Lee Dewyze’s “Slumberland” reaches #17 on Billboard Top Heatseekers Chart

Lee Dewyze’s “Slumberland” reaches #17 on Billboard Top Heatseekers Chart

American Idol continues to impact Billboard charts.

*Make Lee's "Slumberland" #1!!! Click HERE for the CD or box below for the MP3. LET'S IMPACT THOSE BILLBOARD CHARTS!!!*

The "American Idol Season 9" soundtrack marks the ninth compilation from the series to reach the Billboard 200. Such collections were released each year from 2002 through 2006, followed by a two-year break before returning last year:

The new soundtrack isn't the only album debuting this week featuring one of the current "American Idol" top two finalists.

Lee DeWyze bows on Heatseekers Albums at No. 32 with "Slumberland." His second album, released on the independent WuLi Records label, features the singer/songwriter's now-familiar acoustic-rock stylings. In addition to this great chart position, "So I’m Told" (2007) is at #24 on the iTunes Top 100 Pop USA Album Chart!

The notable records, "Slumberland" and "So I’m Told", feature producer Ryan McGuire and guitarist extraordinaire, Louis Svitek, well known for his work with Ministry, M.O.D. and Mind Funk. The collaboration is an evocative, haunting mix of multi-instrumental, multi-faceted songs whose artistry draws comparison to Jack Johnson and Chris Martin of Coldplay.

Billboard chart manager Alex Vitoulis notes that DeWyze is the first "American Idol" contestant to reach a Billboard chart as a solo artist while competing on the show. (2008 hopeful Carly Smithson had spent a week on Hot Singles Sales, billed by her maiden name Carly Hennessy, in 2003. She now fronts the alternative/metal band We Are the Fallen, which, coincidentally, enters the Billboard 200 this week at No. 33 with its debut album, "Tear the World Down").

Lee says he has learned so much from the "Idol" journey. "Throughout the season, there have been ups and downs for everybody, but for me it was actually really good when there were down moments," Lee explained. "It really helped me figure out myself a little bit more because I was able to figure out how to get over those kind of things and really let the fears go…" Lee also performed "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen.

Meanwhile, Crystal talks about the break up with her boyfriend on the morning of the finale performance show. "We were having breakfast and he just decided he's a small-town guy and I don't blame him for anything. He's been amazing. He's been my rock through all of this. It's alright," Crystal said. Crystal also performed "Up To The Mountain" by Patty Griffin.

American 'Idol's Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox Sign Record Deals

It hasn't even been 24 hours since Lee DeWyze was crowned this year's "American Idol," but already he and his runner-up, Crystal Bowersox, have signed their record deals.

DeWyze is signed to 19 Recordings Limited and RCA Records, while Bowersox is signed to 19 Recordings Limited and Jive Records, a source confirms exclusively to Billboard.com.

DeWyze joins Daughtry and Adam Lambert at RCA, while Bowersox can now count past "Idol" winners Jordin Sparks and Kris Allen, and 2009 finalist Allison Iraheta, as her labelmates.

If 19 and Sony Music stick to the release schedule of past years, fans can expect DeWyze and Bowersox's debut albums to be released in the fourth quarter, as "Idol" albums are typically targeted for release around the holiday season. Last year, Allen's self-titled debut and Lambert's "For Your Entertainment" were released on Nov. 17 and Nov. 23, respectively.

In the meantime, the pair's debut singles were released to iTunes and radio today. DeWyze's single, a cover of U2's "Beautiful Day," and Bowersox's version of Patty Griffin's "Up to the Mountain". It's too early to tell how many downloads "Beautiful Day" and "Up to the Mountain" may sell in their first week. However, industry sources contacted suggest looking to how the past few seasons'-worth of first and second-place finishers have fared with their debut singles in the week after the finale in order to forecast how DeWyze and Bowersox might do this week.

Lee DeWyze & Crystal Bowersox 'Play' with Ellen

Crystal Bowersox, Lee DeWyze and Ellen


On the day before the big showdown on the American Idol Season 9 Finale between the Top 2 finalists Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze, the contestants showed up on The Ellen Degeneres Show for a little fun, and to blow off a little steam and de-stress with America's funniest judge. Ellen asked Crystal and Lee how they felt going into the finale. Crystal said, "You kinda forget your nerves when you're so busy, we've been doing so much...You can't really afford to be nervous." They play "Ellen's Know or Go," a game where two huge Idol fans put their fate in Crystal's and Lee's knowledge of trivia. And when the Idol's missed a question, the poor victims fell through a trap door! Classic Ellen!

American Idol: Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox duet on 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game'

Crystal Bowersox   Lee DeWyze


The countdown has begun to the May 26 "American Idol" Season 9 finale in which Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox will find out who gets the title. Though they'll go head-to-head on Tuesday in a last attempt to attract those votes, on Saturday (May 22), the Idols put the rivalry aside to sing a special duet for baseball fans.

In the middle of preparing for the big finale, the competitors stopped by Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles for an acoustic performance of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." They arranged their own folk-rock version of the song and played it together, with their guitars in hand, as the ever-present cameras looked on.

The duo's performance could be seen during four different televised baseball games on Saturday, May 22. It aired during the Yankees/Mets game, the Red Sox/Phillies game, the Cubs/Rangers game, and of course, the Dodgers/Tigers game. "American Idol" has never done this before, but if future duets are as great as Lee's and Crystal's, we're hoping it becomes a new tradition.
