it was horrible..bad kereoke...real bad. Simon likes u2, the guy who won the idol competition for all the idols sung beautiful day back in 200?. Its a no brainer for Lee. Sing Beautiful Day and you'll probably win. But to sing it like that? and to release it?
aarrgghh sort of sums up the show. Absolutely no song writing ability required.

I thought this article nailed the way I was feeling:

My fav paragraph and line:

Dewyze sang U2ís ďBeautiful Day,Ē which posed several problems. One: Dewyze is no Bono. Two: The song isnít so old that people donít think of the U2 version the minute they hear it. There isnít a contestant yet who could out sing Bono, and Dewyze didnít end that streak and could not put his own stamp on the song. Each judge gave Dewyze what amounted to a eulogy: We love you, youíre what the season is all about, good luck in the future and donít forget to write.

Its a kiss of death from the show, even though Crystal's song is slower and mellow compared to Beautiful Day, she sung it better. Even David Cook who won a couple years ago who sang ISHFWILF wasn't super fantastic, it was A LOT BETTER than Lee's. I loved Lee til he sang that. And I yelled at the TV.

I yelled at the tv & texted everyone who would care ~ then I couldn't sleep.  Why would U2 give permission for this to be released as a single AND allow the lyrics to be changed?  I just don't get it.   :-\  I seriously hope he doesn't win.

I noticed that. I would have pointed it out, except that I wanted to hear if he sang the song well. And he didn't, really.
I was looking forward, all this year, to Crystal singing Desire. :)

I just had the misfortune of watching the last few minutes of Idol and hearing his version. I think I'm a little traumatized....

Why did they change another lyric? From "After the flood all the colors came out" to "After the SUN all the colors came out?" I guess it will get cleaned up in studio but even the arrangement is weird. I'm all for covers, but good ones. Gah!
