Casey James hanging onto his life on “American Idol”

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Might as well say this up front: When Lee DeWyze was performing Hallelujah on last night’s American Idol, I got choked up. It’s such a beautiful song and he just sang it so wonderfully.

He not only assured himself a place in next week’s finals, I think he is now heavily favored to win.

Lee needed to be that good because Crystal Bowersox had just finished a sensational performance of Paul McCartney’s Maybe I’m Amazed that really was one of her best yet and she looked so great in black boots and a sexy outfit.

It will be a joy to watch these two fine singers and future recording stars face-off next week. The audience will be the winners no matter who wins.

Both of those numbers were their second of the night and their first efforts were also outstanding with Lee opening with Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Simple Man and Crystal singing the Melissa Etheridge hit Come to My Window.
