The Final Week For American Idol: Scotty or Lauren?

Yup, I'm an American Idol fan.  I haven't watched all 10 seasons, but I have to say this has been the best season yet.  Unlike past seasons, this one has had the widest range of musical talent in my opinion making it even more difficult to choose a favorite.  Casey and his upright bass made Jazz fun.  Paul brought the folkise style.  James, the "rocker", showed how great rock voices are.  And then there is Scotty and Lauren.

Scotty and Lauren are by far the most interesting in my opinion.  I like country and was really surprised when I heard Scotty's low country voice especially for a teenager.  I liked it, but didn't think it would a popular enough style to get him too far.  Amazingly enough . . . it got him to the final round.  For the country labels, that kid is a dream come true.  When it comes to young people in country, females usually can make waves (i.e. LeAnne Rimes, Carrie Underwood, etc.); but there really never has been an older sounding young male.  What's even more interesting is that this kid is making country cool for a younger generation.  Amazing stuff.

Do I have a favorite or a choice of who wins?  I don't know.  It's really tough between these two.  In either event, I think both have amazing careers ahead of them.  And it should definitely be an on the edge of your seat final week to see who wins.

Who do you think will win this week?
