This season showed us that women are more persistent than men or that they were more successful at their determination to make it to Hollywood.  Haley, and Pia joined three previous females  and two male Next American Idol hopeful; proving that persistence will make you an American Idol Win or Lose.

Previous season persistent contestants included: Season 6 Chris Richardson, Season 7 Chikezie, Season 7 Lacey Brown, Season 8 Jessica Furney and Season 9 Jessica Cunningham.

Season Ten 2011 was a special  and considered by many as the best season to date. This seems to be an unanimous opinion from those fans that I have spoken with. The first reason maybe is that the show focused more time on the truly talented of those who auditioned and less on those who hopefully didn't quit their day jobs or continuing their education.

Another reasons included the fact that the producers shorten the time to widdle down the 300 plus who auditioned to reach the finale 13 to be voted upon by the American viewing audience. This process quickly presented the viewing audience the most talented and most interesting individuals that they wanted to root for.

An additional important consideration was that the contestants were not force to sing out of the genre that they were comfortable. This also allowed the viewing audience to evaluate their favorite contestant as they would continue their musical career after the season's show ended.

More importantly the producers further held true to their word that would work with the artist to improve their performances for episode to episode.  And they did, the contestants were not just told what to do, but were given opinions, suggestions, and advise to support them so that you can improve in all areas with each of your stage performances.

Jimmy Lovine stated, we're going to try every week to bring the artist along, really give them some input - and we're going to try to show that.  They brought both entertainers as well as producers which included the likes of;  Timbaland, Polo, Rodney Jerkins, Rock Mafis,  Jim Jonsin,  Tricky,  Ron Fair, Don Wood, Polow Da Don and Lady Gaga etc. 

There influence can be viewed on my youtube videos under the name of joeyverola or going to www.TheAmericanIdolBook.com and clicking on a specific weekly American Idol episode.

It will be interesting to follow both Scotty and Lauren especially considering that they have not yet graduated High School. Will they continue on to college or focus on their musical careers. Will they make enough money to become emancipated and turn into Brittney Spears disasters. I hope they both deal better with success.

To date we have six male verses four female Next American Idol. However, in my opinion, I don't think the American Audience prefers males, but I believe more women vote than men and most girls like boys.

Scotty McCreery:

Like all past Next American Idols Scotty had the following in common:

  • Seriously began singing at an early age
  • He had more experience performing in front of live audiences than many of the finalist
  • He plays an instrument, seven of the other Winners also did
  • Along with Carrie Underwood and Taylor Hicks Country music was his genre
  • Scotty, Jordin Sparks and Fantasia were teenagers
  • He and Kelly Clarkson were the only true amateur performer prior to American Idol
  • He has the  x-factor

All of Season Ten Contestant's Comparison:

  • Only Scotty and Lauren genre was Country
  • Five of thirteen contestant's genre included Pop
  • Three of Thirteen contestants' genre included Rock
  • Five of ten contestants included rock as a genre
  • Jacob was the only one who's genre included Gospel
  • Haley and Jacob were the only two that included Jazz as a genre
  • Five of all contestants include R&B or Blues
  • Karan Rodriquez was the only one to include a Latin genre. She was second to leave. Ashton Jones was first and there is question to her main genre encompassed.
  • As for Race Six of thirteen were white, three white/Latino and three were African American
  • Eleven of thirteen had varied levels of performing in front of live audiences
  • Three of thirteen had some semi to professional experience.
  • Seven of thirteen plays an instrument, with Casey Abrams being the most versatile.
  • No Nic Names this season

Contestants Marketing and Promotion:

In Step Five of The American Idol Book stressed the importance marketing and promoting yourself. On the top of list in marketing and promoting yourself was building a personal website. Along with a personal website Step Five also provides additional recommendations and suggestions.

The American Idol website provided all of the thirteen contestants links to facebook.com, twitter.com, myspace.com, an American Idol friends page and a American Idol webpage. None of these links provided the contestants any real ability to promote themselves to gather votes.

This season only Paul McDonald  had a personal website. Paul placed eight in season ten. Did his website help prevent him from dropping out earlier, I believe so. However, combining Paul's ability to stay in the game longer Paul has and continues to use his website to promote his band, his records and his career. Paul is a true Full Time Professional. He didn't become The Next American Idol but did become an American Idol winner. Paul maintains two websites as he remains on the American Idol Tour ( http://www.thepaulmcdonald.com and http://www.thegrandmagnolias.com.)

By the time the season ended all of the other male and female contestants had a webpage at AmericanIdol.com and all except for Ashton Jones had a webpage on wikipedia.org as of August 4, 2011.

Contestant's Post Idol Success:

As for Post Idol Success as of today August 4, 2001. Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Pia Toscana, Hailey Reinhart and James Durbin have received recording contracts.

Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, and James Durbin, have released a Wal-Mart Exclusive EP with her highlights from season 10 on American Idol.

Paul McDonald has an established professional career and American Idol will surely increase his popularity.

Aside from Scotty, of all the other male contestants my guess James Durbin and Casey Abrams will go on to establish themselves as unique artist. As Jacob Lusk I believe he will continue with a modest but long career in Gospel and R&B. And for Stefano Longone time will tell depending on his personal perseverance.

As for the balance of the ladies, in my opinion, Pia Toscana will be a superstar. Haley is a seasoned performer and in my opinion she will continue to grow and be quite successful.  Naima Adedapo and Tia have live performance experience and are strongly committed to their careers. As for Karan Rodriquez I like to believe she will do well as Latin entertainer. Finally as for Ashton Jones little is known about her pre American Idol debut and I wish her luck.

Future Contestant's Check List:

If you are planning to compete to become the Next American Idol as you review the winners and runners-up, here are a few questions you may want to think about:

  • How much did the opinions of the judges affect the votes?
  • Were the judges’ picks the same as the audience’s?
  • Which of the judges were easier on contestants and most important to influence?
  • Were the favorites of the judges the favorite of the voters?
  • Should I get a choreographer?
  • Which contestants were the most improved?
  • What did you learn to do from the winners and what did you learn not to do from the runners-up?

The Boys and Men of American Idol Season Ten 2011:

Season Ten - Scott Cooke McCreery - October 9, 1993

Starting early, Scotty won a singing contest called "Clayton Idol" at the Clayton Harvest Festival in North Carolina. He  was also one of 36 finalists in a "Rip the Hallways" contest featuring teenage vocalists. Scotty didn't deny he was a Puerto Rican county singer, "Yes, I'm Puerto Rican," and with a smile stated. "I have a little bit of J.Lo in me."[1]

Strengths: As a child Scotty loved to impersonate Elvis and began playing a guitar at age ten. He later sang at his high school graduation. His pre-idol experience included performing through out the US singing with the Die Meistersings a vocal ensemble. Up until his sophomore year Scotty sang as a tenor.

Adversities: His right leg is shorter than is left causing his head to tilt. Not true.

Post-American Idol: Scotty received a $250,000 singing advance with Mercury Records of Nashville for his first album. Scotty's coronation song I love You This Big hit the Country billboard charts at # 32, selling over 171,000 in the first week. Along with the top 11, Scotty is touring with the American Idols LIVE! Tour 2011.

Closing Comments: Along with Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks, David Cook and Lee Dewyze, Scotty never fell into the bottom 2 or 3 during the season. At age of 17, he is the second youngest Idol winner behind season 6 winner Jordin Sparks.

Closing Comments: He was the lowest vote receiver on the Top 11 result show and became the third finalist to be saved by the judges.
