‘American Idol’ Homecoming Pictures
Fans of 'American Idol' can take a look at the final three contestants as they made their way to their hometowns in these pictures from this weekend. Each year, 'Idol' sends the top three contestants home for a promotional tour, including a parade in a convertible around town, stops at local businesses, as well as live concerts for their biggest supporters.
Scotty McCreery, 17, charmed the crowd of screaming fans (many being young female admirers) in Garner, N.C., where he was playing baseball and working at a supermarket before he auditioned for 'American Idol.' McCreery performed songs for his fans, signed autographs and was able to hang out with his parents. 16-year-old southern belle Lauren Alaina also went home to Rossville, Ga., where she belted it out in front of the crowds gathered to see her. Haley Reinhart, 20, greeted the masses in Wheeling, Ill., where she was given a key to the city and hung out with her sister.
