Well, maybe this is a leak. We won’t know for sure until it’s confirmed by the actual announcement of the results. The Drudge Report has leaked the name of the alleged American Idol Season 10 winner hours before the finale airs. So stop reading now if you want to be completely and totally surprised.

Who has the site named as the winner, beating out their competitor two to one after over 120 million votes?

It’s Scotty McCreery! Well, it might be. OK, it probably is. Dial Idol has also predicted that Scotty will beat out Lauren 2 to 1. Pretty much everyone thought Scotty would win, but I thought Lauren had a chance.

Are the results why we even watch the finale anymore, though? It’s two hours long and there will be Lady Gaga and Steven Tyler and Beyonce! Yes, Beyonce. But remember that one time when Ryan Seacrest accidentally tweeted a result before it had aired on the West Coast and the show had its lowest ratings ever? I wonder what will happen tonight …

Originally from Seattle, Carla recently took a husband and moved to Austin, Texas, where she is finally using her television “problem” to her advantage. It’s sort of like Dexter, but boring and less murdering. Carla’s favorite shows include 30 RockThe Amazing RaceProject RunwayModern Family, anything with murder, and pretty much anything gross and weird (CSIThe BachelorToddlers & Tiaras, etc.). Favorite canceled shows include: Arrested DevelopmentVeronica Mars and Average Joe. In her spare time, Carla leads tours of downtown Austin on a Segway (don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it!), blogs about Netflix Instant, and visits elementary schools telling children they don’t need math to succeed (just kidding, stay in school, kids).
