HOLLYWOOD - One of the nicest contestants to ever appear on American Idol has been chosen as the 2011 American Idol winner.
Scotty "The Voice" McCreery, 17, of Garner, North Carolina beat out Lauren "Peaches" Alaina, 16, of Rossville, Georgia.
This years version of AI quickly turned into more of a country-flavored, Southern fried American Idol version after Illinois native Haley "The Growling Gal" Reinhart was eliminated last week.
Gazebo Serengetti of Bedroom Pillow Talk said that he feels that what hurt Lauren was the fact that she almost always wore those 'out-on-the-trail-drive' funky-looking cowgirl boots.
He noted that had she worn some high heels that would have showcased her legs a little more that she may have pulled in the 12 to 16-year-old male vote.
Serengetti pointed out that he had personally spoken backstage with Haley Reinhart, 20, and she had confessed to him that she made it a point to always dress as provocatively as the American Idol producers would allow her to.
Haley giggled as she said that during the course of the competition she sang while wearing everything from Daisy Duke short shorts to miniskirts that were so short that they barely covered her butt cheeks.
She blushed and told BPT that she had actually planned to wear a two-piece bikini swimsuit on her last performance but didn't when she found out that her dad was going to accompany her on rhythm guitar.
Meanwhile Scotty simply wore jeans and a regular western shirt and when the young man sang little girls, teenage girls, and grandma's swooned to his melodious deep bass voice.
McCreery sang a duet with the legendary Tim McGraw while both sat on quarter horses and Scotty sang like he'd been in the business just as long as McGraw has.
The big question now is whether Scotty is going to remain hatless or get himself a cowboy hat like 93 percent of male country music singers.
One thing for sure, if Scotty does opt for a hat it will no doubt be a white one cause the young man from North Carolina is most definitely one of the "Good Guys."
Scotty was asked what he thought about the movement back in his hometown of Garner, North Carolina to rename the high school that he attends The Scotty McCreery High School. Scotty Mac, as his grandfather calls him smiled and simply said..."Ah shucks."
