A country/teen finale
This is the first final in a few years where the finalists weren't who I expected. James left early. But at least this is a reasonable competition, if a bit dull in being an entirely country competition.
1. Scotty - Gone
He's ripping this one like he did the first time he sang it.
2. Lauren -
This was a good choice for a reprise, though you can tell there are some laryngitis issues.
3. Scotty -
George Straight picked one of his songs for Scotty to sing. Not sure it's the right sound. It was pretty sleepy. Nice to see him play the guitar.
4. Lauren - Maybe it was Memphis
Good song choice by Carrie Underwood. I can hear the weakness in her voice but she carried it off well.
5. Scotty - Love you this big?
This will be his single if he wins? It's such a sleepy ballad? Are they trying to take him down? One bad note.
6. Lauren - Like my mother does?
Kinda pandering. Oops, painful note. A few off notes in there to me.
Hmmm... I think the better songs were Lauren's but in terms of vocals, I do think Scotty did a slightly better job.
I'll be happy with either kid.
