Lauren Alaina Wins American Idol Season 10!
Who won American Idol Season 10? Will it be Scotty McCreery or Lauren Alaina that takes it home and wins American Idol tonight? Going into last night I think most people thought it was a pretty even race, but I think after the performances last night a winner may have emerged.
Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are very alike. They are both young, yet mature beyond their years. They are both from the south and from small towns and they are both very close to their families. Both have shown emotion this season on the show and both have had some great moments. Both have also seemingly cruised into the finals.
Last night’s American Idol Season 10 penultimate show had Scotty and Lauren each sing three songs, but there was drama right from the start. Lauren blew out a vocal cord during rehearsals and had been under a doctor’s care. There were even last minute news stories that said she wasn’t going to be able to sing and Haley Reinhart would be brought back. But Lauren Alaina gutted it up and went on with the show. She had a few moments where you could tell her voice was not doing great, but she pushed through and put on a great show.
The first two songs by both singers were done very well. The third song was an original song that would be the singer’s first single if they win. This is where American Idol often falls flat because some of the singles they have for the winners are god-awful. Much to my surprise this time they were both good. I actually think Scotty McCreery had the better song and it suits him perfectly, but Lauren Alaina’s delivery and the raw emotion during her song may have sealed the deal for her. There wasn’t a dry eye in the building.
The judges and the crowd seemed to think Lauren won. Even Scotty seemed a little resigned to it. However dialidol.com a website that measures the busy signals on the voting lines and uses that to determine who is getting the most votes says that Scotty will win easily. Of course dialidol.com doesn’t consider the online voting in their numbers.
I think going into the night it was probably dead even, but I think all the drama and the way the performances came down with Lauren going last and bringing the raw emotion she did played to her favor and Lauren reached out and grabbed it. I think the vote will be close, but I think Lauren Alaina will be your next American Idol.
