Contestant : Scotty McCreery
Voting Number : 1-866-idols-01 03 05 07
Song Title : “Gone”
Judges Thoughts : NONE
Slim’s Score : 7/10 Scotty opens the show with his favorite performance of the year. Not a bad start. Not a great start. Sounded a bit off to me. Hope the other 2 songs are better

Song Title : “Flat On The Floor”
Judges Thoughts : NONE
Slim’s Score : 8/10 A better start than Scotty and Lauren has issues with her vocal cords. Sounded great. Round 1 goes to Lauren.

Song Title : “Check Yes Or No”
Judges Thoughts : NONE
Slim’s Score : 8/10 Sounded better than Scotty’s first performance. Still something doesn’t sound quite right. Must be the fact that they are on the big stage tonight.

Voting Number : 1-866-idols-02 04 06 08
Song Title : “Maybe It Was Memphis”

Contestant : Scotty McCreery
Voting Number : 1-866-idols-01 03 05 07
Song Title : “Love You This Big”
Judges Thoughts : (R) This song wasn’t the perfect song for you but the range was perfect. You are here and you are in it to win it. I am proud of you. That was a brilliant vocal (S) You have come a long way. You nailed it again. (J) You are a great story teller. An amazing job with that song.
Slim’s Score : 5/10 This was the single that Scotty will release if he wins tomorrow night and it was awful. There is no way it will even make the Top 10 on the charts. Straight up garbage.




Contestant : Lauren Alaina
Voting Number : 1-866-idols-02 04 06 08
Song Title : “Like My Mother Does”
Judges Thoughts : (R) Great song. Great ode to your mom. That was the Lauren we grew to love. That was amazing. (S) You just gave it up to you mom. You are in my eyes. (J) You may have just won with that song. It was perfect for you.
Slim’s Score : 8/10 Rock on Lauren. An awesome end to the season. Round 3 goes to Lauren.

Randy : Round 3 goes to Lauren
Jennifer : It’s a tight race
Steven : Round 3 goes to Lauren

Well that’s it folks. The competition is over and tomorrow we crown a winner. I am picking Lauren for the win because she is the under dog but after tonight I honestly don’t think either of them will sell shit for records. What do you think? Who will win? Leave your thoughts in a comment and tune in tomorrow night when Queen Angie blogs the results and crowns a winner.
