The audio is below, set into a YouTube video of a picture of each Idol.

Lauren took the stage first and sang “Blue” by LeAnn Rimes – wow. We wish she had done this song during the season, it sounds absolutely great on her voice. It’s also adorable how nervous and excited she is. After “Blue,” Lauren sings “Like My Mother Does,” her coronation single.

Scotty was next and he sang his coronation single “I Love You This Big” and George Strait’s classic “Check Yes or No.”

What do you think, Idol fans? We think it’s great these two country fan kids get to live out their dream of singing at the Opry.
