America Loves an Underdog: Chicago’s Lee DeWyze Wins American Idol 2010!

America Loves an Underdog: Chicago’s Lee DeWyze Wins American Idol 2010!

Chicago’s Lee DeWyze, a Mt. Prospect paint store clerk who overcame his shyness to impress the American Idol judges and viewers with his spirit and soulful voice, triumphed Wednesday night over singer Crystal Bowersox in American Idol’s ninth season.

Simon Cowell, who had pointed to DeWyze as the front-runner before the finale performances, said that American Idol was created for someone like DeWyze, who was working in a paint shop when he tried out for the show and really needed a break.  DeWyze’s first recorded single will be Beautiful Day, which he had performed on Tuesday evening.
