At this point, the AMERICAN IDOL race comes down to two country singers – Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina. They’ve beaten all the odds and are now the Final Two (despite people shocked that frontrunners Casey Abrams, James Durbin didn’t make it – and of course Haley Reinhart missing the coveted Top Two as well).
So now it comes down to who is in it, to win it (Randy Jackson’s catchphrase this season) and tonight, Lauren has to step up her game, shake her usually rattled nerves and show the world why she should be the next Carrie Underwood.
Here are the ten reasons why Lauren will succeed in being America’s second female country IDOL.
1) She has a very powerful voice, especially when it comes to ballads.
2) She was only in the bottom once.
3) “The Climb” – perhaps her best moment on stage all season. When you can best Miley Cyrus and make the song your own – then that says a lot.
4) Haley voters will defect to her, because they’re mad she didn’t make it into the Final Two.
5) She’s a little bit country, a little bit pop making her a little more diverse than Scotty.
6) She has faith and the emotional turmoil of going back to her home town torn apart by a tornado left a lasting impression.
7) She’s not only goody-goody, she has an incredibly bubbly personality and manages to rise above even the most brutal criticism from the judges (okay, the judges were only brutal to Haley, how about, the most “sort of constructive” criticism).
She’s the last girl. No one thought a girl would make it this season after the mass slaughter earlier in the year.
9) Two words: Carrie Underwood – the Sequel
10) She has Christian faith, which brings a strong voting bloc too (although they will be evenly divided between fellow believer Scotty).
Three Reasons Why Lauren Might Not Make It
1) Her nerves might get the best of her
2) Song choice! She’s picked some really bad songs over the course of the season.
3) Scotty fans are legion and will not let a country girl beat a country boy.
