This is not official by any means but Drudge Report is reporting that Scotty McCreery is winning American Idol almost doubling the vote total of runner-up Lauren Alaina.
If this is true, it explains why Lauren Alaina was apparently favored by producers last night, probably to give her a chance to win. This is only a rumor until there is some verification, but we will know shortly before 10PM ET if Scotty does become the next American Idol.
The front page of the Drudge Report says it is a developing story so check the front page of Drudge to see if there are further developments.
This could be a hoax, so we won’t believe it till Ryan Seacrest tells us who the next American Idol is later tonight.
The doubling the votes of Lauren Alaina just doesn’t sound right to me. The vote should be much closer than that.
