Scotty McCreery Makes Top Two, In It to Win It on 'American Idol'

"After 95 million votes the first person with a shot at the title is Scotty McCreery," American Idol host Ryan Seacrest dramatically announced last night.

Just like that, Scotty advanced to the finals on American Idol last night. The part-Puerto Rican country crooner was the first contestant to find out he would have a chance to perform in the final round of the singing competition, to be determined by a live vote next week! The 16-year-old will be facing Lauren Alaina in the finale.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
