Congrats to Scotty...but wasn't something missing?

  Scotty avoided Archie's 'Red X'  and became Season 10 American Idol.... 1st single should be this... "I LOVE YOU THIS BIG' [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/ZdBm0DvGHLc" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /] Seemed like there was something missing...or someone? Lee DeWyz?..  What happened to the Season 9 winner's performance and passing the title on to Scotty? Archie heard rumbles that A.I didn't ask him to perform, but he thought that couldn't be true, just not right! It was true. Lee commented on his twitter page... Looks like more A.I drama is brewing. With tongues flapping about Scotty & Lauren's quick kiss on stage?? Did you see that? Lauren's response: "I kissed him on the lips, yeah," she told "Entertainment Tonight," before teasing, "He might be my boyfriend, he might not be my boyfriend." When Alaina spotted McCreery walking the press line, she yelled to him: "They asked me if we're dating. I told them to ask you The Summer Tour looks like it's going to be Hot!! Of course A.I doesn't let anything go cold. Season 11 audition cities/dates are lined up. Texas date is in Houston August 26th.. Congrats to Scotty. May he have GREAT SUCCESS and NOT be snubbed from the Season 11 finale. (Lauren too) Time to switch gears from vocals to moves. 'So You Think You Can Dance' season 8 starts tonight on FOX @ 7pm. Mary is back at the judges table. Get ready for the 'Hot Tamale Train'!!

Tough choice...

Either one of them could grab it, because they both did a Great job last night. Lauren really got thru it with strained vocal cords too. True Professionals for sure. Tonight's 2 Hour Finale on FOX will be jammed packed with lots of Fun before Season 10 American Idol is announced. The word is: *Lauren will sing with Carrie Underwood *Scotty will sing with Tim McGraw *Casey A. & Jack Black will do a duet together *Beyonce will perform w/ the Top 13 Girls *U2's Bono & the Edge will perform a number with the cast of 'Spiderman-Turn off the Dark' trying to revamp this show to success *Lady GaGa is suppose to perform (Over the Edge) *Archie's excited to hear that James should perform with Judas Priest maybe bring back 'You've got another thing coming' Who would have thought Judas Priest and American Idol would be in the same sentence. *Haley will duet with Tony Bennett *Tom Jones will perform w/ the Top 13 guys *J-Lo is suppose to perform with secret somebody *Steven Tyler poked fun that a guitar might need to be handy Word is ears heard 'Dream On'  during practice yesterday. Will Aerosmith hit the stage too??? *Also, word is that the 2 remaining TLC members will perform! Archiue's looking forward to this jam packed w/Talent & Fun  AI Season 10 Finale!

Final 2...

Who will take American Idol Season 10 Idol Title?   Scotty & Lauren will perform 3 songs tonight.. The two country-singing teens will take the stage on Tuesday night (May 24) to sing three songs each — one their favorite from this season, another chosen by "Idol" producers and the third picked by one of their personal music idols. According to USA Today, those heroes will be Country Music Hall of Famer George Strait for Scotty and season four "Idol" champ Carrie Underwood for Lauren. Archie is pulling for 'Scotty' to take the American (Country) Idol title! Although he's not a betting doggie on this one, his track record picks this season haven't been on track with  'AMERICA'!   Vegas odds for AI 10
Lauren Alaina 3/1  
Scott McCreery 1/5  
BTW: U2 WILL NOT be performing tomorrow/Wed 5/25 for the A.I finale. Bono & The Edge will be.. U2 are not performing on American Idol this Wednesday. Bono and Edge will appear alongside Reeve Carney, who plays Peter Parker in SPIDER-MAN Turn off the Dark which is set to open on Broadway,  June 14.

4/28 update: Archie has a lot more Love for Carole King. He didn't realize she wrote some many hits. His Fav from last night wasn't Casey, but James, because he did something a bit different, it seemed to work out. Took a bit for Steven Tyler to come on board and like it. Steven mentioned it was the first song he kissed too and other things... that is something Archie's virgin ears/mind doesn't need to hear/ think about... Do you think James could take it? Tonight the results & performances from Crystal Bowersocks (another Archie Fav) & Bruno Mars. 4/27 Update: Newest  People Mag Cover model... "I'm stoned when that curtain drops," adds Tyler, 63. "I just don't snort the curtain dropping. I don't snort J. Lo either, though I do breathe her in." Tyler's nutty, what-will-he-say-next personality has not only catapulted Idol back to must-watch status, it's also turned him into one of this year's most lovable stars." 4/26 Update: The 'SUPER SIX" plus 5 will be hitting the road this summer for the Season 10 tour. The dates/cities released tomorrow, Wed 4/27! .... Stefano is missing from this picture! Archie is giving him this... Whose performance did you like best? Archie gives 2 Paws up to DC, but treats for Katy's costume!!! Katy & Kanye's [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/2jbScK4FE9Y" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /] or David Cook's?
