Scotty McCreery breaks down on visit home on 'American Idol'

The space for rent that is "American Idol" goes overseas, with some Italian boy group with finicky hair singing loudly. They all have big voices and funny facial expressions and the crowd goes wild. Next stop: Eurovision!

Scotty McCreery goes home next, to Garner, N.C. It's a much bigger deal than Haley Reinhart's trip. Tons of screaming girls and a quick visit to his high school, after which he breaks down. Wow, pretty powerful. 

Next is the grocery store where he used to work and there is a huge crowd there, too.. He's overwhelmed again. What a good kid. I think his parade takes part along a gravel road, hard to tell. 

There's a big crowd at the fairgrounds and suddenly Josh Turner shows up as he's singing "Your Man," everyone goes crazy and Scotty's totally surprised. Says "it might just be the best day of my life."

His mom says afterward, "Scotty and I were both in tears a good part of the day.Our town went above and beyond."

Yup, they did. They're gonna be voting big-time next week, too.
