The American Idol will be announced this week and it has come down to a country battle featuring Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina. Although it is great winning the title, but then you have to worry about the "Idol" curse that kind of hangs along with it. I mean, just how many Idol winners have gone on to rule the charts. I watch every year and I can not tell you the names of the past three winners. All that said, these two contestants seem to have a head start to stardom with brand new songs already recorded and ready to be released on Thursday.
