Lee Dewyze is continuing press circuit and appearances as the result of his American Idol win. His latest stop was announced a couple of days ago as he was picked to sing the national anthem for game 2 of the 2010 NBA Finals featuring the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics. The Lakers pulled out a win in Game 1. Game 2 took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The buzz around Lee lately is how his first single did not top the charts. He performed a cover and not an original song. We all know American Idol is not the same competition that it used to be years ago when it started.
Let’s look at the last three winners. No offense to Lee Dewyze, but he is almost a carbon of the last two winners of American Idol. The female was heavily favored this season, especially after her performances in the finale, but Lee Dewyze still managed to pull out the win. Do you think a woman can win this American Idol?
Check out his performance of the national anthem earlier tonight at the 2010 NBA Finals. What do you think? For more of my American Idol coverage, go here. For the latest in television news from me, go here.
