Like it was any big surprise. As one commenter on the New York Times “American Idol” blog wrote this morning of Lee DeWyze’s triumph over Crystal Bowersox:
Clear evidence that the world must not be run by 12 year old girls. What a travesty that the blank-eyed lump with a familiar raspy shout should win over a mesmerizing gorgeous vocalist- half Streep half Bonnie Raitt…with a little wild thing marbled thru her.
Speaking of the Times, its “AI” wrap-up is hilarious. Unanswered questions include:
