Lee Dewyze Performs ‘Beautiful Day’, ‘Everybody Hurts’ & ‘The Boxer’ on Idol Finale

Lee Dewyze performed his last three songs during the performance night of American Idol Season 9 Finale.

First Song: “The Boxer”

Randy Jackson said “A great way to start off this night. This will come down to a duel to the finish. You sounded nice but pick it up.” Ellen deGeneres said “I couldn’t be prouder if I birthed you myself.” Kara DioGuardi said “You got to punch harder. It was believable. You were connected to it.” Simon Cowell said “This is the big one. I would expect a lot more passion and excitement. That was a kiss on the cheek when I want a kiss on the lips.”

Second song: “Everybody Hurts”

Randy Jackson said “That was better. It started off pitchy but you pulled it together. It was a lot better.” Ellen DeGeneres said “I felt like you went off a few times but it is about the performance. You got into a couple of times but then you pulled back.” Kara DioGuardi said “Your emotionally accessible. It wasn’t a perfect vocal.” Simon Cowell said “Brilliant choice of song. You went off melody in parts. I want a 10/10 for your last performance.”

Third song: “Beautiful Day”

Randy Jackson said “Started off interesting but by the middle of the song you got your groove back.” Ellen DeGeneres said “You were fully present for that song. I am so proud of you. You did a great job.” Kara DioGuardi said “You got swallowed up in that song. You had some good moments and some not so good moments but you deserve to be here tonight.” Simon Cowell said “You made the most of it. You made a lot more effort. This is what this competition was designed for. You have worked hard and I wish the best to you.”
