Well it was a tough decision for the judges on Wednesday night’sAmerican Idol. Simon Cowelltold Scott MacIntrye that the four judges were split evenly down the middle on whether or not they should use the judges’ save. When it came down to it, Simon was pressured by Ryan Seacrest to make a decision and Scott was sent home. Find out what Scott had to say about his elimination and his upcoming plans…
In an interview the morning after elimination, Scott said, “I was thrilled to know it was a split decision between the four judges. That was something very nice for me to walk away with. Even talking to Simon after the show, he told me, and I also sensed that there was some inner turmoil in him making that decision.”
Scott intends on returning home to focus on his music career, which includes going through all of the songs he has written and compiling the best ones in the event he gets approached by and agent. He says, “The music that I write for myself to perform is very much along the lines of John Mayer, Gavin DeGraw, Bruce Hornsby, Vanessa Carlton, a little bit of Mark Schultz. It is very pop rock/singer-songwriter meets adult contemporary. A lot of the music that I write is very introspective and the lyrics are very meaningful and I try to tell a story with my music. A lot if it has a harder edge and it is radio-friendly.”
Of course, Scott will be touring with the top 10 American Idolfinalists, which will be a dream come true. Scott continues, “I have been dreaming of going on tour and playing show after show every night since I was a little kid. There is something magical about being on stage with that many people in the audience. I have had glimpses through my life and, even more so on ‘Idol.’ Now it is going to be huge on tour. When I can do something I enjoy so much, which is performing, and I can touch people’s lives at the same time, it is a win-win situation for the audience and me.”
