I only watched a bit of last night’s final competition, but it was enough to grasp that Crystal Bowersox pulled off a stronger performance than Lee DeWyze. I’ve just never warmed to Lee, and I think he looks nearly as uncomfortable on stage today as he did at the start of the competition. Sure, his shyness and dimples count for lots of votes, but is that enough for an “Idol” winner? I’ll be rooting for Crystal.
Anyone else planning to watch? And are there any Lee fans out there who can explain how he got this far?
The more perplexing question for producers is: Will the show even be watchable next year without Simon Cowell?
