Team Lee DeWyze~Idol Chit Chat
If you are Team Lee, please feel free to steal the button!
I can't wait to post this anymore. I have held my squeals and cheers today long enough. Do me a favor though okay? Since some folks haven't seen The Wordless Wednesday post today, and the music is important to the whole post, scroll down to the bottom and pause the player to stop the belly dancing music before proceeding forward.
Everyone performed twice last night since it's down to the final 3. Lee's first song was Simple Man, by Lynrd Skynrd. Lynrd Skynrd is the same to a Mississippi Girl, as Frank Sinatra is to a girl from New York City. It was the contestant's choice first and this is the song Lee chose. He wasn't sure still at this point, he was confident, but still not sure. Somewhere in this room there is a drunk hippie, sceaming, "Play some Skynrd!" You know the one, you've seen him in any ole' bar if you live in the Deep South. By the way if you hang out with the Captain on Sunday with Window Shakers, I almost busted them last night during this one!
Next up was the judge's choice, and Simon Cowell got to pick Lee's song. He picked Hallelujah. At first I thought Oh No, he's screwed. No way he can pull this off. Boy was I wrong...Simon nailed it on this one. Make sure you watch the video all the way to the end. After the crowd's response to this song, he realizes that he's gonna win. He knows it, finally he sees his future forming before his eyes. Watch his father in the crowd how proud of Lee he is. They don't even have to have the finale next week. Ladies and Gentlemen, This is Your Next American Idol. I suspect we'll be jamming with Lee for a long time, me, you, your children, your grandchildren. A paint salesman from Chicago, and American Idol has changed his life! Just what the show is all about!
Amazing....watch this....if you want to stick around it shows clips of all the other performances at the end of this video, but it doesn't matter! Love Crystal, but she was over confident, and the nobody swooped in, and stole it from her.
