Scotty McCreery revealed over Twitter that he very nearly didn’t appear on American Idol, as his song choice of “Your Man” by Josh Turner had not been cleared.
“Miraculously, about 15 mins b4 my audition they told me they got it cleared! If that had not happened, we would’ve never got to hear Stevens crazy line, and who knows if I’d be here today!”
If he hadn't been able to perform the Turner track, McCreery would have auditioned with “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra. “Imagine that in my country voice, haha,” he tweeted. He also said that producers suggested he sing “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga.
