Fans Speak on Who Will Win American Idol

Buzz Battle: Who Will Be the Next American Idol?

We're just hours away from meeting our next American Idol, and whether it will be Lauren Alaina or Scotty McCreery is anybody's guess. Both have been favorites all season long, though Lauren has spent a little more time in the bottom three than Scotty has. The judges all but named Lauren the victor last night, though ultimately, it's America's votes that count. Fans of the show are forced to pick a side, and we've been picking your brains about your own predictions, based on the season and last night's final showdown. Unsurprisingly, readers have split the love between the two contestants, so check out the arguments for each side:

  • Point: "Scotty, the last song was simply amazing." — Anonymous
  • Counterpoint: "I am thinking Hayley's voters might turn into a few Lauren votes and we can finally have another female winner!" — care0531
  • Point: "Lauren had a better night, but I have a feeling Scotty will win." — ktc71
  • Counterpoint: "I love both of them but I feel that Lauren has got it!" — OoOThisIsMeOoO
  • Point: "I have to go with Scotty all the way. I wanted it to be Casey or James. But, since they voted out James, I genuinely hope it is Scotty." — Ramona Kelley Bishop
  • Counterpoint: "Lauren will win. Plus, they want a female winner this year." —TRH36
