Due to technical difficulties the full American Idol Finale Idol Be The Judge Blog will be posted at a later time. The blog will include not only opinion on the winner and runner up but Simon Cowell's last night on the show as well as other performances during the Finale.
But for those needing to know right away. The American Idol is....Lee Dewyze. Despite an off night and Crystal's reemergence after a few difficult weeks, Lee still came out on top.
We have known for several years now that it is only teen girls calling and voting in large numbers, and despite Crystal blowing Lee out of the water last night, he was able to carry all the good vibes of last week and a whole lot of momentum and win it all.
As I said the Full Idol Be The Judge Blog will be posted at a later time, but congratulations to both Crystal Bowersox for being a consummate pro, and to Lee DeWyze for winning. Where he will rank in American Idol winners is anyone's guess, but for tonight, he is on top of the world.
