Last week we asked our readers to choose the greatest White Guy with a Guitar (WGWG) who's won American Idol, and after more than a thousand votes, Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery came out on top.

Thanks to Scotty's active online fans, he won 58 percent of the vote, crushing David Cook, Kris Allen, and Lee DeWyze (poor Lee came away with only 2 percent). Phillip Phillips fans got out the vote on Twitter shortly after we posted the poll, and things looked even early on, but in the end Phillips came in second with about 24 percent of the vote.

Here are the final rankings
1. Scotty McCreery
2. Phillip Phillips
3. David Cook
4. Kris Allen
5. Lee DeWyze

How do you think Scotty feels about this development? Probably something like this.
