We showed you the debut video for American Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina's new video yesterday. Today, we give you the debut video from the winner of American Idol, Scotty McCreery. "I Love You This Big" is his newest and first video.
The video was shot by Shane Drake while Scotty was in rehearsals for the American Idol tour. It was shot in Angels point, with Dodger stadium on one side and downtown L.A. on the other side.
“We found this park that had a little country feel to it and it all worked out,” he says. “If I hadn’t told you that, you would think we would have shot that in North Carolina. The music video has a summertime barbecue feel, like a July Fourth party with fireworks and hot dogs and families.”
North Carolina in L.A.? Hmm. Scotty wants to drop the news first on his own site www.scottymccreery-official.com before other places like us so the fans who supported him on Idol can get the news first.
Scotty is currently on tour with the AI tour through September and will be on Good Morning America this Friday. We hope he doesn't have a nip slip like Nicki Minaj had last Friday on Good Morning America. What?
Check out "I Love You This Big" which is the fastest rising country song in the past 7 weeks. It is the highest debut for a country artist since 1984.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: How Big? That's What She Said
This was rumor as of yesterday as Ellen was under contract for 5 years and would have to quit if Nigel Lithgow, the producer of American Idol, who has returned to the show, was going to make changes to Idol.
So in a Tweet, Ellen said
"Dim the lights...I've voted myself off American Idol."
It followed with this released statement:
Paula Abdul just twittered and released a response about Ellen being the new American Idol Judge;
Paula Abdul "I think Ellen will b a gr8 judge on Idol. She is wildly funny, talented and I wish her the best of luck!" 7 minutes ago
Here is the statement she released to the press:
"AMERICAN IDOL is a fantastic show that offers an invaluable platform to young talent. Ellen DeGeneres is wildly funny and talented in her own right. I wish her and the show only the best of luck."
Classy move Paula. Gonna miss you and the crazy.-Dr.FB
Here is Ellen making the announcement she is the new judge on American Idol.
She seems really stoked and also announced she will be doing both her show and American Idol.
You still in shock?-Dr.FB
