scotty idol 320 Scotty McCreery performs 'Letters From Home' on 'American Idol'

“You’re going to be receiving a lot of letters from home,” Steven Tyler told 17-year-old Scotty McCreery after his performance during “American Idol’s” Mar. 1 episode. Yes, it was a pretty cheesy statement, but still true. Scotty is definitely one of the fan favorites out of the Top 12 guys.

McCreery stuck to his roots and went full-out country, deciding to perform John Michael Montgomery’s “Letters From Home.”

Scotty’s voice sounded great and the song was the perfect choice for his fanbase.Tyler praised the song choice and said it was beautiful, Jennifer Lopez told him he was born to do country music (we concur!) and Randy Jackson, the toughest judge out of the three to please, also dug it.

We’re going to be bold here and say we’re about 95% sure Scotty will be advancing to the Top 12. What do you think, Zappers? Were you as charmed by Scotty as we were?
