Lee DeWyze Gives a Performance: 'American Idol'

The season nine winner of 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM on FOX) has struggled in the sales charts thus far with his debut post-'Idol' album 'Live It Up.' In fact, it premiered with the lowest sales of any prior winner.

After watching Lee DeWyze's performance of "Beautiful Like You" on the stage that made him famous(?), we think he deserves more.

Sure, DeWyze is the third guitar-playing, crooning pretty boy in a row to win the crown, but he showcased a seasoned vocal on this performance that is more than worthy of success. Perhaps he'll experience the 'Idol' bump that most artists get after performing on the show.

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on FOX.

Certainly the show would like to get back to the days when their winners went on to become successful in the music industry. It's been awhile, but it's not been a reflection of the quality of the singers they've been finding. So what is the problem? Can DeWyze turn the tide, or will they have to pin their hopes on this year's winner?
