While everyone has been assuming a female will come out on top of American Idol this season, the ladies left the door open for the men last night, didn't they?
It's very early, but no woman stood out on the first live performance show of the year.
Two singers very happy about this development? Jermaine Sellers and Lee DeWyze. The crooners will take the stage this evening, along with 10 other men, and aim to impress all four judges and all 30 million people watching from home.
Sellers is a professional church singer and takes care of his ailing mother. She's been diagnosed with Spina Bifida.
DeWyze, meanwhile, wasn't seen very often during the initial Hollywood rounds. He hails from Mount Prospect, Illinois.
