How’s this for a dream come true? American Idol hopeful Lee will be performing with his musical doppelganger during the Idol finale!

When Lee DeWyze performed Joe Cocker’s hit, “The Letter”, on American Idol March 23, you couldn’t help but agree that their voices are pretty similar. In fact, you might just say Lee, 24, is a baby Cocker in the making! It’s a good thing, too, because as it happens, the 66-year-old British singer will be appearing on the Idol finale this week — and performing with the final two contestants Lee and Crystal Bowersox!

An insider tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the trio will be performing together on May 26 — right before a season 9 Idol winner is crowned. Although we’re uncertain of song selection at the moment, we really, REALLY hope not to hear “Up Where We Belong.”

Now if only Crystal could perform with HER musical influence, Melissa Etheridge. Sigh.

Another manipulation by the AI machine to favor DeWyze. How surprising.

Lee should sing Joe Cocker’s “When the Night Comes” – fabulous song.

“The Letter” is an ear worm – but annoying.

I love Joe Cocker….here’s hoping they do a song from “Mad Dogs and Englishmen” (for the Simon of course)
I really don’t like Lee that much….but if he sings “Girl From The North Country” I may have to vote for him.
With Joe Cocker ‘spazzing’ out on stage no one will even notice Lee standing around looking firghtened!

Bonnie Raitt for Crystal !!!!

Lee rocks. Lee is the deal. Lee is “it”. American Idol “it”. I can hardly wait. Bring on Joe Cocker – what an honor.

Okay, I’ve been kind up to this point but as much as I do like Crystal, she’s boring. She’s defined, she’s Lilith Fair and categorically Melissa Etheridge but not as good and after a year or two she’ll play the/her course out and be done. Her fav idol is Jason Castro because of his dreads? Wow, deep! LEE, though, is still growing and has so much commercial potential and character and heart, I think there is a long lasting career there. That monster voice and poet spirit will SOAR. LEEEEEEE all the way!

Lee’s only more interesting to you because he has a penis.
