Lee DeWyze Fails To Live It Up, Scores Lowest First Week Sales In ‘Idol’ History

In sad but not-entirely-surprising news, Lee DeWyze’s album Live It Up debuted at #19 on the Billboard 200, moving only 39,000 units. If you’re paying attention, that’s the lowest first week sales ever from an Idol winner — or runner-up, for that matter. (For comparison’s sake, last year’s champ, Kris Allen, sold 80,000 his first week, and even that was considered a disappointing figure.) Hope Lee’s old job at the paint store is still available.
