Seventeen-year-old country crooner Scotty McCreery celebrated his recent victory as the newest “American Idol” today in a parade through Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Excited fans lined the streets, cheering on America’s newest “Idol” as he joined Mickey Mouse in a convertible sports car and greeted fans at “The American Idol Experience” attraction at the Disney theme park.
The parade is a celebration of Scotty’s crowning moment on TV’s “American Idol” on May 25 in Los Angeles. The 17-year-old country crooner from Garner N.C. was named the new “American Idol” in a star-studded finale that was viewed by an estimated 29 million people.
