The final two contestants standing on American Idol season 10 are the following (description courtesy of Wikipedia):
Lauren Alaina (born November 8, 1994) is from Rossville, Georgia and 16 years old at the time of the show. She auditioned in Nashville, Tennessee with Faith Hill’s “Like We Never Loved At All” and Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” which she also reprised for the Hollywood rounds. She also performed “Unchained Melody” twice, once for the first solo in the Hollywoods round and again for the final solo. She also performed Soul Brothers Six’s “Some Kind of Wonderful” in a girl group which was notable for getting Steven Tyler to sit on the chair while they performed around him. She performed “Hello, Goodbye” for the Las Vegas’ Beatles round with Scotty McCreery and Denise Jackson.
Scotty McCreery (born October 9, 1993) in from Garner, North Carolina and was 17 years old at the time of the show. He auditioned in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with Josh Turner’s “Your Man” and Travis Tritt’s “Put Some Drive In Your Country”. He reprised “Your Man” in the Hollywood rounds but forgot the words to Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance”. He also performed “Get Ready” with the group “The Guaps” and became involved in the drama when the Clint Jun Gamboa ousted young Jacee Badeaux from his group. For his final solo he performed Josh Turner’s “Long Black Train”.
Have you ever thought Lauren and Scotty will make it to the final 2? From the start of the season I thought it’s going to be a battle between Pia Toscano and James Durbin. But America is looking for something different now. Perhaps a country Idol this time?
Who will emerge victorious among the two, the guy or the girl?
