For movie songs week, “American Idol” finalist Scotty McCreery chose the George Strait classic “I Cross My Heart” from the 1992 movie “Pure Country,” you know, getting “back to his country roots.” Heee. What did you think?

We thought it was a very Scotty performance. Perfect choice, very in line with his genre and what we imagine his fans love. It was maybe a tad boring and the big high note at the end wasn’t spot-on, but it was solid.

The judges were gushing. Randy called him “hot,” Steven Tyler said he’s in love with Scotty’s voice and J.Lo said that while it wasn’t her favorite song choice of Scotty’s, he performed it beautifully. We think he’ll be safe for Top 7.

What did you think?
