Scotty McCreery wins American Idol!

Who would have thought a 17 year old Christian country singer would take the crown? YAY SCOTTY!

He was such a sweet kid all the way through. He sang with confidence and was never once in the bottom three. Best Idol season EVER!

Here's a clip of him singing "Gone":

I really wasn't sure who was going to win, I don't know about you. I excited he won, but I am hoping that he has more success than previous years' contestants have.

Sara: Me, too. He's a terrific singer. I'm not really a country fan, but I like Scotty's voice.

I liked him from the get-go; I've always liked the rumbly deep country music voice - but I would have bet the farm he wasn't going to win - as country seems too "niche-y" for the general public (read: teen girls) who routinely vote. So imagine my delight as Scotty stayed out of the bottom three every week and kept creeping closer and closer to the crown - and then he took it! Huzzah! Thanks for acknowledging NC's homeboy!

Sara: I'm very happy Scotty won. He was truly amazing!

craig: You're right. It was a big surprise that he kept going strong throughout the show. When I first saw him I didn't think we would last, it seemed that Casey and James had a lot more going for them...but here comes Scotty who won the hearts of America! YAY SCOTTY!
