In the wake of Scotty McCreery's American Idol triumph, the country is asking multiple questions today?

Lee DeWyze returned to the stage that made him famous last night.

The season nine American Idol champion, whose album sales have been less than stellar, performed a new single ("Beautiful Like You") and offered advice to the remaining finalists: "Just remember why you tried out in the first place. You guys are fine, no matter what happens."

But it all paid off tonight, as the laid back rocker with the sexy, scratchy voice was crowned season nine champion on American Idol!
