Lauren Alaina's Style Transformation: From Girl Next Door to 'Idol' Contender

One of our favorite reasons to watch "American Idol" is seeing what contestant Lauren Alaina will wear week after week.

Aside from her extraordinary voice, she's like any other typical 16-year-old. She likes to experiment with her clothing and hair (though we secretly hope she ditches the two-tone look). She is emotional, sometimes going toe-to-toe with the judges and other times succumbing to her nerves. She's real-sized, not some hanger in a mini-dress and heels like many other Hollywood stars.

Check out her looks from throughout the season:


We didn't love her short skirt and cowboy boot combos, which tend to make her look boxy. We much prefer her long-legged black leggings look, as well as the gorgeous princess gowns from the last few shows.

As for her rival, Scotty McCreery, Let's just say he plays to the conservative crowd and dresses the part. He must have the largest collection of denim jackets and flannel shirts in "Idol" history. His most tragic look? The Canadian tuxedo (denim shirt and jeans) he wore in the middle of the season.

Check out his all his looks below:

I didn't watch all season. The results seemed to be rigged years ago. Remember Dave Archeuleta losing to ? (someone who was quickly forgettable) and Adam Lambert (To someone also forgettable) then on and on it goes. I am sure there is a way to super or power text msg or whatever you do to vote nowadays. So why bother? It has ZERO to do with the most talented people anymore. Just the most hyped by the judges and then the super nerds power voting in the end.

Canadian Funny, never heard that one before.
Guess you never visited the red neck parts of your country. Do you think you could write an article without taking a kick at someones nationality - not really sure how the slur applied.

American Idol was packed so full of talent that almost all of the top ten had a chance to win. It was the best season ever as far as my wife and I are concerned, also it is our favorite show. We loved the judges also. I thought I would miss Simon but really did not. GREAT SHOW

I have watched Idol every season since it started and this was the most talent packed season ever.

I think it is always going to be a controversial show because people like different types of music and we all have our favorites. I really enjoyed the new judges and sure hope they both come back next season.

Anyone who thinks Idol wasn't a success this year needs a reality check.
