Hey TWIST girlies!
Guess who we just chatted with?! Season 9 AI hottie, Tim Urban! Tim, who attended the AT&T Idol celebration before last night's show, dished exclusively to us here at TWIST all about his time on AI last season and also about his prediction for who's going to win tonight's BIG finale! As far as the final two goes, Tim took a bit of a different approach in choosing his winner... he asked his little sister! "From what I've seen, I really like... well, my little sister really likes Scotty [McCreery]!" Tim laughed. "Everybody loves Scotty!" he continued. "They think he's SO cute and they just love his music!" Well, we can't argue with you there, Tim! The country-loving Scotty sure had a good showing last night as he sang "Gone," "Check Yes or No," and his possible new single if he wins, "I Love You This Big."
Lauren Alaina on the other hand, had a bit of a traumatic day as rumors surfaced right before the show began that her voice was shot and she might have to withdraw! Third-place finisher, Haley Reinhart, was called to set and ready to take Lauren's place if need be--talk about drama! Thankfully, Lauren was able to pull through and compete. The southern belle swept fans away with her rendition of "Flat on the Floor," "Maybe It Was Memphis," and her potential first single, "Like My Mother Does." Our go-to AI guy Tim was in the crowd and he shared, "I think it's close because the people that love Scotty also really like Lauren. They both do country, they both have that appeal that they're very young and really fresh-faced. I'm really curious to see what happens!" As are we! Tune in to FOX tonight at 8pm EST to find out who will win Season 10 of American Idol!
