‘American Idol’ Crowns New Winner; Lee DeWyze Surprises As Victor
May 27, 2010
(ChattahBox) – American Idol has crowned another winner, and another season has ended. Lee DeWyze has won over shining star Crystal Bowersox, in what many are calling a huge upset for the show.
The talent show that used to be a major feather in the cap of FOX has become increasingly lackluster in the last several seasons.
While Ellen was brought in this season to spice things up and take the place of departing smarmy bastard Simon Cowell, who will be missed for his over-the-top jackass facade, the recent years have seen a serious drop in ratings and excitement.
The ‘surprise’ win of Lee DeWyze, who failed to impress many above Crystal Bowersox with his often shaky performances, also failed to attract the kind of attention of past season shockers. (Remember when Melinda Doolittle was kicked out over beatboxer Blake Lewis in Season 6?)
They tried to make the departure of Cowell a touching moment, but it fell short on that regard. This isn’t Simon’s fault, or even the show’s. It more has to do with the endless hype we have had to suffer through between last season and this one about him cutting his ties.
In the end, we have a winner, but he may not find the kind of reception that many past participants have received. But, who knows? Maybe he will get lucky, and we will have another Jordin Sparks, Carrie Underwood, or Kelly Clarkson on our hands.
