The 2011 American Idol is...

Posted: Thursday, May 26, 2011 by Travis Cody in

So I'm working on making my blog rounds, but this has been a week.  I'll be around soon.  In the meantime...

For the third straight season, we were not compelled to vote for any of the American Idol contestants.  We were satisfied to record the performance shows and fast forward through most of the stuff and the things to get to the music, then check the results online.

Unlike the last two years, we didn't download any of the studio recordings from any of the contestants.  That's not to say we didn't think they were talented.  On the contrary.  We thought this was one of the most talented groups of all 10 seasons.  We just didn't find any of the recordings to be a must have.

So who jointed this list of winners?

Season 1, Kelly Clarkson
Season 2, Reuben Studdard
Season 3, Fantasia Barrino
Season 4, Carrie Underwood
Season 5, Taylor Hicks
Season 6, Jordin Sparks
Season 7, David Cook
Season 8, Kris Allen  
Season 9, Lee DeWyze

For Season 10, your American Idol is...

Scotty McCreery

Congratulations young man!

Tune in tonight for the first round of regional auditions for Season 8 of So You Think You Can Dance.  And cue LEGSSES...I mean music!


  1. Sounds like you're losing some interest in Idol.

  1. 'cue LEGSSES'


  1. Charles: Perhaps a little. I still watch it, but there hasn't been anyone before or since Taylor Hicks who has made me pay rapt attention and spend time voting.

    Julia: They are outstanding LEGSSES and should be cued.

  1. Scotty Scotty Scotty..what a bright future you have. Congrats to him.

    Lauren Alaina will also have a recording career. She deserves it as well.
