I’m already cringing. How can Lee possibly compare to Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood or David Cook?

Singing the national anthem at the NBA Finals is a long-running American Idol tradition — and one that I’ve loved to watch. But how can this year’s winner, Lee DeWyze, top fellow #1’s Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, David Cook or even Kris Allen?

I keep expecting Lee to grow on me, but he hasn’t. His cover of U2’s “Beautiful Day” is just plain bad. And yes, I expect you Lee Lovers to attack me on that statement — go right ahead.

So when the 24-year-old Mount Prospect, Illinois native warbles the Star-Spangled Banner prior to Game 2 of the NBA Finals at the Staples Center in LA June 6, I’m sure I’ll be less than enchanted — but at least I won’t be disappointed. I already know what to expect.
