    Idol's White-Guy Problem

    Scotty McCreery has a good shot at becoming the most successful Idol winner since Carrie Underwood. But, Richard Rushfield says, the show is unfairly fixed—by the audience.

    I don't think Idol has a white guy problem. They have a lack of white guy problems.

    I couldn't agree more. I am getting annoyed that people say that "Country fans are loyal", which they are but Carrie is successful because she is THAT good!!!

    I actually think Lauren will do better than Scotty!

    AI has a teenage girl who will vote, vote and vote again problem.

    Fantasia & Jordin were lucky to be on the show when they were because they wouldn't win now.

    I don't think just because one of the idols do well reflects on what Carrie has accomplish. It is already well documented that just because you win AI
    does not mean you will do well.

    I have already read so many things saying Scotty is gong to be the biggest seller ever from the show, he is going to win the most awards, he is gong to be even bigger than Carrie. I have to laugh, the over exhuberance of some these folks is killing me.

    I like Scotty, he's a cute, nice kid with a good voice. He may sell well at first to all the little girls that voted for him, but he is not going to make pop music, so he is not going to hold their attention very long.

    Agree. I've read comparisons between Scotty, Bieber and Swift. Personally, I don't see anything POP in Scotty; therefore, not much for comparison. Scotty seems like a sweet kid, however, and I hope he does well. Regarding longevity - time will tell.

    He will never be bigger than Carrie - no one can be bigger than Carrie.

    He may not hold the attention of the young girls, but he's got my attention, lol.

    I don't get what this has to do with Carrie either, nothing what any past winner or future winner does has anything at all to do with what Carrie has accomplished.

    What Scotty does is not going to have any effect at all on peoples opinion of Carrie, if after six years people can't see her for what she is they are NEVER going to and nothing will ever change their minds.

    Lol, well, the little girls are the BIG record buyers. I don't have any idea how well he'll do initially, but I think it will be above average just because of his Idol fans. Once the younger crowd decides they don't care for the country music he's making, I hope he'll even out and have a pretty stable career. He just has to get the right music and I have no idea what the right kind of music is for him. Country, I know, but I can't see him doing Jason Aldea/Keith Urban kind of country, and if he does Turner/Jackson/Strait kind of country I won't be buying beyond the first album. He is so young, but his voice and style are old-school country. It will be very interesting to see where he ends up. Somewhere in the middle of those two groups I hope. Maybe kind of a Brad Paisley/Chris Young type of music would be good for him.

    I hope he will finish high school first.

    He's definitely going to college - he mentioned in an interview with Ryan Seacrest that he wants to go to Belmont.

    I am beginning to sound like a Scotty fan but I think he is finishing this yr. At least I know he is talking about enrolling at Belmont and going to college part time. I think he sounds like a solid guy and as bad as that debut song is he sounds pretty good on it. I'm in a wait and see mode for him and will be watching to see if he is able to get a good album out there. I hope they let him do a mature album out so he does not get identified only with the tweens.

    Scotty's voice is good, but he's no Josh Turner. That said, Scotty has amazing communication skills, especially for someone 17 years old. With his ability to communicate and his Garth Brooks like confidence, I think he will do much better than most think. I downloaded Lauren's Idol cd this am and I'm blown away with her sound. Auto tuned or not, she sounds great. Anyway is right up there with Martina's version. When I heard it, I was shocked.
