter and more engaging stage presence. She sings, and you get lost in her performance. She absolutely gives it her all, and her personality shines through every single time. Scotty, on the other hand, doesn’t do much more than sway on stage. Lauren has plenty of confidence while also being relatable. Scotty also possesses confidence, but to me he come across as more smug than down to earth. A good way to gauge the divide between Lauren and Scotty is by seeing them sing together.

Check out their duet here.


So, if it came down to Lauren Alaina versus Scotty McCreery, I hope Lauren stays.
