I’m utterly baffled as to why Idol’s most wooden performer consistently draws rave reviews from Simon Cowell & co. — he bores me to tears!
Can somebody PLEASE tell Simon Cowell, Kara DioGuardi, Ellen DeGeneres and Randy Jackson that Lee DeWyze isn’t all that and a bag of chips? I’m sick and tired of the American Idol judges gushing all over his junk as if he’s about to become the next Chris Daughtry. News flash: he’s awful!
Seriously, can the guy show SOME feeling on stage? Even when he’s being heralded as ‘the best performance of the night’ by Kara (he went second, by the way — not too hard to be ‘best’ when one person has gone before you!) all he could do was grin like a dope. Come on dude, EMOTE!
His performance of Simon & Garfunkle’s “The Boxer” during Inspirational Week was anything but. I didn’t feel a thing, besides pissed off that I couldn’t get that three minutes of my life back.
To be fair to Lee “The Snooze” DeWyze, 24, it wasn’t as if many of the other contestants fared much better last night. Casey James’ rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop” was a step up from karaoke, Aaron Kelly believed he could fly (he sang R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly”, obviously) but I believed he sucked, and even my precious Tim Urban failed miserably with his version of the Goo Goo Dolls’ “Better Days” (I voted for him anyway — he entertains me).
Who saved me from kicking my TV in disgust? The answer is obvious: Crystal Bowersox. “Mama Sox” sang Curtis Mayfield’s “People Get Ready” so beautifully that I got chills. And talk about inspirational — Crystal, 24, was SO inspired that she even started crying during her performance! Thank God she didn’t quit!
Lee, I suggest you take some lessons from “Mama Sox” because THIS, my friend, is how it should be done!
