Lee DeWyze Speaks Candidly About Life After 'Idol'
The Season 9 winner opens up about his "upsetting" album release day, telling THR's Idol Worship: "There were so many things going against it."
Lee Dewyze has achieved an extraordinary feat: he won American Idol during one of its toughest seasons ever -- not just in terms of the competition, which was formidable, as always, but because he also had to battle apathetic judges, viewer fatigue and slipping ratings. Somehow, Lee not only survived season 9, he thrived, transforming from a reserved former paint salesman to a star on America’s biggest stage.
