Tonight on American Idol 2011, the Top 2, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina each performed 3 songs. Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina’s performances were incredible. But my favorite one is still Scotty McCreery. Here are what the judges, Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler had to say about American Idol 2011 Top 2 performances.
Scotty McCreery Performances
The 1st song Scotty performed tonight on American Idol 2011 Top 2 was Gone. Scotty McCreery couldn’t have chosen a better song. It was the perfect song choice. Next, Scotty performed Check Yes or No. It was also a great performance. But in my opinion, Scotty McCreery’s 1st song was more dynamic than his 2nd song. Scotty’s 3rd song was I Love You This Big. I thought it was a really good performance as always.
Randy Jackson said, “Gone — , I though it was brilliant — I thought I was at a Scotty concert. Then, your version of a George Strait song, I thought the George Strait thing was really good as well.” Randy gave round 1 to Scotty McCreery.
Jennifer Lopez said Gone was amazing. She didn’t think the George Strait song was as dynamic as the first one. Jennifer gave round 1 to Scotty as well. Steven Tyler said he would give rounds 1 and 2 to Lauren Alaina just because she’s prettier. Scotty McCreery agreed with that. And everyone laughed of course.
After Scotty McCreery performed I Love You This Big, Randy Jackson said, ” — the range was great — you’re in it to win it — .I’m proud of you — that was a brilliant vocal!” Jennifer Lopez said, ” — You’re a great story teller on the show — I thought you did an amazing job with that song, a really amazing job with that song.” Steven Tyler said, ” — You take your chances. You ran with it and you got it. You nailed it again.”
Lauren Alaina Performances
Tonight on American Idol 2011 Top 2, Lauren Alaina performed, Flat On The Floor, Maybe It Was Memphis and Like My Mother Does. Randy Jackson said that Flat On The Floor was really good and sounded really good too. Randy said he loved Maybe It Was Memphis.
On Like My Mother Does, Randy said “That was amazing, amazing!” Randy gave Lauren Alaina round 2. In my opinion, I really liked Flat On The Floor, but Like My Mother Does was more than amazing. It was incredible!
Jennifer Lopez said Flat On The Floor was crazy, Maybe It Was Memphis was strong and beautiful. On the third song, Jennifer said, “Lauren with that song, you might just won. That was beautiful — ” Jennifer gave Lauren Alaina round 2 also. Steven Tyler said, “You are in my eyes.”
Randy Jackson gave Lauren Alaina round 3. Jennifer Lopez said it was a tight race. Steven Tyler gave round 3 to Lauren Alaina.
