With these differences noted, we can look to last year’s finalists as a better example. Both Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery were country artists through and through. They both performed consistently well and the judges constantly seemed torn between the two of them. They both held their own throughout and seemed neck and neck the whole competition. But, in the end, Scotty won.
Unlike Jessica and Phillip, Lauren and Scotty are very similar artists (I imagine they’ll be doing a duet on Scotty’s next album if Interscope has anything to say about it), but Scotty won. Why is that females on American Idol just can’t win?
