The 10th season of AMERICAN IDOL came to a sensational conclusion tonight as Scotty McCreery was crowned the winner during the live two-hour season finale on FOX.

McCreery capped his coronation on Wednesday's finale by singing "I Love You This Big," which is available for download exclusively on americanidol.com and iTunes.

On Tuesday night's final performance show, Alaina and McCreery each sang three songs. Alaina performed "Flat on the Floor," "Maybe It Was Memphis" and "Like My Mother Does"; and McCreery sang "Gone," "Check Yes or No" and "I Love You This Big."

McCreery is the 10th finalist to win the coveted AMERICAN IDOL title and a record contract with 19 Recordings. He joins past winners Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks, David Cook, Kris Allen and Lee DeWyze.
