Scotty McCreery Wins American Idol?

According to Drudge, yes. McCreery has won almost twice the votes of finalist rival Lauren Alaina.

There is talk about American Idol's irrelevancy to today's music, and two country signers in the final makes the point even more, but if Scotty wins, he should do better than other recent Idol winners. He will probably have a long career in country music, which is one genre that a new singer can do well in, with the right voice.

In the previous three years, the winners' trophies have gone to a Cute White Boy Dynasty whose low-key rock styles have been far removed from the techno-fueled sounds which dominate today's pop charts and radio airplay.
As we reach the finish line, the rockers' reign will indeed end this year, but, as it turns out, it will be broken by the only style more old-fashioned than mainstream rock -- country music -- which gave "Idol" both of its finalists in Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina.

It's not just the finalists, however.

Pre-season promises were bandied about doing away with the clunky theme weeks. Not only did they stay in the end, but the show devoted weeks to the song books of Carole King and Leiber and Stoller, composers about as relevant to today's music marketplace as Gilbert and Sullivan.
