I guess the question is though, how many Scotty fans are going to refuse to vote for him because he had to sing that Kenny Rogers song? You either like him anyway or you don't.
Actually, it's difficult to predict who will vote for any of them based on those performances. You probably already have your favorite and that's who you will vote for.
I guess its okay to think Haley is being sabotaged, but no one else.

Kenny Rogers song was really a sneaky bad selection for Scotty -- not only stretched him too far, but he was off pitch through much of it.
The country-rock choice was boring, but I feel like that sounded most like what I envision him recording.
I'd be interested to see the real voting breakdowns -- Scotty's fanblock I bet is huge.
For all practical purposes, Scotty seems pretty marketable. Throw in a few songs with some low, low notes on an album, and I think you have a winner.

If Scotty does make it, I hope it does this new song by Chris Young called Tomorrow. It's just beautiful and I can hear him doing it well.
What do you think? Here's a link: (It's from You Tube, I hope it's okay to post it. I checked the rules and didn't see anything against posting it. If there's a problem someone please post or PM me so I can remove it.

for the record though, I love country. I'm from Alabama and have been listening to it all my life. It's my favorite genre. And, I never said Haley was thrown under the bus last night. I just said Scotty wasn't. There's a difference.

"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.' "
