"American Idol" is live as high schoolers Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina try to become the season 10 champion.
She apparently had some issue with her voice. They bring out the doctor, who says she blew out one of her vocal chords during rehearsal. But after they pumped her full of medicine, she'll be fine. Uh, OK.
Scotty is up first, singing "Gone" for some reason. He stalks through the audience; dripping attitude. It's really not a good song for him, even as he shows off his performance skills.
it's just OK for me. Nobody's gonna playing that back to watch it again. Hmm, no judging until after the end of round one. They go straight to commercial break.
