Lee DeWyze Wins “American Idol” — Is It A Beautiful Day For Him?

As I predicted, Lee DeWyze snagged the “American Idol” title last night. Go me … I mean … go Lee! But I’ll get back to Lee in a minute since there were two hours’ worth of star-studded performances before we heard his good news. Keep reading »

Simon Cowell’s Final “American Idol” Finale: 10 People We’d Like To See Replace Him

In case it slipped your mind because you were too busy obsessing over “Lost,” tonight is the highly anticipated “American Idol” finale. I’m sticking with my prediction that Lee DeWyze will take the title. But really, the question on everyone’s mind is: who is going to take over the title of most obnoxious judge? Even though we’ve been loving to hate Simon Cowell for the last nine seasons, watching him leave is kind of … well … depressing. How can “Idol” possibly be the same without flat top-rocking, v-neck t-wearing, honest-to-a-fault Simon? When Paula left, she took the crazy with her, which we miss for entertainment value, but it didn’t ruin the show. (A little birdie told me Paula will be making a guest appearance on tonight’s episode. I wonder what she’ll wear?) But when Simon leaves, will he take all of the show’s credibility with him? I guess that depends on his replacement. The rumor is that Howard Stern is the frontrunner for the job. Please let that not be true. The only thing Howard Stern is qualified to judge is a wet t-shirt contest. After the jump, our 10 picks for who should attempt to replace Mr. Cowell. Keep reading »

Lee DeWyze: Why I Think He’ll Be The Next “American Idol”

I’m actually really excited about the “American Idol” finale this year. Both Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox, the final two, are headed for big music fame as far as I’m concerned. All along I’ve been rooting for Mamasox, but on Tuesday night Lee changed my mind. After the jump, why I think he’s going to take the title. Keep reading »

Lee DeWyze Has An Hallelujah Moment On “American Idol”


Not to get all geeky on you guys, but did y’all catch “American Idol” last night? The competition’s down to three people, two of whom have a real shot at long-lasting careers post-”Idol.” One of those two is Lee DeWyze, the cute, sensitive rocker-type from Chicago. I didn’t really notice Lee too much at first — my favorite was always Crystal Bowersox, his main competitor — but he’s been really growing on me over the last few weeks. His rendition last night of “Hallelujah” was, to quote judge Ellen DeGeneres, “stunning.” It will definitely be one of the moments people remember this season by. Check it out above, and if you haven’t already seen it, check out his duet with Crystal last week singing the “Falling Slowly” from the movie “Once.” [via YouTube] Keep reading »

“American Idol” Contestants Stand To Make Big Bucks

Don’t spend a second of your time feeling sorry for those eliminated “American Idol” contestants. Sure, every one of them has some kind of sob story. “I’m singing for my sick grandma.” “My new baby.” “My dead friend.” But don’t let the human interest stories fool you! Yes, they sing for dear ol’ granny and the love of music, but according to an “American Idol” contract someone got their hands on, they also sing to the tune of mega bucks. All of the top 12 contestants are poised to receive a big-time pay day. [PopEater]

Heck, if I were making this much, Simon could call me an untalented bitch and I’d still smile and wave. I hope you’re sitting down. After the jump, the breakdown of “American Idol” payouts. Keep reading »
