It’s DeWyze vs. Bowersox for the “American Idol” title

Hollywoodnews.com: And then there were two.

Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox will go head to head in the season nine finale of “American Idol” next Tuesday as Casey James met his end.

During the season, James vied to show that his bluesy bar-band style trumped his good looks — a physique which caught the eye of judge Kara DioGuardi (she asked him to take off his shirt at one point during the audition).

MTV’s excellent analysis of the show points out that James’ flame burnt out based on song choice, as he decided to croon the unknown tune “OK, It’s Alright With Me” by Eric Hutchinson. Singing the judges’ choice, John Mayer’s “Daughters,” didn’t earn him any more traction.

Similar to previous years’ finalists, i.e. 2009’s Kris Allen/ Adam Lambert showdown and 2008’s David Cook/ David Archuleta face-off, the two early favorites, whom never hit the bottom three, continued on to “Idol” success.

Lambert has given his vote of confidence to earthy single mom Bowersox.
