Man to Beat: Scotty McCreery

Man to Beat: Scotty McCreery
"Idol's" best-ever male country singer began this season looking like a one-trick pony. But that trick has proven to be a pretty good one, and his rich baritone has become the defining sound of "Idol" this season — if you don't count the audio drop-outs when producers have to censor Steven Tyler. McCreery infuses his performances with a confident swagger that calls on hip-hop attitude, making him a unique performer in the "Idol" canon, well past the hick shtick of past "Idol" country dudes (see: Bucky Covington). And with each passing week, he's looking more and more invincible, and like he's ready to win it all.
Odds of winning: 2-to-1
