It was almost a year ago that Lee DeWyze was crowned the Season 9 winner of American Idol, and what has the former paint salesman done in his first year of pop stardom?

Oh, American Idol–you wicked, wicked beast. We’re literally still reeling and crying into our Corn Flakes over the scandalous, far-too-soon exit of our Season 10 Idol Power List fave Pia Toscano from the show.

‘American Idol’ To Release A Greatest “Hits” Collection

Becky Bain | February 3, 2011 - 2:26 pm

American Idol is celebrating a decade on the air by releasing a greatest hits compilation called American Idol 10th Anniversary — The Hits. The biggest problem (besides there being nary one Jennifer Hudson song) is that the term “hits” is about as appropriate a word to use as “stars” is on Dancing With The Stars. More »

Becky Bain | December 21, 2010 - 5:19 pm

Welcome Home, a documentary following the winners of American Idol, popped up over the weekend without much fanfare — and even stranger, the Fox-approved doc isn’t drowning in cheesiness (or Coca-Cola and Ford product placement). The half-hour special features interviews with all nine Idol winners, from Kelly Clarkson to Lee DeWyze, as well as their… More »

“Sweet Serendipity” Is Watching Over Lee DeWyze In His New Video

Robbie Daw | November 16, 2010 - 11:47 am

Strange that Lee DeWyze is seen driving around in the opening of his “Sweet Serendipity” video, since the first line of the song is “I ain’t got no car and I’ve got one pair of jeans…” At any rate, the clip is a cutesy Will boy meet girl? affair that finds Lee and a sweet… More »

Listen To Lee DeWyze’s Album Title Track “Live It Up”

Becky Bain | November 8, 2010 - 12:31 pm

We thought Lee DeWyze’s title track for his debut album, Live It Up, would be his first official single, but instead we were given the Maroon 5/Kris Allen-sounding tune, “Sweet Serendipity“.

Lee DeWyze Thanks His Lucky Stars On His Debut Single “Sweet Serendipity”

Becky Bain | October 13, 2010 - 10:42 am

Ryan Seacrest premiered Lee DeWyze’s debut single, “Sweet Serendipity”, on his radio show this morning, and the easy-breezy track, about “running into good luck by accident”, could easily be a Maroon 5 song.
