Friends or BF and GF? The way Lee DeWyze reacted when Siobhan Magnus got voted off Idol last night was touching — as was the way she took comfort in his arms!
I was shocked that Siobhan Magnus was sent packing from American Idol April 28 for her rendition of Shania Twain’s “Any Man of Mine” (the audience seemed to think Big Mike Lynche was going home and I personally wanted Aaron Kelly gone a long time ago) — but I wasn’t half as dismayed as the judges’ golden boy Lee DeWyze. The dude was so unhappy that he looked like he was going to cry…but what else is new?
Big Mike, Siobhan and my rocker hottie Casey James were all in the bottom three, but when Mikey boy was saved, Lee started to get nervous. The 24-year-old Mount Prospect, Illinois native paced the stage until he was forced to sit down during the final elimination. When host Ryan Seacrest declared Casey, 27, safe, Lee put his head in his hands while earth mother ‘Mama’ Crystal Bowersox rubbed his back to console him.
But wait…it gets better! While Siobhan, 20, watched her American Idol journey unfold on film, Lee kept on trying to get to his girl, but was repeatedly stopped by stagehands. When he was finally allowed to console Siobhan, the moment was priceless! She wrapped her arms around him and didn’t let go for two minutes. (Big Mike tried to get in there, too, but she paid no attention to him). She briefly hugged the other contestants, but was right back in Lee’s arms.
Let’s not forget that Lee, Siobhan and Mike all got tattoos together last weekend to commemorate their Idol experience. We know that Lee’s ink was the Chicago flag (lame), but maybe these two secret Idol lovers should have gotten hearts and flowers.
What else did you miss? Cameron Diaz was on hand to promote Shrek Forever After, and, as per usual, Big Mike, 26, wasn’t shy about grabbing Cammy girl for a hug. More surprisingly, Siobhan also wanted some loving from the bubbly blond 37-year-old actress.
Judge Kara DioGuardi and Siobhan are TIGHT. In addition to a lengthy pep talk post elimination, Kara, 39, ran up to the Marstons Mills, Mass. native AGAIN to let her know how much she was loved. Aw.
And let’s not forget Lady Gaga’s pre-taped performance. For more detz on her half-naked performance of “Alejandro”, click here!
But back to Siobhan and Lee. My personal wish is for them to become this year’s Anoop Desai and Megan Joy Corkery. Do you?
