I think it will be between Scotty and James. James has a solid fan base, but so does Scotty. Talent-wise, they are both very talented. James is now the favourite to win, but Scotty is right behind him. Another factor that should be taken into consideration is that James is from California and Californians are not known to support their own. Scotty is from North Carolina, and although NC is not a southern state per se (NC is southeastern state), once Lauren is out, Scotty should be getting the southern votes. My two cents. If I were an American, I'd be voting for Scotty... Scotty is so adorable and when he sings, he makes me swoon. Win or lose, Scotty is going to be a superstar in country music. At 17, this kid can really sing and a great performer to boot. What about you? Who do you think will win?
