Scotty McCreery, the 10th American Idol

Scotty McCreery, the new star
Scotty McCreery is the new Fox star:

On May 25, 2011 grand finale of 10th American Idol declared Scotty McCreery, a 17-year-old high school student from Garner, North Carolina. The world now see whether he will be a winner in the grandstage of the music world. After performing nearly flawlessly throughout the 10th season of the Fox talent competition, he in a word snatched away the title beating Lauren Alaina.

And he did it with an unwavering commitment to country music — even when challenged with other genres. During the show's installment of Elton John tunes, McCreery uncovered John's "Country Comfort" and made it his own. Jennifer Lopez evaluated him saying, "You have amazing instincts about performing and about what's right for you," Armed with an cool aw-shucks attitude and genuinely goofy grin, McCreery managed to outlast an array of more seasoned and outgoing finalists, such as eccentric 20-year-old jazz lover Casey Abrams of Idyllwild, Calif., wailing 22-year-old rocker James Durbin of Santa Cruz, Calif., and sultry 20-year-old vocalist Haley Reinhart of Wheeling, Ill.


Scott Cooke "Scotty" McCreery  was born on October 9, 1993. From his childhood he used to imitate Elvis Prisley and learned guiter at the age of 10. He attended West Lake Middle School and sang at his graduation. He also attended Garner Magnet High School where he joined a vocal ensemble, Die Meistersingers, that performs across the United States. He started out singing tenor but switched to bass when his voice turned lower in his sophomore year. He won a singing contest called "Clayton Idol" at the Clayton Harvest Festival in Clayton, North Carolina and was one of 36 finalists in a "Rip the Hallways" contest featuring teenage vocalists in North Carolina. He has performed at various local events.

His coronation song is "I Love You This Big." In the Finale he got more than 122 million votes poured in, marking a new record in "Idol" history, bringing the season total to more than 730 million votes- Fox announced.
