Lee Dewyze is new American Idol

By By Raymond Ronamai

It was a very close contest but Lee Dewyze walked away with the American Idol title at the end of the day, beating fellow contestant Crystal Bowersox. Lee, a paint salesman, became the American Idol Finale 2010 Winner with 51% votes.

Both Lee and Crystal were consistent throughout the ninth season of the American Idol. However, it was Lee who won the coveted title and a recording contract which will launch his version of U2's Beautiful Day. He overcame initial shyness and won the hearts of the judges and the audience with his beautiful singing.

The American Idol Finale 2010 also saw the exit of judge Simon Cowell, who has been the backbone of the talent show for nine years. A highlight of his career was shown at the function. American Idol Winners of all seasons Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Carrie Underwood, Fantasia Barrino, Taylor Hicks, Kris Allen and Jordin Sparks, except David Cook, performed the song “We Are One" as a tribute to Simon.

The 9th session of the music talent show ended with a sad note because of the exit of Simon Cowell.
