After what seemed like a never-ending lackluster season of American Idol, Lee Dewyze emerged the winner of Idol 2010. But did the right person win?
Crystal Bowersox seemed to turn in solid performances week after week, and while paint salesman Lee Dewyze was no slouch, it seems that his backstory may have won over more fans than Ms. Bowersox.
Lee Dewyze's everyman story of a good-hearted musician just trying to break on the scene made Lee the dark horse of the season. Lee was crowned the winner of American Idol after a star-filled, if not odd, Idol finale.
When asked how he felt, Lee told host Ryan Seacrest, "I don't know! It's amazing. Thank you guys so much. For everything. Thank you. Thank you."
