Lee Wins American Idol — Do You Agree With the Voters?

The voters have spoken, and Lee DeWyze has been crowned winner of American Idol season nine. We were pretty split on the decision here at Sugar HQ, but I want to know what you think. Do you agree with the winner?

Who votes on AI - 8-16yr old girls for the most part. I knew the winner on the day they announced the top 12, I asked my 12 year old sister who she liked, her eyes got dreamy and she said "omg Lee!!!" End of the day that is who AI targets, those are the people who will buy the albums (I'm so sick of hearing Kris Allen wailing in my house) so, ya, Lee is the better winner for the purpose and aim of this show.

lee is BOOOORING. i'd much rather buy an album by crystal. but the non-winners have mostly gone on to do better things than the winners, so it will all work out.

Honestly, I could not complain if either won since I am a fan of both and they will each go far. Each are unique with interesting, powerful vocals. My ipod has a song from each: "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by Crystal and "Beast of Burden" by Lee. Though I must admit I favor the latter; Lee's version made me swoon a bit due to the mellow instruments and the grit/rasp in his higher notes. So I am just happy for them both and look forward to their albums.

I am disappointed. I believe that Crystal had more going for her than Lee did. The problem I had with Lee is his lack of connecting to the audience. He never showed really any emotion when he sang. Once again it goes to show you that the teenagers have been the ones making the choices and yet once again this will be one male winner that will not be able to reach the status that Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood have gotten. At least Chris Daughtery did not win and has made quite the career for himself.

No, but Crystal will go farther than Lee. It's best NOT to win American Idol.
