Many complaints were lodged during season 9 about the overall quality of American Idol contestants. However, few disputed that Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox deserved to be the pair to square off in the finale. There seemed a near consensus in the press that Crystal Bowersox dominated the final performances, but in the end Lee DeWyze emerged victorious. For the first time the lead single from an American Idol winner is a cover version. Lee DeWyze released his interpretation of U2’s “Beautiful Day” as his first single.
