- Even if you’re not an “American Idol” fan, you’ve probably heard of SCOTTY MCCREERY. He’s the 16-year-old. . . and current Top 3 Finalist . . . that sounds a lot like JOSH TURNER.
–Well, the two finally met. Josh surprised Scotty while he was performing on Saturday in Garner, North Carolina. And Scotty was visibly stunned. Josh entered the stage and said quote, “All these people are here for you.
–“I had heard you never sang this song with a band before and were a little bit nervous, so I decided I would bring a few of my guys in.” Then they performed Josh’s song “Your Man”, which Scotty has done on “Idol”.
