  1. Didn't Ryan say that 2% separated them before the last vote? I didn't hear him mention how many people voted Tuesday night either.

  6. Lee definitely deserved it! Crystal is good, but Lee is just much better and I love the fact that he is shy and humble. And the fact that he's cute... but Lee is amazing either way.

Hope you thrive and thrive and bask in the amazing joy of this wonderful moment. You deserve it! Feel the love! Congrats to the parents of such an incredible guy as well.

  18. Hello 7:40 am respectfully,

    Both are winners in their own way and own music. Crystal pulled it off well in the finale but America judged the whole season not just one show to determine the Idol of the winners.

    There are a lot of fans who love Crystal and her type of music, and i beleeved Lee's Fans also beLEEved she would do well, perhaps another Janis Joplin or Carrie.

    You need to support her by buying her CDs when they are out. By crying over something that has been decided by America would not help her in her career.
    She is also Simon's pick & favourite and Simon is always right!Crystal has potential to be successful in her future in music entertainment.

    We just happened to like Lee's type of music more but that did not mean we do not like Crystal's. Be cool.

    Wish you love,
    from LeeDewyze Fan

  20. Congrats, I didn't vote for you 'cause I live far away from US, but I pray for you. I'm sure you're gonna be a star because you have different style with any other contestant. The way you sing, your smile and your honest, make you easy to be loved.

  21. i just watched the end of american idol....i was a lee fan all the way through and ashamed to say that I didn't vote for him until the finale.....im SOOO grateful lee won...but let me say that crystal was such a gracious runner up...I have no desire to call her a gracious loser as I love her as well....but lee sings more my type of music....They are both so humble and deserving...but America did make the right choice....Crystal won't walk away from this with nothing....she too will get a record deal I'm sure because of her talent...thank you Crystal for being such a HUMBLE, GRACIOUS, runner-up

  22. To respond to what Melissa said: "Didn't Ryan say that 2% separated them before the last vote?"

    That's exactly correct - there was 2% difference up until final show-down. My guess is that there was a much larger difference on the final vote. My other guess is that Crystal scored more at the start with Lee picking up in the later rounds.

    According to an article in Ad Age: "Crystal Bowersox was name-checked in 1,307 Twitter posts in one peak hour Tuesday night (the night of her final performance), with just "Crystal" scoring 3,616 tweets. Her opponent Lee DeWyze had a one-hour peak that same night of 2,249 tweets, with just "Lee" scoring 9,730 tweets. If you were monitoring Twitter, you could pretty much see DeWyze's victory last night coming."

  23. Congrats to Lee on the Idol win! I'm so glad that this year I was happy with either of the two finalists wining. I voted for Crystal Tuesday night, but I love Lee nearly as much as her and I'm very, very happy for him. What a wonderful gift for a wonderful man who has grown so much and learned to believe in himself.

    For all the sore losers out there, get over yourself. Crystal made it clear that she's happy for Lee, her fans need to follow in her footsteps. And for all the poor winners, your contestant won, is it really necessary to continue to attack and try to demean Crystal and her fans? I think Crystal and Lee would both be very disappointed and sad if they knew how some of their followers were acting.
