The CMA Music Festival went down in Nashville on Saturday night, and the show was packed full of country music's biggest stars. Though two 'newbies' (American Idol's Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina) got a taste of the big stage, and performed with two country music legends.
American Idol winner Scotty McCreery and runner up Lauren Alaina have been given the opportunity of a life time. They have been added to the Grand Ole Opry's lineup for CMA Music Fest week alongside some legendary country artists.
American Idol winner Scotty McCreery continues to charm - this time with a visit to Live with Regis and Kelly. If you missed the interview or performance of his first single, "I Love You This Big", see them both here...
If you watched Idol last night you might get a kick out of this. We are the only radio station in the world that has a talking chipmunk who likes to chat about Idol. Don't miss a chance to be part of history.
After last night's American Idol, Scotty suddenly looks like the underdog. Lauren was the judge's favorite of the two finalists but I think it's all just a big misdirect - they want you to think it's not Scotty to build the tension. Check out the performances and tell us what you think!
Tonight we get a brand new American Idol and this year is a first in a couple of areas for Idol. It's the first year that both finalists are teenagers and it's the first year that both finalists are country artists. Check out Scotty and Lauren's original songs they sang last night and tell us who you think will be the winner tonight!
Well it's down to the final three on American Idol. Three performances from each of the contestants including a Judge's Choice. And that was no help if you want to know who's going to win because the judges have nice things to say about everyone. Do you still think Scotty will win?
Scotty McCreery is still the odds on favorite to win American Idol this season. Last night he performed Alan Jackson's 'Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning' and got a little manic on a version of the Coasters’ ‘Young Blood’. The judges loved it, what do you think?
