James Durbin was voted off American Idol tonight in what most people would say was a big upset. Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, and Haley Reinhart are the three remaining finalists.
This makes my American Idol Contestants prediction of a Durbin win … WRONG … but I’m OK with that because I’m now rooting for Lauren, who has the country charm that I hope takes her into the final. Scotty’s the big surprise for me even though he’s a great singer – I just didn’t think his sort of “overaged kid” style would do so well but he’d obviously a big hit with the American Idol voting demographic – teen girls.
So we’re almost down to the final, and therefore…
THIS IS AMERICAN IDOL!
