Sorry Lee, but Diana says it’s time for another lady Idol!

It’s almost here! Tues., May 25, marks the beginning of the two day season 9 finale of American Idol and it’s going to be a battle of talent between Ohio’s Crystal Bowersox, 24, and Illinois boy Lee DeWyze. So who does season three runner-up Diana DeGarmo want to win? “I would like to see Crystal win because I would like to see a female take it home,” Diana, who currently stars Hair on Broadway, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively May 24 at the Hair/Bumble and Bumble Cut-in in NYC. “I think they’re both great [but,] we’ve had two guitar playing guys win the last two years. It’s time for a lady to take it!”

Diana also dished on how Crystal and Lee can prepare for their final fight. “My advice for the final two is to just take it every second at a time because it’s a whirlwind,” she said. “There’s a lot going on. Those final two performances are crazy. So, (a) slow down and enjoy the moments and (b) have a good time. Just have a good time because it’s going to go by so quickly!”
