Scotty McCreery has had a crazy year so far between missing a White House visit and getting robbed at gunpoint. Hopefully nothing will prevent him from returning to the place that made him famous, The "American Idol" stage. Scotty will be making an appearance on Thursday, May 15th.

Scotty expressed his excitement on his Twitter page.

Idol has been renewed for another season, no word yet on if any of the judges or even Ryan Seacrest will return, but there will be at least one more year of the popular singing competiton.
