LOS ANGELES – Country singer Scotty McCreery won the 2011 “American Idol” television contest.

McCreery, 17, was pronounced the winner in a live broadcast on Wednesday of America’s most-watched TV show. He beat Lauren Alaina, 16, after a record 122 million votes from viewers were counted.

“I gotta thank the Lord first coz He got me here,” McCreery, who won over Lauren Alaina, told American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.

Alaina was reported nursing a slight sore throat the night before.

After being declared winner and singing his final piece, McCreery sat down onstage, misty-eyed, then stood up, stuck out his tongue to catch confetti raining on him. Reuters, InterAksyon.com
