The votes are in and a new champ has been crowned!

America has voted and the new American Idol is LEE DEWYZE! Lee beat out fellow finalist Crystal Bowersox to snag the coveted honor and follow in the footsteps of past champs including Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Jordin Sparks! Even though the judges seemed to prefer Crystal last night, Lee’s versions of U2′s ‘Beautiful Day,’ R.E.M’s ‘Everybody Hurts,’ and Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘The Boxer’ still managed to win over the fans.

Lee has been a favorite this entire season, even past finalist Blake Lewis told us EXCLUSIVELY he expected a Lee victory. We do wish however that Lee would reconsider his first single – ‘Beautiful Day’ is a horrible choice!

U guys ! UGH , How can he reconsider his single if he already released it, btw lee won because hes got more sides to him, he has a folk rock side like Treat her like a lady and alos a country rock side like The Boxer, , When you vote for a contestant in the final, you look back at all their performances the whole season, not just one final, and lee can also enter hard rock, he’s got the potential :)

GOOD LUCK LEE

scarla i agree. he’s another warm body that a producer can voice over and turn into another britney spears. this gal crystal beat him hands down AND she reminds me of janice joplin. for those of you that are not old enough to remember lol… janice was an exceptional musician and she was also one of the first woman to hit the rock n roll scene in the 60′s. but anyway… in my opinion… lee will probably end up doing well for himself but can he be a front man or carrying his own band? hmmm….

No need for Lee to reconsider his “Beautiful Day” choice.
Modern technology to the rescue !!!
Picture Lee on stage with a video back drop of U2… he just has to stand there and lip sync…considering he’s probably learned most of the lyrics by now, it’s all good….
No one is going to buy it anyway.
