Meet Top 24 Contestant Scott McCreery

Does lightening strike twice in the same place? 16-year-old Scott McCreery should hope so: He attends the same North Carolina high school that Season 2 runner-up Clay Aiken did. Deep voiced and country fried, Scott showed the judges in Milwaukee that he sounds closer to Josh Turner than Justin Bieber.
