Something told us that Lee was going to win! He is NOT the better singer, yet that is how the show has played out, over the years. As I understand it, the arrangement works out better for the runner-up!
After the end of yet another amazing season, American Idol has announced it’s Spring 2010 champion! The contest came to a showdown between finalists Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze. An enthusiastic and exciting season of songs has occurred, and Lee Dewyze has emerged as the winner!
I suppose that is good. Lee is a decent singer. I must contest that he can not sing better than Crystal. In fact, there may have been a couple of others from earlier in the season whom should have – could have been better performers. Yet, it is all about who gets the most votes. Apparently, Lee amassed more than Crystal. Well, good luck, Lee!
This evening’s show was spectacular! It was quite star-studded! Singers were showing up like roaches crawling out of wall cracks! I mean, some of everybody was there!
The concert began with Idol alumnus and past-winner Kris Allen singing! He lead into a humorous tribute to exiting judge and show-leader, Simon Cowell. This was followed by singing by contestants Aaron Kelly and Siobhan Magnus. Michael Lynche sang Takin’ It to the Streets with soul-singing star Michael McDonald (a hit from McDonald’s days with The Doobie Brothers). Dane Cook sang a humorous effort to some of Simon Cowell’s insults!
Even more singers highlighted the stage! Hall and Oates sang! Crystal Bowersox got to sing a duet with Alanis Morissette, then Alanis sang her hit, You Oughta Know! Carrie Underwood sang, followed by Casey James!
Finalist Lee Dewyze got to sing with long-standing singers Chicago! There was a (sort-of) comedic moment, with William Hung and dancers performing to the curiously comical tune “Pants On the Ground”! Paula Abdul sang as well, and she did a tribute to Simon!
Past American Idol contestants return to grace the stage. Many of the singers from over the show’s past years were there. Fantasia Barrino, Ruben Studdard, and Carrie Underwood had their faces shown to highlight all of the Idol alumni!
A fully-sumptuous Janet Jackson was presented at the end of the show! She had a sleek and slickly-gelled hairdo, beginning her medley with Nothing. Miss Jackson continued into a dance medley of several of her hits, along with dancers from her performance troupe!
As the show’s end approached, Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze returned to the stage. They sang together, and Joe Cocker was introduced. Ryan Seacrest returned, and the winner was announced. It was Lee Dewyze whom emerged as this season’s champion!
I have to reiterate that Lee IS NOT a better singer than Crystal. Yet, it is about votes, and possibly other contract agreements about which we know nothing. Lee is supposed to be bound by American Idol for one full year before he can branch out on his own, whereas Crystal can get started into her own musical career, immediately! Well, best of luck to both of them!
