The CMA Music Festival went down in Nashville on Saturday night, and the show was packed full of country music's biggest stars. Though two 'newbies' (American Idol's Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina) got a taste of the big stage, and performed with two country music legends.
American Idol winner Scotty McCreery and runner up Lauren Alaina have been given the opportunity of a life time. They have been added to the Grand Ole Opry's lineup for CMA Music Fest week alongside some legendary country artists.
I bet the judges over at America's Got Talent are kicking themselves now for not letting this young star through to the final rounds. Lauren Alaina, runner up for this season's American Idol, tells Jay Leno she was rejected not once, but twice by America's Got Talent!
If you watched Idol last night you might get a kick out of this. We are the only radio station in the world that has a talking chipmunk who likes to chat about Idol. Don't miss a chance to be part of history.
After last night's American Idol, Scotty suddenly looks like the underdog. Lauren was the judge's favorite of the two finalists but I think it's all just a big misdirect - they want you to think it's not Scotty to build the tension. Check out the performances and tell us what you think!
Tonight we get a brand new American Idol and this year is a first in a couple of areas for Idol. It's the first year that both finalists are teenagers and it's the first year that both finalists are country artists. Check out Scotty and Lauren's original songs they sang last night and tell us who you think will be the winner tonight!
If you missed Idol last night or just want another view point on the show, this is for you. If you don't like Idol, but love Billy Idol, this is for you. Or let’s just say you are a fan of Chipmunks, this is definitely for you!!!
