Scotty McCreery invites choral teacher to finale

The new America Idol winner Scotty McCreery invited Meredith Clayton, his choral teacher at Garner Magnet High School, to tonight's finale.

“We just feel really blessed and fulfilled, and it’s exciting to be a part of,” Clayton said. “We’re so proud of Scotty. It’s just an amazing time for his family.”

Clayton has another “American Idol” connection. Her mother, Diane Covington, taught season two runner-up Clay Aiken in chorus at Leesville Road High School.

“Clay was one who was talented from the moment I first saw him. I told him he had a gift going into the 10th grade,” Covington said.
