'American Idol': Lee DeWyze returns to sing 'Beautiful Like You'
DeWyze, who narrowly defeated Crystal Bowersox (what's she up to, anyway?) to take last season's title, came off calm, cool and collected -- lessons the initially shy and stiff singer learned over the course of last year's "Idol" journey. Performing with a full band and wielding his own guitar, Lee's song -- from his first major label debut -- was a hit with the audience.
Why not? It was totally in DeWyze's sweet spot -- John Mayer-reminiscent soft rock. Non-threatening, sensitive and a perfect showcase for his understated voice.
A sampling of the potentially swoon-inducing lyrics:
"If you could only just stop, stop, stop running / If you could only take a second to breathe it in / Everything that you know would be beautiful, like you."
What do you say? Was Lee's performance beautiful?
