Lee DeWyze is an American Idol champion!

He auditioned for season nine in  Chicago and sung “Beautiful People” by Marilyn Mason. He hails from Mount Prospect, Illinois.

DeWyze specializes is strumming an acoustic guitar while singing. He's put out an album titled "Slumberland" and once said:

"I want a connection with my audience in the sense that any song I do reminds them of a specific moment in their lives - not mine. I want listeners to say 'Wow, he was there when that happened to me.'"

Way to go, Lee!
