Lee DeWyze Wins American Idol 2010 in an Upset

After an entire season of competition, it came down to 2 final contestants battling to become the 2010 American Idol. Both reside in the midwest.  Lee DeWyze from near Chicago and Crystal Bowersox from just outside Toledo. Crystal was the odds on favorite from day one. Lee grew week by week through the entire season. Lee was only “good” on the final night of competition, while Crystal was spectacular most every week and hit a high note on the finals night.

This year’s top 12 contestants teemed up for many solo, duet, and group songs. They were also joined on stage by past and present pop music superstars including Orianthi, Alice Cooper, Chris Allen, The BeeGees, Michael MacDonald, Christina Aguilera, Hall & Oates, Alanis Morrissette, Carrie Underwood, Brett Michaels, Chicago, General Larry Black, William Hung, Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Berino, Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Hicks, Janet Jackson, Joe Cocker, and numerous previous season runners-up.

Comedy breaks were used to roast Simon Cowell on his final night on American Idol. Dane Cook performed a “Simon’s Insults Song” and was cut short when a previous year’s disaster went on a rant and refused to relinquish the microphone.  Ricky Gervase added insults and Paula Abdul made an appearance.

It was announced that Lee DeWyze is the 2010 American Idol winner. He finished off the night by singing his soon to be released single “Beautiful Day”.
