Who Won American Idol

Before watching last nights American Idol Final Performances, I thought that Lee DeWyze was really coming out of his shell and might pull off the upset. But then I changed my mind.

So you want to know who really won?

Crystal Bowersox belted out every song to perfection. She gave it everything she had & it paid off. She sang, "Me & Bobby McGee", and then, "Black Velvet."

If I have one criticism, it isn't directed at Crystal, but her stylists. Please stop trying to glamorize her (i.e. Black Velvet dress). It was just wrong. Leave her alone & let her dress in "earth mama" clothes. It is her!

The last song, Crystal came out and gave the performance of a lifetime. When she sang her final song (which will be her single if she wins), Up to the Mountain, I was moved to tears. It wasn't just her voice, which is absolutely incredible...that song, the words, the emotion she put into it...that song!

Is that absolutely the most amazing vocal?

I felt that Lee did have a tough time. He sang, "The Boxer", "Everybody Hurts" and then a song originally done by U2, "Beautiful Day". He never should have had to sing a U2 song. But he just didn't bring it on the other songs either.

He was a bundle of nerves, which I guess is part of his appeal.

When the final votes came in..............................................................................................................


Your next American Idol is.......................................................................................




Crystal Bowersox?...................................................................................................




NO...............................................................IT'S LEE DeWYZE.

If the voters based it on last nights performance, I think they got it wrong. What do you think?

Ya know...I absolutely love them both!!! But, I have to say....from the beginning, I thought Crystal was gonna win the whole thing. My husband said that he thinks Lee will pull it off but I don't know, something in my gut has just been telling me it will be Crystal.

I think they both have won, though. You know they're both gonna get a contract, they're so good!!

Can't wait to watch tonight!!

I know Kimmy. You can't go wrong being the final two or 10 for that matter.

I'm excited to see tonight's show...will be totally shocked if Lee pulls it off!

Lee DeWyze, won the title. He was an underdog contestant but at the end he Rocked . Though this season is not so popular in people but i enjoyed it. Watch DISH TV for more news about American idol.

Crystal Bowersox was my favorite . But i know, boys are always favorite than girls. I enjoyed the final in DISH NETWORK
and became little upset .

I felt the same way. If voters based their decision on Tuesday night, Crystal should have won. Lee has changed so much and I admire his growth. Crystal was always right on.
I do think Lee is more marketable. We all appreciate Crystal's talent more but for some reason America is so predictable when it comes to styles of music and Lee is the style right now.
I think Crystal will do just fine with her own career though.
I told my kids I was fine with whoever won...they were both good. But after I heard Crystal on tuesday, I thought for sure she'd win.
