Plus, the Kenny Rogers song was not for an young boy either. (Taking off his clothes with the light out so she won't awake! He's 17! I think the judges must have lost their mind on that choice.)

Top 100 ROCK bands of all time. #27 - Fleetwood Mac.
Note the diversity on this list that are all considered Rock. Can't cover any genre with an umbrella and say all the songs are the same.

[EDIT deleting blog address]
I actually looked at that blog comment from Phyllis Stark. Seems she sought out dj's who dislike Scotty and had no problem insulting and personally attacking him. Very mean and uncalled for IMO. Seems many others felt the same way and she was showered with complaints by people who feel differently, including many other radio station announcers in country music. Obviously, they don't know much about Scotty. He's a nice, clean cut guy with talent. I hope they feel very proud of themselves for kicking the guy.
Radio stations in the past have refused to play other artists music too. such as Loretta Lynn, Elvis, Zeppelin, so, I'm not worried.
I suspect Ms. Stark was just trying to garner (pardon the pun) some attention for her little blog.
What in the world are they talking about saying he sounds like other artists? Many male artists and female artists sound similar, especially when they are new. And what songs would he do if he didn't do current hits from other artists. That's what new artists do. They do cover songs.
Here's a link to a response in NewsWeek that says it better than I can.

"Tons of surprises, but it wouldn't be 'American Idol' without it, would it?" Cowell told MTV News. "At the end of the day, I could go out and find 12 great singers, but that's kind of boring. The fact that there's people there who shouldn't be there makes it 'American Idol.' "
