American Idol 11 (2012) Scott Dangerfield Predictions and Spoilers

Updated on January 7, 2012

According to TheIdolPad, returning contestant Scott Dangerfield has made the Top 42 round on American Idol 11. Scott was an early favorite after the airing of the initial auditions of American Idol 10. He surprisingly never appeared again after that during Season 10.

As it turns out, Scott was scheduled to do some student teaching during the time of Hollywood Week, so he was forced to drop out of Idol. While some may think that is crazy, reasonable people look at Idol as, at best, a Hail Mary shot at real success even for a great singer. He may have felt that setting up a potential teaching career was an important first step. This is particularly true when we see how many great singers get cut and never go on to have successful singing careers.

At any rate, Scott is apparently back and in the Top 42. Judging from his American Idol 10 audition, Dangerfield seems to have a great deal of soul in his voice and performances. He has a good range and emotion in his voice. Although his sound does not seem current, that has never really been a good indicator of Idol success. Otherwise, Taylor would have never won, and Chris Daughtry, whose sound is current within the rock genre, would have easily won.

In the end, it's still hard to predict how well Dangerfield can do in American Idol 11. What we have heard so far is one high-quality, soulful audition that was not even a full song. At first thought, Scott is similar to Taylor when it comes to the soul in his voice. What we saw with Taylor Hicks, though, is a great stage performer. We don't really know what Scott has in store for use in that department, but he seems more laid back than Taylor so far.

Singing wise, Scott is likely to be one of the better singers for the 11th season of American Idol. To win, though, he probably needs to show some different sides. If he can nail upbeat songs as well as he can do the soul songs, then we may have a real contender here. Although versatility is not absolutely required (see Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery), it sure helps when you don't have the "apple pie" and "young hottie" vote that Scotty surely received. If the producers give Scott a chance at the voting round and a decent edit, his soulful voice should take him pretty far in the competition. I would predict Top 10 but not much more unless we see more versatility.
