The American Idol Season 9 Top 2 finalists performed three songs each – the first was their favorite of the season, another song was chosen by Idol’s creator Simon Fuller and the last was the winner’s song – to vie for America’s vote during the final live performances show on Tuesday (May 25).
Lee Dewyze was forced to perform R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, which was chosen by Simon Fuller, and he delivered an amazing performance (watch video below). I loved it. There was no wow moment and the vocals were not perfect. Kara DioGuardi loves Lee for the simple reason he is the type of singer that is emotionally accessible. Simon Cowell praised Fuller’s song choice but expected more from Lee. Simon says he wants a “10 out of 10” in the next round.
