    If he had sung something this creative on Idol I would have voted for him.
    Thank you for posting the link .

    That was excellent! I hope he will record an acoustic version of this song, I would buy it in a hearbeat .

I don't know their voting practices, and it may be a dozen people posting thousands of times! (very likely). but I do think that Lee has a large younger fanbase. And probably a decent sized "older" one too!

    I am a fan of Lee and Crystal but hoped that Lee wins (though I cannot vote since I am not in the US). But I would have been happy if Crystal had won. They are both winners in my books and will buy their albums.

    Now that's what I'm talking about! Thanks so much for posting that TCDC. As to the why of the studio version, perhaps he doesn't control that. Also, all that background junk detracts and just swallows him, and that's the fault of those who do what I think is called mixing?

    Looking at that video, call me crazy, but there is something about his looks that reminds me of ... gasp ... Elvis?

    That was excellent! Loved the piano, too. Much better than all the hooplah onstage with AI. I wish him the best.

    Very, very nice! I'm keeping my fingers crossed this is the version he can do!

    I saw someone who looked like Lee the other day at starbucks! He had red hair though. Has anyone noticed that Lee's style is straight from the 90s? I haven't noticed that before now. I'm not much into men's fashion.

    Lee grew on me more and more as the season went along but the performance that clinched it for me was "That's Life". I downloaded that one and I watch it on youtube quite a bit.

    I was a lot more of a Crystal person, but I agree that "That's Life" was indeed excellent.

    I'm going to plead ignorance here, but can someone tell me why Lee covered "Beautiful Day" as opposed to the usual gag-worthy, specifically written idol winner theme song?

    It was the producer's decision not to do an Original Winner's Song this year. They get ridiculed for it every year. Last year was probably the last straw. No Boundaries was such a stinker that not even Adam Lambert could make it sound good. Kris Allen dropped it from his set on tour after three performances - it was such a show stopper (and not in a good way).

    So - they just had the contestants pick from a list of cleared "inspirational" songs.
