Scotty McCreery won the American Idol battle of the young country crooners Wednesday, pulling in more of a record 122 million-plus viewer votes than competitor Lauren Alaina.

Scotty McCreery, 17, and Lauren Alaina, 16, represented the first all-country finale and the youngest duo ever to compete on American Idol, which is in its 10th season. Alaina performed on Tuesday’s final sing-off despite a vocal cord injury that needed medical treatment. She received raves from the judges, who said she won the night. But the consistently popular McCreery, who’d never been at risk of elimination, claimed the title and a record contract.

    Congrats to Scotty & Lauren for making to the finale! but honestly i think idol is rigged. think about ok, ryan seacrest made it a point to say this is the week daugtry went home then someone who was never in the bottom 3 or even bottom 2 went home james. then scotty & lauren read their text messages from the judges song pick in front of a big crowd while haley reads hers in a car driving down the road then guess what she goes home. then to top it off the person going home is always standing in the same spot as the person who went home the week before. then when scotty performed with the guys & lauren did not perform with the girls i knew then he won and lauren was standing in the losers spot. so im beginning to think it is all setup, rigged however you want to call it. they wanted to make idol history this season so it had to be Scotty & Lauren the 2 youngest singers in the finale..
