I hate TV talent shows, and I loathe country music. So I can’t believe that 17-year-old Scotty McCreery, a country crooner from North Carolina, was crowned Fox’s Season 10 American Idol tonight during the live two-hour season finale. Can you? Fox says it received a record-shattering total of over 122 million votes. McCreery beat finalist Lauren Alaina, whom judge Steve Tyler declared “The One” after her very first audition. To me, all the contestants on these singing shows sound like cats being strangled.
