'American Idol': Q&As With the Top 13!

Some excerpts:
QUOTE

What sets you apart from the other contestants?

Scotty McCreery: Definitely it's that I am representing country [music]. Me and Lauren Alania for sure. I'm a deep voiced country guy and no one expected that voice from me when I opened my mouth. And I grew up on the throwback songs so that's what I gravitate toward singing. Lauren Alania has a little bit more of the pop country sound like Carrie Underwood.

Seacrest informed the audience that Oprah had stopped by overnight and left Idol Anniversary CDs under each chair. Led by Scotty, the front row of the Top 12 looked under their seats as well. Alas, no CDs for them. Suckers!

And there we went again, as Lee sang his newest single “Beautiful Like You.” The Top 12 rocked their heads — such good sports, they are — while Scotty had particular trouble figuring out how to clap in rhythm.

'American Idol' Report Card: Scotty McCreery Rules Rock And Roll Night

IPB Image

Excellent
Scotty McCreery: He Who Shall Soon Sell Millions of Records promised to transform himself into a rocker for an Elvis Presley cover, but Scotty couldn't ditch his country vibe if he hopped in a Ferrari and floored it. During his honky-tonk take on "That's All Right, Mama," the 17-year-old was loosey-goosey and loving being up on the stage. Oh, and he sounded great, too — like a true country pro. Scotty's starting to believe he might win this thing. He's not wrong.

http://www.cmt.com/news/cmt-offstage/16619...ge-strait.jhtml

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that's happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

I like George Strait a lot. But not in a closed-minded way, like as if no one but Strait can ever do Strait songs justice. On the contrary, actually. Strait covers are some of my favorites. And after Wednesday night's (April 13) American Idol, when the aw-shucks contestant of the season Scotty McCreery, got up onstage and did "I Cross My Heart," I thought it was close to perfection. After toying with the idea of singing "Everybody's Talkin'," he decided to stick close to his country roots. And here's what the judges had to say. Steven Tyler: "I just love your voice, man. I think all of America has fallen in love with your voice. You picked the just-right song." Jennifer Lopez: "Everybody wants us to be tough with you guys, but the truth is, you're so damn good. All I really want to say is 'Wow.' You performed it beautifully." Randy Jackson: "I actually love you singing George Strait. My motto in life: If it ain't broke, don't even consider fixing it, right? I'm a huge, ginormous fan." Not sure what Jackson meant by the "if it ain't broke" comment. Maybe that no one should even try to sing Strait? But this time, I'm so glad someone did. I'll bet even Strait himself is glad.

http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1662786/a...-mccreery.jhtml

Here's an excerpt from an article on mtv.com. I don't know if I agree with the song choice, but this is what the writer said:

'American Idol' Preview: How Will Scotty McCreery Do On Carole King Night?

Scotty McCreery: As we predicted last week, Scotty's likely in for a back-from-the-brink performance, not because he bombed last week, but because the judges decided to slam him for no apparent reason other than that resurrection narratives make good TV. Truth is, the 17-year-old remains the "Idol" front-runner. Heck, he could sing "Old Smokey Locomotion" and the voters would come on in droves for him. But that'd just be absurd. If he wants to switch things up a bit and bring a rock vibe to his country-strong performance, "Hi-De-Ho" by Blood, Sweat & Tears would be a fine choice.

This article from zap2it.com ranked Scotty as the best of the night! spaz.gif

http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/20...king-night.html

1. Scotty McCreery, "You've Got a Friend"

Jimmy Iovine and Babyface are trying to work on Scotty being smoother and a little more interesting and subtle with his vocals. Yes, definitely something for him to work on. He starts singing and ... this is gorgeous. Perfect choice. He is having some absolutely beautiful tiny little runs in his lower register that make it distinctly Scotty. The only thing I wish he was doing was sustaining the high notes a little more. He does it on one, so we know he has it in him, I think. I was getting a little bored with Scotty up to now, to be honest, but this is wonderful. His votes will be through the roof.

Eerily, Randy says the exact same thing - wonderful performance, but hold the high notes. He is in my head. I love how when Randy says he's going to give one criticism, Scotty goes, "Please." He's so polite! Tyler says never sang better, J.Lo pointedly says when we hear you do a song like that, that's why we couldn't let you get away with last week's performance. Nice one, J.Lo. Very good critique and with a little snark.

SCOTTY MCCREERY STEPS OUTSIDE OF HIS COMFORT ZONE ON TONIGHT’S ‘AMERICAN IDOL’

This performance was Scotty McCreery at his softest and most refined, but he never sacrificed one ounce of depth or what he does best. Midway through the song, when he pulled out his big gun (aka his deep voice), it was that much more powerful, since it was juxtaposed against mellower, beautifully delivered notes. We never ever saw this range from him!

The competition is down to the wire and Scotty McCreery took us on a new journey tonight, all the while reminding us why we have accompanied him since day one!

TV Line

http://www.tvline.com/2011/04/american-ido...10-carole-king/

In all seriousness, though, in this, the ninth week of live performances, we may have finally witnessed a genuine Idol Moment for the likeliest Season 10 winner, and it came just seven days after getting his first solid, actionable dose of constructive criticism from the judges. (Ahh…the magic that can happen when the judges stop handing out gold stars and actually focus on doing their jobs.) And it wasn’t just the restraint on the chorus, but also the intensity with which Scotty tore into lines like “take your soul if you let them — but don’t you let ‘em” and that closing run of “I’ll be there, and I’ll be there, and I’ll be there.”

Just ranting here - I hate reading the comments section on TV Line - they sucked big time thumbdown.gif !!!

This article also says Scotty was the best of the night! clap.gif

Scotty McCreery's performance of “You Got a Friend,” was not only his personal best but also the best performance of the season. He even held his microphone the normal way! Finally a contestant experiences a real moment on stage and the normally jubilant judges opt to be tepid!? Randy said it was excellent but warned Scotty not to fall off the high notes and Steven Tyler said he doesn’t think Scotty ever sang better. OK that is high praise, but where was the enthusiasm and cheering? A


The article later said this about James: The performance was exceptional, just not quite as exceptional as Scotty’s.
