This might be a rough week for Scotty McCreery on American Idol because it is Motown Classics week. Scotty is an old school country singer and he doesn’t hide that fact so having to tackle a classic Motown song this week could be a huge challenge for him. So far he has skated through the competition with his deep voice, good attitude and likeability that has struck a chord with the audience. Now that we are down to just the final 11 things may change. One bad week could be enough to send you home; let’s hope Scotty McCreery pulls it off tonight.

There were no press or visitors allowed inside the rehearsals for American Idol this week so we have no way of knowing for sure what song any of the singers will perform. Scotty McCreery literally has hundreds of songs to choose from, but I would love to see him do the Marvin Gaye classic “I Heard It Through The Grape Vine.” It is a song that is in a key he can handle. He can give it that country twang and make it his own and while it is a song everyone knows it is almost more associated with the California Raisins that anything else so it could be a fun choice.

You can check Scotty McCreery and the rest of the American Idol top 11 out tonight on FOX at 8pm to see them sing live.
