Scotty McCreery is a God-fearing teen from the bible belt; Lady Gaga sings about taking rides on Disco sticks.
So you knew something had to give when the outrageous pop star mentored the clean-cut Garner, North Carolina native on Wednesday’s American Idol – and boy, was it ever entertaining!
It was clear that McCreery, 17, was uncomfortable with the erotic advice the LoveGame singer gave him — like when she said to pretend his microphone was a woman.
“Keep your mouth on that microphone like your life depends on it or that b***h gonna leave you,” the pop star told McCreery, who looked like a deer in the headlights (which she picked up on).
“Apparently, he’s a bit more conservative than I had imagined,” Gaga said.
Said the show’s Jimmy Iovine: “Scotty McCreery. Lady Gaga. I couldn’t think of a better fit.”
McCreery let his poker face down in a separate interview, expressing his uneasiness in taking the the hitmaker’s sexually-charged advice.
“Lord, this is not my doing,” McCreery said, before kissing his cross.
American Idol returns Thursday on Fox at 8/7c. This season’s champ will be announced on the show’s May 26 finale.
